Cold front heads south, takes wind with it


14:03, March 10, 2013

BEIJING, March 10 (Xinhua) -- After ushering in winds strong enough to move a plane in north China, a cold front moved southward on Sunday, according to the National Meteorological Center (NMC).

Temperatures will drop by 6 to 10 degrees Celsius in southern Xinjiang, regions between the Yellow River and the Huaihe River and those between the Yangtze River and the Huaihe River on Sunday and Monday.

Strong winds will also hit most areas affected by the cold front, according to the NMC.

Before it began to head southward, gales brought by the cold front had hit parts of north China.

A parked Boeing 737, which belongs to the Tianjin branch of Air China, slid into a boarding gallery at the Tianjin Binhai International Airport at 12:21 p.m. on Saturday, as gales blew at speeds of up to 29 meters per second, according to the city's safety bureau under the Civil Aviation Administration of China.

Many trains reduced their speeds and Line 9 of Tianjin's light rail network suspended operation on Saturday due to strong gales, according to the city's railway authorities.

Gales blowing at speeds of up 30 meters per second tore off part of the T3 terminal roof at the Beijing Capital International Airport, according to the airport's official Twitter-like Sina Weibo account.
