Vietnam's northern region is forecast to endure the most extreme cold snap since the beginning of the year from November 7, according to the National Centre for Hydro-meteorological Forecasting.


Drizzles will be constant across the northern region until November 3 before temperatures rise to 25 degrees Celsius between November 4 and November 6.

A gusty northeast wind will therefore affect the country from November 7 and November 8, switching the northern and northcentral regions to a widespread cold front, according to Nguyen Van Huong, head of the weather forecast division under the National Centre for Hydro-meteorological Forecasting.

During the course of these two days, the average temperature in Hanoi and many other northern localities will drop to below 20 degrees Celsius.

Most notably, this period will be a dry cold spell, with temperatures staying low at night and in the early morning, but getting warmer during the afternoon in both northern and northcentral regions.
