Temperatures in Saigon, normally one of the warmest places in Vietnam, dropped to around 20 degrees Celsius Tuesday morning, giving its residents an early Christmas chill.
Several people could be spotted wearing coats and gloves on the streets. Some clasped and rubbed their hands together at the traffic lights; schoolchildren were reminded by their parents to bring their sweaters and socks to school.
Le Thi Xuan Lan, former deputy head of the forecasting department under the Southern Regional Hydro-Meteorological Center, said morning temperatures in HCMC on Tuesday were at around 20-22 degrees, a significant drop compared to previous days due to the impacts of a cold front coming from the north. The city’s lowest temperatures the past week were 24-25 degrees, according to AccuWeather.
“Until Tet, HCMC would see more cold periods, where temperatures could drop to 18 degrees,” Lan said.
The lowest temperatures recorded in several weather stations in the south were around 19-20 degrees, and one station even recorded 17 degrees, the same as the lowest temperature recorded in January 2022 for the station, according to the center.
Over the past decade, the lowest temperature HCMC has ever recorded was 17 degrees in 2009. But according to the center’s data from 1976, after the war, HCMC’s temperatures once dropped to 16.4 degrees on December 25, 1999.
