The baking weather will continue while less unseasonal rains than in the past weekend will take place in the southern Vietnamese region, according to the Southern Center for Hydro-Meteorological Forecasting.

It rained in Ho Chi Minh City again on Sunday afternoon.

The rain lasted for 30 minutes, in several phases, with rainfall ranging between 20mm and 50mm, helping mitigate the unpleasant heat.

The current cold air continues to diffuse southward while the east wind disturbances weaken, resulting in less rain, according to Le Dinh Quyet, deputy head of the Southern Center for Hydro-Meteorological Forecasting.

The temperature is forecast to increase slightly in the southeastern localities from Monday to the range of 34-36 degrees Celsius, and over 36 degrees Celsius in some places.

In the southeast, it will rise to about 33-35 degrees Celsius, while some places in the Mekong Delta area will experience temperatures of more than 35 degrees Celsius.

In the following days, the heat will linger in the southern region.

Although rain may occur in some locations, the UV index in the afternoons there will be at a very high risk of harm, especially in the next three days, with people needing to pay attention to protecting their skin.

In the northern region of the country, heavy rain is in the forecast for mountainous areas and is likely to last until Tuesday, according to the National Center for Hydro-Meteorological Forecasting.

In provinces such as Cao Bang, Bac Kan, Lang Son, Thai Nguyen, Tuyen Quang, and Ha Giang, moderate to heavy rains will take place with total precipitation of 40-80mm per 24 hours and over 100mm per 24 hours in some places.

In Lai Chau, Dien Bien, Lao Cai, and Ha Giang, heavy rains will bring a rainfall of 100-150mm per 24 hours. 

During the rains, there is a possibility of whirlwinds, lightning, hail, and strong winds.

The low-lying areas in the provinces of Lai Chau, Son La, Dien Bien, Lao Cai, Yen Bai, Ha Giang, Tuyen Quang, Phu Tho, Thai Nguyen, and Bac Kan also face a risk of landslides and flooding.
