The arrival of a cold front dragged the temperature in Ho Chi Minh City below 20 degrees Celsius on Wednesday morning, which proves the right time for city dwellers to dust off their winter wardrobe.

The impact of the chilly weather could immediately be seen on the streets this Wednesday morning, as city residents left home under layers of warm clothing and scarves.

“Temperature drops and chilly gusts are blowing this morning," said Truong Quang Danh from Binh Tan District.

"It makes me shiver while driving, but I like this weather.

"It feels as if I were in Da Lat.”

The norm is around 30 degrees Celsius in tropical Vietnam.

The abrupt atmosphere change after days of heat gave rise to health concerns for vulnerable portions of the community, such as children, the elderly, and people who are ill.

The mild cold spell started affecting southern provinces on Tuesday as temperatures dropped 2-3 degrees Celsius around noon and plummeted further at night.

By Wednesday morning, temperatures throughout the region had fluctuated between 17 and 19 degrees Celsius, with several southeast locales reporting 17 degrees or lower.

During the next few days, chances of drizzling mist are anticipated in several locales, while the weather is expected to be dry, cool, and mildly sunny throughout the region.

Temperatures will hover around 28-31 Celsius degrees.
