There seems to have been no spring in Guangdong, with the province leaping straight into summer when the temperature reached 32.8℃ on February 26th and 29.3℃ on the 27th.
However, according to the Guangdong Meteorological Service, a new cold wave is expected to hit Guangdong between March 2nd and 4th. There will be a sharp drop in temperatures, with the lowest to be 13℃ on March 4th (Wednesday).
Cloudy and overcast weather is expected for the next three days, with warm temperatures in most regions of Guangdong.
From the evening of February 29th to March 1st, there will be light rain across northern Guangdong and Zhaoqing, with storms and gale-force winds hitting some regions and a slight drop in temperature. Other cities and counties are expected to see cloudy and overcast weather with a chance of drizzly rain and light fog in the mornings and evenings.
It is suggested not to put away your winter clothes because you may still need them in March. The most important thing to remember is, no matter the weather, you must always wear a mask in public during the epidemic.
