A cold spell in combination with tropical turbulences on the East Vietnam Sea may bring heavy rains to the central provinces from Thanh Hoa Province to Quang Nam Province.
The weather will likely turn colder as four to six cold air masses may hit the country, said the National Center for Hydro-meteorological Forecasting.
The cold spell together with tropical turbulences on the East Vietnam Sea may cause torrential rains in the central localities from Thanh Hoa to Quang Nam.
Besides, some two to three tropical cyclones may form on the sea during the month, the center said.
From October 1 to 10, the cold spell will trigger rain and lower temperatures in northern and central provinces.
The regions are expected to see moderate to heavy rain from October 6 to 10.
During the five days, the total rainfalls may reach 100-200 millimeters.
Meanwhile, the Central Highlands and southern Vietnam are expected to experience rain at dusk and at night. Rain will intensify from October 8 to 10.
The country’s temperature will be 0.5 to 1 degree Celsius higher than the average level in many previous years.
From October 11 to 20, moderate to heavy rain may strike the central and northern sections of central Vietnam, causing rive water levels to rise.
The areas, together with the Central Highlands and southern Vietnam, will see more rain than previous years while northern Vietnam will have milder rain.
The rainfall in south-central Vietnam is expected to be equivalent to the average in many preceding years.
From October 21 to 31, the central and northern sections of central Vietnam are likely to suffer moderate to heavy rains in many days, with temperatures dropping 0.5 degrees Celsius against previous years.
