Other parts of northeast China will have light to moderate snow or sleet. Temperatures in most parts of China will fall by four to eight degrees Celsius.

A strong cold front will continue to grip north and southwest China over the next three days, Xinhua quoted the NMC as saying.

In China's four-colour-coded warning system, red is the most serious, followed by orange, yellow and blue.
