The cold front will drop temperatures by three to six degrees Celsius in the middle and lower reaches of the Yangtze River and regions south of the river from Feb. 26 to 28, according to the National Meteorological Center.

Meanwhile, cloudy and rainy weather will continue to affect regions along the Yangtze and Huai rivers during the period, the center said.
