Moreover, both Beijing and Tianjin saw three consecutive days of temperatures above 40 degrees Celsius for the first time ever.

The picture is similar for other parts of North China, with Orange Heat Warnings in place in Hebei Province, Tianjin, northern-central Shandong Province, northern Henan Province and the Central Shaanxi Plain. 

Temperatures of 40 degrees Celsius and above are expected in the next few days in southern-central Hebei Province and northwestern Henan Province. 

Meanwhile, parts of South China and Northwest China are also facing a bout of extreme heat; Orange Warnings are in place for central Jiangxi Province, northern-central Fujian Province, eastern and southern Zhejiang Province and eastern parts of the south Xinjiang basin. 

In many areas of South China, humidity will make temperatures feel like 40 degrees Celsius in the coming days.

For most of the Huanghuai region – an area which includes parts of Henan, Shandong, Anhui and Jiangsu Provinces – heavy rain is expected from around July 11 onwards.

Flooding has already affected parts of the Chongqing Municipality.
