A cold front will sweep across northwest China's Xinjiang Uygur Autonomous Region Sunday in an easterly direction and bring gusty winds and temperature drops across northern China.

Over the coming three days, temperatures will drop 8 to 12 degrees Celsius in northern Xinjiang and in the western parts of both Gansu Province and Inner Mongolia Autonomous Region, China's meteorological authorities forecast Sunday.

Light to medium rain and strong winds will fall on northwestern Xinjiang Sunday and bring frost to northern areas of Xinjiang over the next two days, the National Meteorological Center's (NMC) forecast said.

Experts suggested cotton growers in Xinjiang, a major cotton production base in China, take precautions ahead of the cold snap.

Areas in eastern and southern China, including Shanghai Municipality, Zhejiang and Hunan provinces, will have rainfall over the coming three days, according to the NMC forecast.
