The sky in Ho Chi Minh City was hazy on Thursday morning due to an increase in humidity following a downpour the previous evening, while a shower is forecast to dampen several areas in southern Vietnam on Christmas Eve.
High humidity brought about by the rain on Wednesday evening resulted in a foggy atmosphere early on Thursday morning.
It was difficult to see the city’s skyline during this period, according to the observation of Tuoi Tre (Youth) newspaper reporters.

The phenomenon lasted until 9:00 am the same day.
Rainfall is expected to decrease on Thursday as a cold front and tropical depression, which have caused temperature in the city to dip over the past days, have both weakened, the southern metro-hydrological forecasting elaborated.
However, light showers may still occur in some areas in southern Vietnam on Christmas Eve, it added.
