BEIJING - Heavy rains will sweep China's northern regions and some southern areas over the next three days, the country's weather authority forecast Saturday.

Most parts of north China, the Sichuan Basin and the central and southern part of south China will see heavy rains or rainstorms from Saturday to Monday, the National Meteorological Center said.

Heavy rainstorms are expected in the north of Hebei, the west and north of Beijing and the southwest of the Sichuan Basin, the NMC said.

The NMC calls for precautions to be taken against potential disasters caused by heavy rainfalls, including mudslides, mountain torrents and urban waterlogging.
