Maybe it came from this cloud which is from the same time period.

East Asian rainy season (plum rains) starts in June and can last all the way into August, it is the result of a weather front that is created when the moist air over the Pacific meets the cooler Asian continental air mass.

Very bad floods in China...

And no one on report was wearing a facemask. Is Covid gone from there?

Maybe not quite on topic but is a bit extreme and weather related!

Different regions of China not catching a break at all this year between a virus, droughts, flooding and now locusts.

China fears more devastating floods as Yangtze River’s levels rise again

Dam collapse in China could point to a 'black swan' disaster

Floods highlight importance of food security

Snow in these parts of Oz for the first time in over forty years:

Parts of Tasmania have been blanketed in snow for the first time in about 40 years as a wintry blast transformed it and areas of Victoria into a winter wonderland.

Launceston was hammered by snow as the temperature at the airport plummeted below zero just after 9pm on Tuesday while Scottsdale, to the northwest, reached 0.9 degrees about half an hour later.

It was all caused by an air mass moving north from Antarctica.

Bureau of Meteorology Matthew Thomas told Yahoo News Australia the snow forming in Tasmania’s north is a weather event not seen in the area for about 40 years.

“The last time we saw snow settle in Launceston was in the early 1970s,” Mr Thomas said.

“It’s a very rare event for Tasmania. We also saw some snow settled in Hobart with the last two occurrences in 1986 and 2015.

“However, it’s not uncommon to see snow in the south of Tasmania.”

This would be like the city of Porto in Portugal getting snow from a northern hemisphere perspective. 41N.

It has been horrible in the region, the humidity along with the 45-50 degrees is tough. Hasn't gotten below 38 at night where I am so can't even walk the mutt.
