Smog will persist in the day time in parts of Hebei, Tianjin, Shandong, Henan, Jiangsu, Anhui, Shanghai, Zhejiang, Hubei and Hunan, the NMC said.

The NMC advised people in the affected regions to wear masks. It forecast that smog will ease on Monday thanks to a moderately strong north wind, which will lead to a drop in temperature.
