China Meteorological Administration continues to issue a yellow cold wave warning, the second-highest of the three-tier system, on Monday morning as temperatures across the country remain below average. The first such warning this winter was issued on Saturday.

A prolonged period of low temperatures is expected in various regions over the next three days, the National Meteorological Center said.

From Monday through Thursday, most parts of northern regions are expected to experience daily minimum temperatures 5 C or more below historical averages, the center said.

A new wave of cold air is forecast to move north to south, affecting the central and eastern parts of the country. Temperatures are expected to drop by 4 to 8 C in Inner Mongolia autonomous region, the central and western parts of the northwestern China, and the eastern parts of South China.

On Monday and Tuesday, most of the southern regions are forecast to experience rain or snow. Freezing rain is expected in certain high-altitude areas in Guizhou and Hunan provinces.
