Ferocious storm east of Philippines to keep northern Vietnam wet this week

Monday, July 04, 2016, 12:05 GMT+7

A storm recently formed in the eastern waters of the Philippines is expected to drench northern Vietnam this week, with strong winds and dangerous weather predicted.

Le Thi Xuan Lan, a Ho Chi Minh City-based climate specialist, warned that despite approaching Taiwan, the phenomenon will exert tremendous impact on the northern provinces of Vietnam.

Coinciding with a convergence of winds in the north which has delivered rain since the previous weekend, the storm will keep northern areas saturated by downpours and cyclones for the first four to five days this week, with landslides and rough seas also predicted, Lan said.

The Central Highlands and southern region will experience mild sunshine for the first two days of the week, with highs of between 32 and 35 degrees Celsius accompanied by rain in some places, she forecast.

The meteorologist also added that rain is likely to increase in intensity in the south from midweek onwards, especially in coastal areas due to the growing southwesterly winds.
