Rainstorm blue warning!

The southern region has the heaviest rainfall since the flood season

  The Central Meteorological Observatory forecasts that from May 9 to 13, the southern region will experience the strongest rainfall since the flood season.

  This rainfall process will develop from west to east. The key rainfall areas are in southern Jiangnan and most of southern China. The daily rainfall will generally reach heavy to heavy rains, and local heavy rains or extremely heavy rains will occur.

  Among them, most of the accumulated precipitation is 50-70 millimeters, 100-200 millimeters from southern Jiangnan to most of southern China, and more than 300 millimeters locally in central and northern Guangxi, central and northern Guangdong and coastal areas.

There will be strong convective weather such as short-term heavy precipitation and local thunderstorms and strong winds in the above-mentioned areas.

  On the morning of May 9, the Central Meteorological Observatory issued several blue warnings for heavy rain.

It is expected that from day to night on the 9th, rainfall will mainly occur in eastern Southwest China and western South China. There will be heavy to heavy rains in parts of southern Chongqing, central and eastern Guizhou, most of Hunan, eastern Yunnan, northern Guangxi, and northwestern Fujian. , there are heavy rainstorms in parts of southeastern Guizhou, northern Guangxi and other places.

  It is expected that the rainfall process will continue until the 13th, of which 10-12th will be the period with the strongest rainfall.

  At present, the China Meteorological Administration has launched a three-level emergency response.

  What caused the heavy rainfall in the south?

Chen Tao, chief forecaster of the Central Meteorological Observatory, explained that first, the position of the subtropical high pressure in the western Pacific is stable, and the warm and humid air on its western edge and the cold air from the north continue to meet in Jiangnan and South China. .

  Second, the southwest water vapor transport in the lower atmosphere in southern my country has been significantly enhanced recently. Affected by the Bay of Bengal cyclone, it is more conducive to the transport of water vapor to the south of my country, providing sufficient water vapor conditions for this rainfall.

  Meteorological experts reminded that persistent heavy rainfall can easily lead to secondary geological disasters, and extreme weather may occur. It is recommended that Guizhou, Guangxi, Guangdong, Hunan, Jiangxi, Fujian and other provinces take disaster prevention measures. The public needs to obtain local meteorological disasters in a timely manner. Warning information, prepare for defense.

  In the next 10 days, there will be frequent cold air activities, and the average temperature in most parts of the central and eastern regions will be lower than the same period of the previous year. Among them, the temperature in eastern Northwest China, North China, eastern Inner Mongolia, northern Northeast China, and eastern Southwest China will be 2-4 °C lower.

  Meteorological experts said that due to strong winds and cooling weather, spring planting operations in northern regions, especially those in the northeast, may be temporarily suspended.

In addition, if the temperature is relatively low, it may also have a certain impact on the growth of the sown crops.

  In the coming week, the temperature in the northern region will remain at a low level, and the body will feel slightly cooler, especially in the morning and evening.
