Cold front to hit north China, blizzard eased in east

A COLD front is expected to sweep the northern part of China over the next three days, bringing strong wind and a temperature drop, the China Meteorological Administration (CMA) said yesterday.

Small to moderate snow or sleet is forecast in the northern and southwestern part of Xinjiang Uygur Autonomous Region, western Tibet Autonomous Region and the northeastern part of China.

The cold front will cause a temperature drop of four to six degrees Celsius since February 15 in central and eastern parts of Inner Mongolia Autonomous Region, north China and northeastern China.

The central and the eastern part of China will see a temperature drop of three to five degrees Celsius.

Areas in Hunan and Guizhou provinces would expect freezing rain over the following three days.

The CMA also said the blizzard condition which had stricken eastern Jiangsu and Zhejiang provinces had eased to small to moderate snow or sleet.

The National Meteorological Center had cleared the blizzard warning by 6pm yesterday, 24 hours after the issuance, the CMA said.
