Rain in central and south China over the next three days is expected to drench drought-hit regions, according to the country's weather forecast department.

At least light to moderate rains would saturate most of the regions to the south of the Yangtze River by early Sunday morning, said the China Meteorological Administration (CMA).

The CMA also said that heavy rains would hit the provinces of Guizhou, Hunan, Hubei, Anhui, Jiangxi, Jiangsu, Zhejiang, as well as Shanghai.

While saying the rains would ease the drought, the CMA also warned of the possibility of floods as the rains were expected to continue for a few days.
