Plain areas in north China, regions along the Yellow and Huai rivers, the middle and lower reaches of the Yangtze River and south China will see haze on Sunday, the center said.
 
On Monday, light and moderate snow will fall in northern parts of Xinjiang Uygur Autonomous Region, with some areas expecting heavy snow, the center said.
