BEIJING, Nov 18 – Cold fronts will continue to affect north China over the next few days, bringing heavy snow, strong winds and temperature drops, the country’s meteorological authority said on Sunday.

On Sunday and Monday, a weak cold front will lower temperatures by three to eight degrees Celsius and bring gales across northern regions, the National Meteorological Center said.

In the period, moderate or showery snow will fall in eastern parts of Inner Mongolia Autonomous Region and some regions in the northeast, with parts of Jilin Province seeing heavy snow and snowstorms, the centre said.

Affected by another strong cold front, northern parts of Xinjiang Uygur Autonomous Region will see moderate, showery or heavy snow accompanied by temperature drops and gales starting on Tuesday, the centre said.

Meanwhile, rains are likely to soak most southern areas starting Tuesday, with heavy rain expected in Hunan and Jiangxi provinces, the centre said.
