China's northernmost city just saw its coldest day ever

Quick Summary

Temperatures in China's northernmost city plunged to minus 53°C (minus 63.4 degrees Fahrenheit) -- its coldest ever recorded, meteorologists said.

The temperature at 7am on January 21, also the first day of the Lunar New Year, registered at minus 53°C, according to the Heilongjiang Meteorological Bureau.

Just months ago, China saw its worst heat wave since 1961 -- which prompted massive power cuts and even reduced rivers to drought levels.
