Cold air moving southward will bring low temperatures and strong
winds to northern China over the next three days, the China
Meteorological Administration forecast on Sunday.
Temperature drops will range from four to eight degrees Celsius
in most parts of north and northeast China and plummet by more than
12 degrees in some regions.
And fresh to strong winds are expected to sweep these areas
including those on the coast.
Moderate to heavy rain will fall in southwest China as well as
areas along the Yangtze valley from February 12-14.
Fog will blanket parts of Sichuan, Chongqing, Guizhou, Jiangxi, Fujian, Zhejiang, Hunan and Hubei with the visibility ranging from 100-600
meters. Haze is likely to develop in parts of south China.
