Recent developments of thermal lows and convective clouds have resulted in unseasonal showers across southern Vietnamese localities, including Ho Chi Minh City, from late on Friday evening until early on Saturday.

There will still be occasional rain in the region throughout Saturday, according to the Southern Center for Hydro-Meteorological Forecasting.

The sunlight will still blanket during the day. However, the sun intensity has softened, slightly dragging down the temperature in the area.

The highest temperature will range between 33 and 35 degrees Celsius in the southeastern region, and 31 and 33 degrees Celsius in the Mekong Delta region. Some places will be hotter than 33 degrees Celsius.

In Ho Chi Minh City, the temperature will hit the maximum of 33 degrees Celsius.

The disturbances may cause unseasonal rain, accompanied by strong winds and thunders, in some provinces such as Dong Nai, Binh Phuoc, and Binh Duong and Ho Chi Minh City on Saturday afternoon. 

There will also be rain in the Mekong Delta provinces of Ca Mau, Hau Giang and Kien Giang.

In general, rain will hit about one-third of the southern area.
