The provincial weather station issued an orange alert for low temperatures and freezing rain and snow at 4 pm Sunday and a yellow alert for snowstorms at 6 a.m. Sunday. The first snow of this winter has hit many parts of the province since Saturday evening.

As of 2 pm Sunday, 17 counties, cities, or districts had seen the depth of the accumulated snow exceed 10 cm.

To ensure the safety of teachers and students, the cities of Loudi, Huaihua, and Shaoyang, and the Tujia-Miao Prefecture of Xiangxi, have issued a circular to suspend schools.

China has a four-tier, color-coded weather warning system, with red representing the most severe weather, followed by orange, yellow, and blue.
