The country's northern and north-central provinces are poised to endure a period of cold weather from the evening of November 27, bringing with it spells of rain coupled with falling temperatures.
According to the National Centre for Hydro-meteorological Forecasting, the cold front, which is moving fast from China, affected northern mountainous provinces of Vietnam in the morning and is expected to arrive in other northern and north-central provinces in the evening.
As the front is moving further inland, the temperature will fall quickly to a low of 13 degrees Celsius, even below 10 degrees Celsius in mountainous localities, the weather forecast authority said.
In addition, central and south-central provinces are forecast to experience periods of heavy rainfall between November 28 and December 1.
It is anticipated that the average amount of rainfall will be between 50mm and 100mm per day, with some places even set to endure over 112mm of rainfall, therefore raising the prospect of flashfloods and landslides hitting mountainous localities.
Elsewhere, the cold spell will also cause temperatures in Hanoi capital to tumble to 16-19 degrees Celsius from the evening of November 27.vOv
