BEIJING - The cold front sweeping North China will extend into the Central and East China while causing snowfall in the Northeast regions, China's meteorological authorities said Sunday.

Strong winds and temperature drops will spread to regions alongside the Yellow, Huaihe and Yangtze rivers, along with heavy rainfall in some of the regions, the National Meteorological Center (NMC) said on its website.

Parts of North and Northeast China, as well as Central and East China will see a temperature drop of six to eight degrees Celsius, or even 10 degrees Celsius in some regions on Sunday and Monday, said the NMC.

Meanwhile, parts of Xinjiang, Gansu, Inner Mongolia, Hebei, Jilin and Heilongjiang will witness snowfall and sleet on Sunday. Snow will continue to fall in Jilin and Heilongjiang on Monday, with snowstorms in some of the Northeast areas, it said.

The NMC also warned of foggy weather in parts of Jiangsu, Heibei and Shandong provinces Sunday, calling drivers to pay more attention on travelling safety in these places.
