China will end 2020 with a cold wave, as a strong wave of cold air rages across parts of central and eastern China from Monday to Thursday, dropping temperatures in more than 25 cities to record lows according to the National Meteorological Center.

About 80 percent of the country will be affected by the cold wave. The temperature in most parts of central and east China is expected to drop by 10 degrees Celsius, while temperatures in some areas in north and south China will drop by 12 degrees.
