Temperatures in Ho Chi Minh City and other southern Vietnam provinces dropped early on Wednesday morning due to a cold spell and the circulation of Storm Etau.

The lowest temperatures in the southern metropolis were at 22-23 degrees Celsius and remained at 24 degrees Celsius, according to the southern hydro-meteorological center.

It was cloudy and breezy, and many commuters had to wear warm clothing such as jackets, scarves, and gloves, according to the observation of Tuoi Tre (Youth) newspaper reporters.

Thirty degrees is the norm in tropical Vietnam.

The lowest temperatures in southern Binh Phuoc, Dong Nai, and Tay Ninh Provinces also plunged to 20-21 degrees Celsius early on Wednesday morning.

Average temperatures in the Mekong Delta also decreased slightly.

The chilly weather was the result of a cold front and the circulation of Storm Etau.

Another storm, Vamco, was located 300 kilometers southeast of the Philippines’ Luzon Island, with wind speeds of up to 115-135km per hour, as of 7:00 am on Wednesday.

It will travel west and enter the East Vietnam Sea in the next 24 hours, becoming the country’s 13th storm this year, according to the National Center for Hydro-meteorological Forecasting.
