People in Ho Chi Minh City are expected to have an enjoyable time celebrating this Christmas Eve as the weather is forecast to be cool and pleasant with a low chance of rain.
According to Le Dinh Quyet, an official from the southern hydro-meteorological station, a cold front from the north has mildly affected the weather pattern in southern Vietnamese provinces.
Temperatures in the region, including Ho Chi Minh City, will decrease to between 20 and 22 degrees Celsius at night and early in the morning over the next days, Quyet elaborated.
However, it will remain hot as usual at noon, with mercury rising to 33-34 degrees Celsius.
Local residents will be able to enjoy Christmas Eve in a cool atmosphere without having to worry about rainfall interfering with their celebration.
Chances are that unseasonal rain will occur in the region on December 26 and 27, followed by the formation of a tropical depression in the East Vietnam Sea, which will potentially evolve into a storm, the weather pundit added.
Meanwhile, the lowest temperature in Hanoi and other localities in the Red River Delta will be at 15-17 degrees Celsius and the average highs at 18-20 degrees Celsius.
Mercury is forecast to drop to below 13 degrees Celsius in mountainous areas.
Showers will also occur in the region at night and early in the morning.
