A cold snap is expected to bring rain and cold weather to northern Vietnam over the next few days, the National Center for Hydro-meteorological Forecasting reported.

The cold front is forecast to begin affecting weather conditions in northern provinces early on Saturday morning and intensifying around Sunday night.

Temperatures in the region will decrease starting Saturday night and further drop between Sunday and Tuesday.

The average lows will be 16 to 19 degrees Celsius in the Red River Delta and 13 to 16 degrees Celsius in mountainous areas.

In north-central Vietnam, temperatures will also fall to about 17 to 20 degrees Celsius.

From Friday night to Monday, rainfall of 80 to 150 millimeters will dampen mountainous localities.

In the Red River Delta, rains will be lower in intensity, with precipitation of 40 to 80 millimeters.

Due to the effect of a trough, rains of 50 to 100 millimeters are expected to fall in the Central Highlands, south-central, and southern regions on Friday and Saturday afternoon and evening.

There will be chances of strong gusts, thunderstorms, and hail.

The weather condition will also pose risks of landslides and flash floods in mountainous localities and inundation in low-lying areas.
