Rain is forecast to continue dampening southern Vietnam in the next few days due to the influence of a tropical depression in the East Vietnam Sea and Storm Jangmi currently near the Philippines.

The tropical storm and depression are traveling westward and will not have a direct effect on the weather conditions on Vietnam’s mainland.

However, they are pulling the southwest monsoon toward them, according to Le Thi Xuan Lan, a weather pundit based in southern Vietnam.

This monsoon will result in downpours in southern localities, including Ho Chi Minh City, over the next few days, Lan elaborated.

Rainfall can start early in the morning and recur at any other time during the day, the expert stated, adding that the downpours will tend to intensify in the evening.

The circulation of Storm Jangmi and the tropical depression will also trigger bad weather in the maritime areas near Vietnam's Hoang Sa (Paracel) and Truong Sa (Spratly) archipelagos in the East Vietnam Sea.

Local fishermen are advised to take shelter during this period.

According to the National Center for Hydro-meteorological Forecasting, the tropical depression is likely to strengthen into a storm in the next 24 hours.

The storm will be located in the maritime area off China’s Fujian Province as of 7:00 am on Tuesday, packing winds at 60-75 kilometers per hour and gusts at up to 100km an hour.
