Rain to lash northern, central Vietnam; dissipate in south this week

Rain to lash northern, central Vietnam; dissipate in south this week

Monday, June 06, 2016, 16:56 GMT+7

Rainy spells are expected to envelop provinces in northern and central Vietnam, before gradually declining in the southern region this week, a local weather specialist has forecast.

Due to the influence of a low pressure system in the west of the country, accompanied by converging winds, the northern provinces will experience rainfall and squalls by midweek, Le Thi Xuan Lan, a meteorologist based in Ho Chi Minh City, said.

The northern region will then see a gradual increase in rain intensity until the weekend, with downpours predicted to hit mountainous areas.

Although likely to be exposed to heat, with highs of between 35 and 37 degrees Celsius, the climate expert said that after the first few days of the week central areas will be cooled off by evening drizzles, forecasting strong gusts to lash some places in the evening.

As southwesterly winds grow in strength, shower squalls will form in provinces in the Central Highlands and southern region in the evening and overnight, with thunderstorms and cyclones predicted, Lan said, noting that some areas in southeastern regions will still remain hot, with temperatures around 35-36 degrees Celsius.

The climatic event will dissipate in the southern region by the weekend, the weather pundit concluded.
