In Jilin, where heavy snow fell late Sunday, traffic authorities have temporarily imposed traffic control measures, as frozen roads posed a potential danger to vehicles.

Flights have not been affected in Changchun, capital of Jilin, with no reports of travellers being stranded by the snow at Changchun Longjia Airport.

Education authorities in Jilin urged schools and kindergartens in mountainous and semi-mountainous areas of the province to stop classes as the snowstorms continued.

In an emergency notice issued on Monday, Jilin Provincial Education Department asked primary and middle schools as well as kindergartens in flat areas to stop or reschedule classes according to weather conditions.

According to the latest weather forecast released by Jilin Provincial Meteorological Observatory, the province will receive more snowfall in the next 24 hours. Heavy snowstorms are expected in cities across Jilin, including Changchun, Jilin and Songyuan.
