A strong cold front has been sweeping across the northern and eastern parts of China since late Monday, bringing rainfall to many places, meteorological authorities said.

Since Monday, the northwestern parts of the country have been influenced by a mass of strong, cold air, which resulted in a big drop in temperatures in the northern part of the Xinjiang Uygur autonomous region, the western parts of the Inner Mongolia autonomous region and Gansu province, and the northern part of Qinghai province, the National Meteorological Center said on Tuesday.

The sharpest drops in temperature were recorded in some areas of western Gansu, where the mercury fell as much as 15 C, according to the center.

The cold front has since been moving eastward and southward, sweeping across most parts of the northeastern, northern and eastern parts of China, it added.
