Cold fronts to chill China, bring rain to south

Two strong cold fronts will sweep China during the next two days, bringing temperature drops across the country and rains in south China, the National Meteorological Center (NMC) forecast on Sunday.

A cold front moving eastward will hit most regions of China from Sunday to Monday, bringing down temperatures by 4 to 6 degrees Celsius, the center said.

Affected by the cold front, regions south of the Yangtze River will see persistent rains in the next two days, the NMC said.

On Monday, another cold front will hit northern regions of Xinjiang Uygur Autonomous Region and cause another round of strong winds and dropping temperatures in north China.
