From Sunday to Monday evening, rainstorms carrying a potential 100 to 180 millimetres of rain are anticipated to pelt some parts of Hainan, Guangdong, Fujian provinces and Taiwan, the National Meteorological Centre (NMC) said in a statement Sunday.
North China’s Beijing and Tianjin municipalities, as well as Hebei and Shanxi provinces will be hit by heavy rain and storms during the period, the NMC added.
Storms are also anticipated in some parts of Yunnan, Gansu, Shaanxi, Jiangsu, Jiangxi, Zhejiang, Hunan and Sichuan provinces, it said.
The centre advised local governments of affected areas to take precautions against possible water-logging and floods brought about by the upcoming storms.
China has a four-tier colour-coded warning system for severe weather, with red being the most serious, followed by orange, yellow and blue. The NMC first issued the blue alert on Saturday.
