Analysis of Rain, Snow and Freezing Weather Process in the Middle and East of China from January 25 to 29, 2022

Fang Yu


This study used data from the National Meteorological Information Center of China, National Centers for Environmental Prediction of the United States, and others in late January 2022. The main analysis is of the circulation situation and precipitation profile for late January 2022. The main influencing factors are: 1) cold air brought by a high-altitude trough to the south. 2) The prolonged convergence of cold and warm air currents. 3) Warm and humid airflow climbing at lower levels. The result led to widespread snow and rain and freezing weather in east-central China from 25th to 29th January 2022. Blizzards to heavy snowfall were reported in Henan, Hubei, and Hunan.
