BEIJING, Feb. 13 (Xinhua) -- China's meteorological authorities Thursday issued a blue alert for heavy snowstorms in the northern regions.

The National Meteorological Center said from Thursday afternoon to Friday afternoon, snowstorms would hit parts of Beijing, Tianjin, and Hebei Province, as well as Inner Mongolia Autonomous Region, with 4 to 6 centimeters of snowfall expected.

In some areas, blizzards are expected to drop up to 10 centimeters of snow, it warned.

The center asked local authorities to take precautions with roads, railways and electricity and telecommunication infrastructure and advised residents to avoid unnecessary outdoor activities.

China has a four-tier color-coded weather warning system, with red representing the most severe, followed by orange, yellow and blue. Enditem
