Another cold snap is forecasted in the northern region from October 9.
According to the National Centre for Hydro-meteorology Forecasting, Hanoi would see rains on the evening of October 9 and the temperature would fall to the lowest level of 20-22 degrees centigrade.
This weather would also affect the northern central and central regions, including Ha Tinh, Quang Binh, Thua Thien-Hue, Quang Nam and Quang Ngai, on October 10-13 with quite strong north-east monsoon wind in coastal areas.
Several northern mountainous localities have been predicted to experience the temperature of 19-22 degrees centigrade, even colder in high mountains.
An expert from the National Centre for Hydro-meteorology Forecasting recently said that this year’s winter would come earlier than usual and be colder than the past five years.
The country is expected to face 2-3 storms from now until the year-end which would mostly occur in central and southern regions.
