The average temperature in China this winter plunged to its lowest in 27 years, the People’s Daily reports.

Between December 1, 2011, and February 29, 2012, the average temperature in the country was 4.8 degrees below zero degrees Celsius, one degree less than that of the same period during the previous years, said Chen Zhenlin, a spokesman for China Meteorological Administration, Monday at a news conference in Beijing.

Ren Fumin from the National Climate Center said during the last five winters, China had undergone three cold winters in which the average temperatures were at least 0.5 degrees Celsius less than that of the same period between 1981 and 2010.
