Tibet sees record-breaking daily temperatures
Latest Updated by 2007-01-09 10:18:08

Numerous locations in Tibet have reported record-breaking high temperatures over the last couple of days as winter seems to have already given way to spring, according to the autonomous region's meteorological station.

Temperatures in the Qamdo region in eastern Tibet reached 21.8 degrees Celsius on Friday, 1.7 degrees Celsius higher than the previous record for the same day set in 1996. Meteorological data began to be collected in the area in 1970.

In Dengqen County, also in eastern Tibet, the temperature hit 16.6 degrees Celsius on Thursday, 2.5 degrees Celsius higher than the previous record for the same day which was set in 2001.

Eight other places across the region also saw record-breaking daily temperatures over the past few days.

"Lhasa, the regional capital, also saw temperatures soar to 20.4 degrees Celsius on Thursday, just a tenth of a degree from the record high set in 2001," said Yu Zhongshui, a meteorologist with the station.

The warm weather will not last long as a cold snap is expected from the north in the next few days, said Yu.
