BEIJING- China’s meteorological authority on Monday issued its blue alert for a cold wave, forecasting big temperature drops and gales across most of the central and eastern regions of the country.

From Monday morning to Wednesday morning, temperatures would be expected to plunge by 12 to 14 degrees Celsius in some parts of northeast China, regions south of the Yangtze River and also south China, according to the National Meteorological Centre on Monday.

Some parts of Jilin would see temperatures slashed by over 16 degrees Celsius.

Gales are expected to hit the aforementioned areas, said the centre.

The centre warned against the cold wave’s impact on agriculture and advised the public to take precautions against both the temperature change and the wind.
