Most Chinese provinces would see rainfall in the next 24 hours with a tropical depression approaching the south, the country's meteorological authority said Sunday evening.

The China Meteorological Administration (CMA) forecast rainfall all over China, except parts of northwest China and Inner Mongolia Autonomous Region, and some south China regions.

A tropical depression formed in waters near northeast Taiwan would trigger heavy rainfall and sometimes thunderstorms in Jiangsu, Jiangxi, Fujian, Guangdong and Taiwan, it said.

The tropical depression is moving toward Fujian Province on China's southeast coast at a speed of 20 kilometers per hour.
