BEIJING — A cold front will sweep most of China’s northern regions, bringing falling temperatures and strong winds from Oct 3 onward, the national observatory forecast.

The chilly weather will be accompanied by sleet in northern part of Xinjiang, and moderate rainfall in Northern and Northeastern provinces, the center said.

It said the provinces of Sichuan and Yunnan will expect heavy rain or rainstorms in the next three days, and urged local authorities to make precautions for possible geological disasters.
