超強寒流席捲中國,北京迎半世紀以來最冷的一天

中國首都北京在周四(1月7日)迎來了半世紀以來最冷的一個早晨,最低氣溫達到零下19.6攝氏度。 儘管和世界公認的最冷首都,蒙古國的烏蘭巴托(Ulaanbaatar)和哈薩克斯坦的努爾蘇丹(Nur-Sultan)相比還有著不小的差距,但這一低溫已經超越了莫斯科(Moscow)或格陵蘭島首府努克(Nuuk)當日的溫度。 罕見的低溫讓很多需要通勤的民眾「瑟瑟發抖」。中國媒體「財新網」報道稱,一些居民購買了膠帶堵住窗戶,防止寒風灌入室內,還有行人為避迎面大風只能倒著走。 低溫還讓已習慣通過線上點餐的人們遇到困難。在北京的很多地方,由於提供外賣配送服務的騎手數量減少,很多人遇到了”無人接單”的情況。 中國即將迎來春節。一名工作人員正在北京什剎海附近懸掛燈籠。 就連北京動物園的猴子們似乎也難以忍受。有遊客拍攝的視頻顯示,一群猴子在山上依偎在一起抱團取暖。 官方媒體援引北京氣象局的數據稱,周四凌晨5時56分,北京具有代表性的觀象台氣象站監測到了零下19.6℃的最低氣溫,這是1966年以來冬季氣溫的最低值。 此前一天,北京的氣溫跌至零下17.1℃,剛打破21世紀以來當地的最低氣溫紀錄。 「冷不怕,怕的是風,」一名北京的街頭行人對BBC說。「我看到手機上顯示的體感溫度都零下20幾度了,出門就和刀刮一樣。」 由於寒潮來襲,中國的鐵路部門對於從北京開往上海、廣州和天津等多個城市的高鐵線路採取了臨時限速運行措施,致一些列車晚點。 嚴寒並沒能令北京的冬泳愛好者卻步,依然有人在已部分結冰的河裏暢遊。 不過,由於北京冬季氣候乾燥,今年冬季已有近一個月幾乎沒有降水過程,因此在街頭看不到皚皚的白雪,也沒有導致嚴重的交通出行影響。 北京不是唯一一個受到寒流影響的中國城市。在經濟中心上海,主城區徐家匯周五(1月8日)的最低氣溫是零下5.9°C,創下了2000年來的新低,中國北部和東南部的其他主要城市也大幅降溫。 中國氣象局網站解釋說,此次寒流的主要原因是北極高空急流減弱,裹挾了大量極地冷氣團的極地渦旋(polar vortex)南下,冷空氣便一路侵入中國。 「最冷冬天」 「最冷」的冬天不止是在中國。在日本北海道的札幌市,元旦的最高氣溫為零下8.9°C,是144年以來同日最冷的記錄。 據當地媒體北海道文化放送(UHB)報道,由於創紀錄的低溫,札幌市的很多水管出現結冰現象。幾天時間內便收到了1400多起相關查詢。 北京街頭,行人們紛紛穿上了厚厚的羽絨服。 韓國首爾也經歷了罕見的低溫。據韓國氣象廳的數據,本周的寒流將首都的氣溫拉低至零下18.6攝氏度,這是當地自1986年以來的最低氣溫,也是有記錄以來第二低的氣溫。 另據《華盛頓郵報》報道,極地渦旋被推離北極後,今年冬季北半球多地的天氣恐都會面臨重大變化,包括美國和歐洲。北歐可能將面臨嚴重的寒流。 關於我們 想感受「生活 」、感受「愛 」,就學習一種語言吧。跟IFC MANDARIN真老師學習中文,自1995年,我們專門為國際企業培訓員工,課程為在職專業人士設計,助你擴闊商業朋友圈、事業更上一層樓! 👉 #企業普通話中文培訓 👉#在香港學習普通話中文 我們在線啦! 👉 #網上真人導師課 👉合作及邀稿,請電郵course@ifcmandarin.com。 About ifc Mandarin Connection If you want to feel life and love, just learn a new language.
