BEIJING, Dec 16 – A cold front will sweep China’s central and eastern regions over the next three days, bringing lower temperatures and strong winds, the country’s meteorological authority forecast on Sunday.

The cold front will lower temperatures by 4 to 8 degrees Celsius in central and east China from Sunday evening to Tuesday, the National Meteorological Center said.

Some areas in Inner Mongolia Autonomous Region, northeast and north China and regions along the Yellow and Huaihe rivers will experience gales, the centre said.

Affected by the cold front, moderate snow, rain or sleet will fall in regions along the Yangtze and Hanjiang rivers, as well as Anhui Province, it said.
