The recent April-like rainy stretch of weather will quickly get erased by a resurgence of sizzling heat in northeastern China this week.
Temperatures will soar into the middle to upper 30s C (middle to upper 90s F) across Beijing and Tianjin by the middle and later part of the week.
While a high of 31 C (88 F) is more common this time of year, the heat will especially be noticed by residents following the recent cool and wet days.
As the storm departs and high pressure settles over the Yellow Sea, hot and humid air will be pumped into the region from the south.
The heat will begin to surge in early this week. The hottest weather conditions will occur in Beijing on Friday and Saturday when temperatures will reach 36 C (97 F) daily.
It will feel oppressive outside much of this week out in the sunshine. Anyone outside should seek shade and stay hydrated to avoid any heat-related illnesses.

Detailed Beijing weather forecast
There could be some isolated thunderstorms that fire up each afternoon across the provinces of Beijing, Tianjin, Hebei and Shanxi. However, most places are expected to just remain dry, hot and muggy.
The air quality will suffer due to the heat expected this week. It will be very poor, especially during the afternoon hours when it will be hottest.
Temperatures could fall back slightly to more normal levels early the following week.
