Most parts of southwest China will experience snow or rain over the next three days, as the cold wave continues, the National Meteorological Center forecast Saturday.

Medium-to-heavy snowfalls will hit most parts of Tibet Autonomous Region, southeastern areas of Qinghai Province, northeastern parts of Guizhou province, and northern areas of Hunan province.

The southeastern parts of Tibet and northwestern parts of Yunnan Province will have medium-to-heavy rains or snowfalls. Parts of Guizhou will have icy rain.

The cold snap will also bring temperature drops to the regions along Yellow and Huai rivers and further south Saturday. Temperatures in the region will drop 3 to 6 degrees Celsius or 8 to 10 degrees Celsius in some areas.
