Vietnam will continue to be soaked this week, with a low pressure system predicted to bring heavy rain, according to a Ho Chi Minh City-based weather pundit.
The low pressure system, forecast to form over the sea in the south-central part of the country on Tuesday, will turn into a tropical depression, causing climatic disturbances in sea and on land, Le Thi Xuan Lan, a meteorologist, said.
Sea weather conditions in general are expected to worsen this week with rough seas, accompanied by gales and strong squalls, she added, noting that sea areas from Binh Thuan, a south-central province, to Ca Mau, the southernmost province of the country, will be directly affected.
Additionally, due to growing southwesterly winds, provinces in the southern region and Central Highlands will be exposed to evening rainfall this week, with downpours predicted in Kien Giang, An Giang, and Ca Mau Provinces and further north, the weather specialist said.
The weather phenomenon may, however, dissipate by the weekend.
Heavy rain, accompanied by strong squalls, is predicted to lash the northern region over the period, with cyclones forecast, the climate expert said.
Similar weather patterns will also be seen in central areas, Lan said, adding that less rain will fall in south-central provinces, while some locales will remain exposed to baking temperatures of up to 35 or 36 degrees Celsius until mid-week.
