The Southern Regional Hydrometeorological Center has estimated rain and cloudy weather to roll into Vietnam’s southern regions, including Ho Chi Minh City, due to a combination of Typhoon Molave making landfall and an approaching active southwest monsoon.

Southern provinces on Wednesday experienced cloudy skies and heavy rains and thunderstorms, along with gusts and whirlwinds.

Temperatures oscillated from 30 to 33 degrees Celsius.

The region will see cloudier skies on Thursday with a high chance of rainfall in the late afternoon, particularly in southeast areas.

Meanwhile, the coastal places from Ba Ria – Vung Tau Province south to Ca Mau Province, and around to Kien Giang Province in the Gulf of Thailand will see heavy rain and thunderstorms due to the effect of a tropical convergence strip connecting with Typhoon Molave.

The southwest monsoon in the maritime area between Ba Ria – Vung Tau and Ca Mau is expected to reach level five to six on the Beaufort scale, leading to rough seas.
