After seeing off-season rains last week, Vietnam's southern provinces will settle in much more comfortable days ahead with cool weather from a strengthened cold front.
A mild cold front will reach southern Vietnam and tail off before the respective arrival of two intense cold spells on January 28 and February 1, said Le Dinh Quyet, deputy head of forecasting at the Southern Region Hydro-Meteorological Center.
Provinces in the region will be stroked by the southern edge of these cold fronts, which brings out cooler mecury and less rain compared to last week, as well as sunlight and chances of fog in the morning.
Cold weather will escalate from Friday morning, preceded by chances of heavy rain and thunderstorms on Thursday afternoon.
Daytime mercury varies between 30 and 33 degrees Celsius, while temperature during the night ranges between 22 and 24 degrees Celsius.
Starting Friday, temperatures will drop to as low as 19-22 degrees Celsius, or even lower than 19 degrees Celsius in the northern parts of southeastern Vietnam.
