  Some regions in south China are forecast to experience heavy rain from Sunday evening to Monday evening, China's meteorological authorities said Sunday.

  Some areas in Anhui, Guangxi, Hunan, Jiangxi, Yunnan and Zhejiang as well as parts of northeast China will see heavy rainfall overnight and tomorrow, said the National Meteorological Center (NMC).

  Rainfall in some regions could exceed 60 centimeters. Some parts of Jiangxi and Zhejiang could see hail from Sunday to Monday evening, it said.

  From Monday evening to Wednesday evening, parts of Guangxi, Guangdong and Fujian will see "severe convective weather," which refers to gales, hail, heavy rain and thunderstorms, the NMC said.

  People in affected areas should take precautions against possible mountain torrents, mud-rock flows and urban water logging, the NMC warned.
