Updated: 2004-08-09 21:29

China will experience its highest temperatures of the year over next two days, said a Central Meteorological Station forecast.

The forecast said temperatures in some parts of east China, such as Zhejiang Province, northeast part of Jiangxi Province and north part of Fujian Province, will reach 40 degrees Celsius in the coming two to three days, while temperatures elsewhere will range from 35 to 38 degree Celsius.

The Central Meteorological Station has released a high-temperature warning for the week to remind citizens to prevent heatstroke and to arrange reasonable working plans.

The record high temperatures will continue to put pressure on the country's already strained power supply. The Central Meteorological Station warned relevant departments to arrange scientific power consumption.
