BEIJING - A cold front will sweep across most regions in south China over the next few days, bringing falling temperatures and strong winds, the national observatory forecast on Friday.

The cold front will cause temperatures to drop by 6 to 8 degrees Celsius in various parts of south China from Friday to Sunday, according to the National Meteorological Center (NMC).

Meanwhile, the NMC warned the chill is expected to be accompanied by strong winds.
