The temperature in Ho Chi Minh City was measured at 22 degrees Celsius at 7:00 am on Saturday, the lowest since the beginning of the year, according to the National Center for Hydro-meteorological Forecasting. 

Saturday morning’s temperature dropped 0.4 degrees Celsius compared to the previous peak on Thursday.

The low temperature, combined with chilly wind, prompted many commuters in the city to don thick clothing and ride their motorbikes slower than usual.

Le Dinh Quyet, deputy head of the forecasting department at the Southern Center for Hydro-meteorological Forecasting, said that the temperature drop was triggered by the cold air moving southward from the northern region.

Sunny skies without rains are in the forecast for Saturday in the southern region.

The temperature will drop slightly by one to two degrees Celsius during the day.

The lowest temperature will range from 19 to 22 degrees Celsius and below 19 degrees Celsius in some areas in the north of the southeastern region. 

In the Mekong Delta, the lowest temperature will oscillate between 20 and 23 degrees Celsius and stay below 20 degrees Celsius in some places.

In Ho Chi Minh City, it was mildly chilly in the early morning.

Together with low temperatures, the southern region will also experience high tides, with the water level in the downstream area of the Saigon - Dong Nai River hovering at around 1.6 meters in the next few days.

On Saturday early morning , the tide at Phu An station on the Saigon River and Nha Be station on the Dong Dien Canal was forecasted to reach its peak at 1.67 meters between 3:00 am and 4:00 am.

The high tide will persist in the afternoon. 

Areas along rivers, canals, and low-lying areas in Nha Be, Binh Chanh, Can Gio Districts, District 7, District 4, District 8, and Thu Duc City will be flooded by 20 to 30 centimeters.
