From Sunday morning to Monday morning, snowstorms are likely to hit parts of Inner Mongolia, Hebei, Tianjin, Shandong, Liaoning, Jilin and Heilongjiang.
In some of these regions, blizzards are expected to drop over 40 centimeters of snow, it said.
The center advised residents to stay indoors and urged local authorities to take precautions with roads, railways, electricity and telecommunications.
