Favorable weather conditions forecast across Vietnam during Tet

Wednesday, February 07, 2018, 10:59 GMT+7

People in Vietnam can expect to celebrate the upcoming Lunar New Year festival without having to worry about extreme weather patterns, as favorable weather conditions have been forecast during this period.

Weather conditions during the holiday are expected to be generally good across Vietnam and will be suitable for all types of festive activities, said Dr. Hoang Phuc Lam, an official of the National Center for Hydro-meteorological Forecasting.

However, there will be certain changes to the weather in different regions, such as an enhanced cold front in the north and an unseasonal shower in the south, Lam continued.

The Lunar New Year begins on February 16, but preparations and celebrations often occur during the week before and after the date in Vietnam.

According to the forecast, northern provinces will continue to be affected by a weakening cold snap on Wednesday and Thursday, before warming up on Friday.

A new cold snap is anticipated to hit the region on the weekend, causing light rainfall and low temperatures.

The cool spell will weaken and travel eastward at the beginning of next week, with temperatures rising.

A similar weather pattern is forecast in north-central, central, and south-central Vietnam from February 7 to 12.

Occasional rain is expected during the period.

From February 13, the chance of rainfall is low and the days will be sunny.

Meanwhile, sunny days and clear skies will be the prominent metrological features in southern Vietnam and the Central Highlands from February 7 to 21.

From Wednesday to Friday, localities in the area will remain chilly during the evening and early morning.

Showers and strong winds are anticipated to occur in coastal provinces between February 14 and 16.

The National Center for Hydro-meteorological Forecasting will provide a more detailed update on Friday.
