BEIJING, April 11 (Xinhua) -- The National Meteorological Center on Wednesday forecast a cold front in north China and heavy showers in southern areas over the coming two days.

The cold front on Wednesday is likely to affect Xinjiang Uygur autonomous region, Inner Mongolia autonomous region, northwestern and northeastern regions, north China and regions along the Yellow and Huai rivers, lowering temperatures and bringing strong winds, according to forecasting.

On Thursday, it is expected that temperatures will drop by four to six degrees Celsius in regions along the Yangtze and Huai rivers and southwestern areas.

Meanwhile, light and moderate rain will fall in southern parts of north China, regions along the Yellow, Huai and Yangtze rivers, as well as south and southwest China over the next two days, the center said.

During the period, regions south of the Yangtze River and northern parts of south China will experience heavy rain, with some regions seeing storms, the meteorologists added.

The center also forecast rain in the country's winter-wheat-growing areas from Wednesday to Thursday, noting that parts of Shanxi, Shaanxi, and Henan provinces will see precipitation up to 15 millimeters.
