Winter weather warning

ANOTHER strong cold wave is expected to hit China's central, eastern and southern regions from today to next Tuesday, bringing snowstorms and plummeting temperatures, China's Central Meteorological Station said yesterday.

The cold snap would be much stronger than the previous one, which caused a fall of up to 18 degrees Celsius in China's northern regions from last Saturday. It is expected to bring icy weather to the country's southern areas, the CMS said.

Regions along with the Yellow and Huaihe rivers could expect heavy snow and rainfall from Saturday. Areas alongside the Yangtze and Huaihe rivers and the northern parts of the southern areas of the Yangtze River would experience snow, or even snowstorms in some of these regions.

Temperatures in the country's southern regions would slide by 6 to 8 degrees Celsius, and the rainfall would not retreat until Tuesday, according to the CMS.

The previous cold snap hitting the country's northern areas brought chaos, including flight delays, highway closures, traffic jams and problems with power and heat supplies.
