Scorching heat to dwindle in northern, central Vietnam

Scorching heat to dwindle in northern, central Vietnam

Saturday, June 04, 2016, 09:34 GMT+7

A trough moving southward from northern Vietnam is expected to put an end to the region’s current scorching weather on Saturday, the country’s national forecasting agency said on Friday.

Overall temperature in the northern region is forecast to drop to 33-35 degrees Celsius, from a previous average of 37 degrees Celsius, the National Center for Hydro-Meteorological Forecasting (NCHMF) predicted.

Earlier this week, outdoor temperatures were recorded at 40 degrees Celsius at noon in some places.

Sizzling climatic conditions in the north will be replaced with rainy spells, whereas central localities will experience a slight drop in temperature, the center said.

The trough’s impact is attributed to form rain and squalls in northeastern locales from Saturday’s afternoon to Sunday, with an average rainfall of 20-50 millimeters, and 80 millimeters in some areas. Hanoi will be exposed to 10-30 millimeters of rainfall.

Extreme climatic events like cyclones and hailstorms are also predicted in the northern region over the Saturday-Sunday period, according to the NCHMF.

However, baking atmosphere will still linger on coastal provinces in north-central Vietnam until Sunday, with highs at 35-38 degrees Celsius, the weather forecasting center said.

In the meantime, south-central provinces and cities from Da Nang City to Ninh Thuan Province will experience a slight temperature drop from Sunday..
