The winter chill continues for several cities in China as the national observatory renewed yet another blue alert earlier today, state-run news agency Xinhua reports.
Though the frigid temperatures were expected to rise following last week's massive that led to flight and train cancellations, several places in central and eastern China are still experiencing subzero temperatures this week.
Temperatures dipped below zero degrees Celcius in Shanghai, Changsha, Hangzhou, Hefei, Guiyang, Nanchang, Nanjing and Wuhan, and remain near freezing in China's southern provinces, which could also see rain or even snow in the next 48 hours. Heavy winds could also hit Gansu, Inner Mongolia, Shandong and other places in northern China over the next few days.
Authorities remind people to take extra precautions for cold weather and icy roads during this time.
