Shanghai turned into a winter wonderland over the weekend. On Saturday morning, most areas of the city received snow or sleet. Western areas of Shanghai saw the heaviest snowfall.

Temperatures plunged over the weekend. On Saturday, the high maxed out at 6 degrees Celsius (42 degrees Fahrenheit). The unseasonably cold weather was caused by a blast of arctic air that caused temperatures to fall across the country, including Shanghai. 

In case you missed out on all the fun, here’s a glimpse of the season’s first snow:
