Coastal areas in East China should be on full alert for rainstorms and strong winds as Typhoon In-Fa may make landfall between Zhejiang and Fujian provinces on Saturday night or Sunday, the National Meteorological Center said.

The cyclone is forecast to possibly land in form of a typhoon or severe typhoon, the third- and second-strongest ones among the six levels. The center said it hasn't ruled out the possibility that the cyclone will move northward along Zhejiang without landing.

In any event, large-scale heavy rain will hit East China's Zhejiang, Jiangsu, Anhui and Jiangxi provinces as well as Shanghai from Thursday to Monday due to the typhoon, the center said.

Zhejiang is expected to have the heaviest rain among all the areas, with an estimated 500 millimeters of precipitation forecast from Saturday to Monday.

The center added that at present Typhoon In-Fa is moving at the speed of 5 to 10 kilometers per hour to the west and north and will arrive at the East China Sea on Friday afternoon.
