A cold front has recently swept across China, driving out the lingering mildness of the previous season while kicking off the second solar term of the winter.

Xiaoxue, or Minor Snow in English, started on Wednesday, in the wake of a new round of temperature plummeting from 7 to 20 degrees.

It is the 20th of the 24 solar terms in the lunar lunar calendar, which usually refers to the period of time from Nov 22 to Dec 7. During this time, northwest wind usually frequents the Chinese territory, with the temperature of many areas falling below zero.
