23 out of 25 northern Vietnam localities on Friday saw temperatures below 10 degrees, with 10 localities seeing temperatures below 5 degrees, according to the National Center for Hydro-Meteorological Forecasting. Certain mountainous areas saw temperatures hovering around 3 degrees, including Lao Cai’s Sa Pa, Dien Bien’s Pha Din and Ha Giang’s Dong Van.

In Hanoi, for the first time this winter, the Ba Vi weather station recorded temperatures at 10 degrees, while other stations in Lang, Ha Dong, Son Tay and Hoai Duc saw temperatures at 11 degrees. Actual temperatures outside the stations could be 2-3 degrees lower.

U.S. weather forecast service AccuWeather anticipated Hanoi’s temperatures to be at 9-18 degrees on Friday, before getting warmer by 1-2 degrees in the coming days, and be at around 14-26 degrees by Dec. 28. High-altitude locations like Sa Pa would see the lowest temperatures at 2-8 degrees on Friday, and temperatures would remain at 2-12 degrees in the next three days, before gradually rising to around 14 degrees.

Meteorological agencies said the cold wave would remain in northern Vietnam for at least the next three days. On Christmas’s Eve, temperatures across the north are expected to fall below 13 degrees.
