Affected by cold fronts and heavy winds, floating sand and dust are expected to hit some areas in Xinjiang Uygur Autonomous Region, Ningxia Hui Autonomous Region, Inner Mongolia Autonomous Region and the provinces of Gansu and Shaanxi, according to the National Meteorological Center.

Some regions in Xinjiang and Inner Mongolia will see severe sandstorms, the center said.
