Plus, more than 2 feet of snow

Cold reached China
The Siberian anticyclone, which provided Siberia and Yakutia with frost, split into two cores. One of these cores supports the deep cold in Yakutia, the second went south.
It sharply became colder in the southern parts of Eastern Siberia. Then the cold shackled Mongolia, Central Asia, and reached northeast China, where the air has cooled to -35°C!
