Temperatures in southern Vietnam are increasing as the region is entering the dry season, whilst weather in northern provinces is also forecast to warm up this week.

According to the National Center for Hydro-meteorological Forecasting, temperatures in Ho Chi Minh City will reach 36 degrees Celsius on Monday.

The mercury in the southern metropolis is expected to decrease to between 33 and 34 degrees Celsius in the following days.

According to Le Thi Xuan Lan, a Ho Chi Minh City-based weather pundit, southern Vietnam is entering the peak period of the dry season.

A cold front during this period will not be strong enough to decrease temperatures within the region, Lan continued.

In March and April, temperatures in southern localities may reach up to 38 degrees Celsius, she stated.

It may feel hotter in some areas due to the effect of urbanization.

Meanwhile, the temperatures in northern Vietnam are forecast to increase from February 26to March 4.

The average temperature in Hanoi during this time period will be between 24 and 29 degrees Celsius, the forecast center reported, adding that it would remain cold at night and in the early morning.

A similar weather pattern will also occur in the north-central region.
