Burrr: Cold weather lingers in Ho Chi Minh City

Thursday, December 29, 2016, 11:17 GMT+7

The cold weather blanketing Ho Chi Minh City is expected to linger over the next few days, with temperatures dropping almost 10 degrees Celsius below normal averages.

While local employees sported jackets to work on Thursday morning, parents were busy dressing children in coats on their way to school.

At Tan Son Nhat International Airport, temperatures were recorded at just 23-24 degrees Celsius and winds reached 4-5 meters per second, according to Weather Underground, well below the year-round 30-33 degrees Celsius temperatures typical in the city.

Temperatures in Phuoc Long and Dong Phu, both located in Binh Phuoc Province near Ho Chi Minh City, fell to 19.5-19.6 degrees Celsius over the past two days, according local weather forecasters.

Similar temperatures were also recorded in Long Khanh, Dong Nai Province, another neighbor to Ho Chi Minh City.

On Wednesday, temperatures dropped to 22 degrees Celsius, the coldest since the end of the rainy season. 

The cold is expected to linger over the next few days, with early morning hours expected to be the coldest before the sun begins to warm the city around 10:00 am.
