BEIJING, Dec. 7 (Xinhua) -- Another cold front will hit west, north and northeast China over the next two or three days, bringing snow and high wind, the China Meteorological Administration (CMA) said here on Sunday.

Parts of the western Xinjiang Uygur Autonomous Region and Tibet Autonomous Region, northern Inner Mongolia Autonomous Region and northeastern Heilongjiang Province will get snow on Monday and Tuesday, while the southeastern coastal Fujian Province and eastern Taiwan region will get rain.

The cold front will also bring strong winds to north China's Bohai and Huanghai seas, the Taiwan Straits and the South China Sea, the CMA said.

An earlier cold front, the strongest so far this winter, drove down temperatures by 6 to 10 degrees Celsius in most of China over the past three to five days.

A snowstorm hit the northeastern provinces of Jilin, Liaoning and Heilongjiang on Wednesday and Thursday.
