Today (July 7th), we entered the fifth solar term of summer-Xiaoshu. As the saying goes, "it’s a little summer, but it’s a big summer." The arrival of the summer solar term means that China is about to enter the wettest and sultry period of the year. China Weather Network specially launched a map of sauna days nationwide to see where the "steamer mode" will be opened.
Jiangnan is hot as a "steamer", and the Qinghai-Tibet Plateau has no "steaming" in the world.
Entering the summer solar term, everything is flourishing and the summer heat is transpiration. The temperature in all parts of our country continues to rise, and the precipitation also increases obviously. The north and south of the Yangtze River have entered the stage of high temperature and high humidity in a year, and the most difficult sauna day model has been opened.
According to the map of the national sauna days launched by China Weather Network, during the annual summer solar terms, sauna days are most likely to appear in Jiangxi, Fujian, Zhejiang and other places, and more than half of the time in 15 days, they have to endure the steamboat-like sultry feeling; In Guangdong, central Guangxi, Hainan, Hunan, Hubei, Henan, central and southern Hebei, southwestern Shaanxi, northern Chongqing and other places, the number of sauna days can also reach 5 to 8 days, which is unbearable; The number of sauna days in the eastern part of Southwest China, North China, the eastern part of Huanghuai and other places is less than 5 days, and there are fewer days in most parts of Northeast China, Shandong Peninsula and parts of Xinjiang, which is less than two days. Such hot and humid weather can barely withstand it; Tibet, Qinghai, Gansu and other places did not have sauna days during the summer solar term, and there was no "steaming" in the world, which was really enviable. Although there were no sauna days in southern Xinjiang and western Inner Mongolia, they had to undergo the "baking test" of dry heat.
Light summer weather | Rain and heat are abundant, and typhoons are active
After a slight summer heat, it is hot for three points a day. Affected by the monsoon climate, rain and heat are in the same season in many places in China. During the summer heat season, both precipitation and temperature began to show extremes, and the weather gradually changed from dry heat to sultry heat, and the "sauna mode" was opened.
"It’s summer day and night." Shortly after entering the summer solar term, the hottest dog days of the year will also kick off. The heat wave is rolling, refreshing and hard to find, and all-weather heat has become the norm. Especially in the south, the lowest temperature sometimes even exceeds 30℃, and it is hot day and night, with no chance to breathe.
With the help of summer heat, China’s summer area has further expanded, reaching about 5.25 million square kilometers. Although it has not reached the maximum, there is little room for further development.
"The bamboo is raining first, and the mountain is already thundering." Slight summer is the solar term with the most precipitation in the whole year, and it is also the season with frequent thunderstorms. With the subtropical high moving northward, the "main battlefield" of precipitation in China gradually shifted northward, and the rainy season in the middle and lower reaches of the Yangtze River ended, and the rainy season in the north began one after another.
During the summer heat, typhoon activities also entered an active period. According to statistics, the summer solar term is the solar term with the largest number of typhoons landing in China, which mainly affects Guangdong, Taiwan Province, Fujian, Hainan and other places, and these places have gradually entered the critical period of typhoon prevention in a year. At this time, there are many powerful typhoons landing in China, including the strongest typhoon "rammasun" landing in China since 1949.
Slight summer phenology | The warm wind has arrived, and everything is crazy.
There are three stages in the summer, one is when the warm wind comes, the other is when the cricket lives in the space, and the third is when the eagle begins to gather. At this time, there is no longer a cool breeze on the earth, and almost all the winds are full of "enthusiasm". Because of the heat, the cricket left the field and came to the corner of the courtyard to escape the heat. The eagle also chose to fly to the cool high air for activities.
There is also hope for a bumper harvest in the heat of a little summer. In the summer, plenty of sunshine and abundant rain are conducive to the growth of everything. At this time, special attention should be paid to field management such as preventing high temperature and heat damage, drought, waterlogging and pests.
Light summer custom | Eating and drinking in midsummer is the most enjoyable thing.
"Eating and drinking in midsummer is the most enjoyable thing." The summer solar terms and the dog days have come one after another, and people who are troubled by the summer heat often feel poor appetite, so they will prefer cool and refreshing food.
In the north, there is a food custom of "jiaozi on the head, two on the face, pancakes and eggs on the three feet". Eating a plate of vegetarian stuffing on jiaozi’s head is not only appetizing, but also a symbol of full blessing. In the south, Xiao Shu pays attention to eating "three treasures"-Monopterus albus, lotus root and mung bean sprouts, which are cool and cool. There is also the custom of "eating new things" in the southern summer heat. Every household eats new rice and tastes new wine to thank the natural gifts and celebrate the grain harvest.
"The wind moves the lotus to make it fragrant, and the heart is calm and naturally cool." In the summer, it is hot and warm, but there is no lack of pleasant summer time. Let’s calm down, watch the fireflies flying, listen to the cicadas, smell the lotus fragrance in the wind, taste the tea in the cup, and greet the extreme heat with leisurely warmth.
