BEIJING, Oct. 20 (Xinhua) -- China's top meteorological authority said on Sunday that a new cold front will sweep China's northern regions on Monday, bringing high winds and temperature drops.
Most parts of the Inner Mongolia Autonomous Region and areas in the northeast of the country will see temperature decline by as much as 10 degrees Celsius, according to the forecast by the National Meteorological Center (NMC).
The cold front is also expected to bring small to medium snow to Inner Mongolia starting on Tuesday.
Cold fronts and high winds in recent periods have lessened smoggy air conditions in the north of the country. The weekends at the Chinese capital Beijing are clear due to influence of such windy weather.
