Rains are expected to fall throughout most of southern China in the coming ten days, a weather forecast said on Sunday.

Most parts of the rain-affected areas in southern China will receive about 20 to 40 percent more rainfall than the average in past years, the forecast from the China Meteorological Administration (CMA) said.

A weak cold front will hit northern China traveling west to east from Monday to Thursday, bringing sandstorms in eastern and southern parts of Xinjiang Uygur Autonomous Region, western part of Gansu Province and the central and western areas of the Inner Mongolia Autonomous Region, the forecast said.
