It is forecast to continue pouring in southern Vietnam in the first half of this week due to the combined effect of a tropical convergence strip and a low-pressure zone.

Medium to heavy rain is expected to lash localities in the southern region, including Ho Chi Minh City, from September 16 to 18, said Le Dinh Quyet, an official from the southern weather forecast center.

Average rainfall will be at between 20 and 40 millimeters per 24 hours, Quyet elaborated.

On September 19 and 20, showers will occur mainly in the evening, he continued, adding that rain in the region will diminish from September 21.

The similar weather pattern is also in the forecast in the Central Highlands and the south-central provinces of Ninh Thuan, Binh Thuan, and Khanh Hoa in the same period.

Dak Nong and Lam Dong Provinces in the Central Highlands will be under high risks of inundation, flashfloods, and landslides

Rough seas, strong gusts, and thunderstorms are expected to occur along the coast from Binh Thuan Province to southern Ca Mau Province.

According to the National Center for Hydro-meteorological Forecasting, rain will also dampen northern and north-central provinces in the first half of this week.

Downpours will increase in intensity across the north-central region during the rest of the week.
