In the first ten days of August, rainfall in the north became more and more frequent, and the amount of rainfall gradually increased. A new round of heavy rainfall will affect more than ten provinces.

  The Central Meteorological Observatory predicts that from the night of the 10th to the 13th, there will be a heavy rainfall in the eastern part of Northwest China, northern China, northeast China, and Huanghuai. Among them, southern Gansu, southern Shaanxi, northern Henan, southwestern Shanxi, northern and southern Hebei, Beijing, northern Tianjin, Liaoning and other places had heavy rains and local heavy rains.

The rainfall in Beijing, Tianjin, Hebei, Liaoning and other places will reach the strongest since the flood season.

  Meteorological experts reminded that due to the impact of heavy rainfall, the upper reaches of the Yangtze River, the Haihe River, and the Liaohe River must be protected against floods and urban and rural waterlogging. At present, the No. 3 flood of the Yellow River is evolving to the middle and lower reaches. The Ministry of Water Resources discussed on the 9th to request scientific dispatch of the Xiaolangdi and Longyangxia reservoirs. At the same time of arresting flood water, taking into account the operation of reservoir sand discharge, preventing reservoir siltation, and maintaining the benign use of the project.

  Some rivers in the northern region have not received water for many years. Local officials and the masses are not aware of flood control and have insufficient experience in dealing with floods. The Ministry of Water Resources requires local governments to do a good job in forecasting and early warning, dike inspections, reservoir safety during floods, and rainstorm prevention.

Typhoon "Mikra" may land in Fujian today

  August is the month with the most typhoons in a year, with an average of 5.7 typhoons. Recently, the subtropical high has moved northward, leaving room for typhoon activity in the Northwest Pacific and South China Sea, and typhoons have become active again.

  The tropical depression in the South China Sea strengthened into the sixth typhoon "Mikra" this year on the morning of the 10th. At 5 o'clock in the afternoon, "Mikra" strengthened from tropical storm to severe tropical storm. Its center is located about 390 kilometers south of Xiamen, Fujian. On the sea.

  The Central Meteorological Observatory predicts that "Mikra" will move northward at a speed of 25-30 kilometers per hour, and its intensity will increase. It will land on the coast of Zhangpu-Pingtan, Fujian from the morning to the morning of the 11th (23 -28 m/s, 9-10 level, tropical storm level or severe tropical storm level), the intensity gradually weakened after landing. Affected by this, from 14:00 on the 10th to 14:00 on the 11th, there will be 6-7 strong winds along the coast of Taiwan Island and Fujian, and there will be heavy to heavy rains in eastern Fujian and central and southern Taiwan, and local heavy rains (100-110 mm).

  At 16:00 on August 10th, the State General Defense Agency initiated the emergency response to flood prevention and typhoon level IV. The State General Defense Agency's working group has rushed to Fujian at noon on the 10th to guide and assist typhoon defense work.

  Considering that Typhoon No. 6 this year will land on the coast of Fujian on the morning of the 11th, Beijing-Tianjin-Hebei and Liaoning will see the strongest rainfall since the flood season, and there will also be sustained heavy rains or heavy rains in the western Sichuan Basin.

  The Central Meteorological Observatory predicts that in the next three days, there will be high-temperature weather above 35°C in Jiangnan, central and northern South China, Sichuan Basin, Jianghuai, Jianghan, and southern Xinjiang Basin. The highest temperature in some areas can reach 37-39°C, which can reach local areas. Above 40°C.

  Even looking at the longer-term mid-term weather, this high temperature trend has not been alleviated. In the next 10 days, high-temperature weather with daily maximum temperatures of 35-37°C will occur in Jiangnan, Jianghuai, northeastern South China, and eastern Sichuan Basin for 4 to 8 days, with local temperatures reaching 38-40°C.

Chongqing has 12.1 high temperature days in August, which is the month with the most high temperature days of the year, while Fuzhou has 10.9 days.

  The hot weather in the Jiangnan area needs to be paid attention from around August 11. This is because the rain basically ceases from around the 11th, and the heat will quickly return. Not only will the northern part of the Jiangnan return to the high temperature ranks, but also Jianghuai, Jianghan and other places will immediately When it gets hot, Wuhan, Hefei, Nanjing and other places may be hit by high temperatures.

  In comparison, in the north with frequent rains, there are not many high-temperature weather recently. Although the highest temperature in many places will be above 30℃, the body will still feel a little hot, but fortunately, the temperature will drop significantly when the rain is heavy. (Finish)
