Rains continue to batter northern and central areas of China, but the mercury is soaring in the south. China’s weather authority issued an orange alert for high temperatures on Sunday morning, which is the second highest level under the country’s four-tier warning system. The region is facing what could be the hottest weekend of the year, with temperatures expected to hit as high as 40 degrees Celsius in some areas. The range of affected areas is also expected to expand. Shanghai has been sweltering under intense heat since Wednesday, and its local weather authority raised its warning from orange to the highest red on Friday afternoon – the first this summer.
