In Hanoi, rain accompanied by strong gusts and lightning is in the forecast from Wednesday to Saturday this week.

Average temperatures in the capital will range from 25 to 31 degrees Celsius on Wednesday.

Meanwhile, a strengthened monsoon is also expected to bring downpours, thunderstorms, and strong winds to the Central Highlands and southern Vietnam, including Ho Chi Minh City, from Wednesday to Friday.

Average temperatures will range from 23 to 32 degrees Celsiusin the southern metropolis on Wednesday.
