While the storm is expected to abate by Sunday night, chief weather forecaster at Beijing's Meteorological Station warned that the dust may return on Monday.

A powerful sandstorm hit Beijing this weekend, with strong winds and dust sweeping across the streets of the China’s capital.

According to China Daily, Beijing's Municipal Observatory issued gale force wind and dust alerts on Saturday morning.

Zhang Linna, chief weather forecaster at the Beijing Meteorological Station, said while the wind will drop by Sunday night, "some dust may blow back on Monday afternoon due to the wind shifting to the south."

Zhang also advised the public to keep their windows and doors closed during the sandstorm, and urged children, the elderly, and people suffering from respiratory allergies to "reduce their outdoor activities."

Videos of the extreme weather have been posted on social media.
