BEIJING - A cold snap will bring lower temperature to Northeast and North China in the next three days, with some areas experiencing rain and snow, the National Meteorological Center (NMC) forecast on Sunday.

Most of the Inner Mongolia autonomous region, Northeast China and North China will see a temperature fall of 4 to 6 degrees Celsius, with some areas cooled by as much as 8 degrees Celsius and swept by gales, the observatory said.

From Sunday to Monday, the western part of Xinjiang Uygur autonomous region, northern parts of the Inner Mongolia and Heilongjiang province, as well as parts of Qinghai province and the Tibet autonomous region will experience moderate rain, snow or sleet, the NMC said.

The observatory also forecast heavy rainfall in the western part of Southwest China's Yunnan province.
