Temperatures in northern Vietnam are expected to drop over the weekend due to a cold spell, while localities in the south should brace for a heat wave.

A cold front blowing in from the north is closing in on the Southeast Asian country, the National Center for Hydro-meteorological Forecasting confirmed on Friday morning.

Local temperatures are forecast to drop to between 16 and 19 degrees Celsius in the delta and below 15 degrees Celsius in mountainous areas on Friday evening and night. Light showers are also expected in the northern region.

Cloudy weather is anticipated from the north-central province of Thanh Hoa to the south-central province of Binh Thuan, while temperature highs are forecast at 24 to 28 degrees Celsius.

On January 28 and 29, the cold spell will be intensified, forcing temperatures downward in northern and north-central Vietnam.

In the Central Highlands, highs could reach 31 degrees Celsius.

Meanwhile, sunny weather is expected in southern provinces, with highs forecast at 33 degrees Celsius.

Humidity in the region will be between 55 and 95 percent, with occasional light rains predicted to fall at night.
