The Meteorological and Geophysical Bureau (SMG) remarked in a reply to the Times that a recent “weather forecast” that is going viral online is unreliable. It urges people “not to believe false information on temperature forecasts.” The “online weather forecast” claimed, citing the mainland weather authority, that temperatures in Guangdong over the Lunar New Year period are expected to fall below zero. The local weather bureau added that current scientific capabilities cannot support reliable temperature forecasts beyond 10 days.
