A tropical depression in the East Vietnam Sea is expected to worsen the weather condition in southern and central localities, including Ho Chi Minh City, as it moves toward the mainland.

As of 7:00 am on Monday, the tropical depression was 110 kilometers southeast of Song Tu Tay Island in Vietnam's Truong Sa (Spratly) archipelago, the National Center for Hydro-meteorological Forecasting reported.

The average wind speed was measured at 40-50km per hour.

The low-pressure system is forecast to move northwest in the next 24 hours and develop into a storm.

By 7:00 am on Tuesday, the storm will have been 230 kilometers east of the coast between south-central Binh Dinh and Binh Thuan Provinces, packing winds of 60-75km per hour.

In the next 24 to 48 hours, it is expected to continue to travel north and weaken into a tropical depression before making landfall in south-central Vietnam. 

The low-pressure system is likely to worsen the weather in southern and central localities over the next few days.

Rough seas will occur mainly in the central and southern sections of the East Vietnam Sea, as well as along the coast from north-central Quang Tri Province to south-central Khanh Hoa Province.
