Low-pressure area brings unseasonal rain to southern Vietnam

Low-pressure area brings unseasonal rain to southern Vietnam

A low-pressure area forming in the southern part of the East Vietnam Sea has suddenly become more active, bringing about unseasonal rain in the south-central and southern regions of Vietnam.

According to the National Center for Hydro-meteorological Forecasting, the low-pressure system was located about 230 kilometers away from Phu Quy Island off the south-central province of Binh Thuan on Saturday, traveling southwestward.

It is forecast to be at about 180 kilometers northeast of Con Dao Island off the southern province of Ba Ria-Vung Tau on Sunday

The depression will cause rough seas along the coastline from the central city of Da Nang to the Mekong Delta province of Ca Mau, with winds blowing between 39 and 61km per hour.

Under the combined effects of the low pressure area and a cold front, unseasonal rain will dampen localities in the south-central and southern regions, including Ho Chi Minh City, from January 14 to 16.

Showers starting in the southern metropolis since Saturday evening have worried growers of flowers and plants, especially those set to be sold prior to the Lunar New Year (Tet).

According to Ha, owner of a yellow apricot flower garden in Thu Duc District, the weather conditions may cause the blossoms not to bloom in time for the coming Tet holiday.

The Lunar New Year is due on January 28, with local residents often decorating their houses with traditional flowers, namely the yellow apricot for people in the south and the peach blossom for those in the northern region.
