A strong cold front will arrive at Xinjiang from Monday, bringing strong winds and causing the temperatures to drop by 6 to 8 degrees Celsius, the NMC said.

Smog will envelop Beijing and surrounding regions from Sunday to Wednesday and gradually weaken due to rainfall and a cold front from late Wednesday to Thursday, according to the NMC.

Rain will be seen in parts of southern China including Jiangxi Province and Guangxi Zhuang Autonomous Region, the center added.
