A rare cold spell is expected to influence the weather in northern Vietnam later this week, causing temperatures to drop and rains to fall in the region.

The cold front will affect northern provinces from May 13 to 15, according to the National Center for Hydro-meteorological Forecasting.

Cold snaps such as this are rare in the region at this time of the year, the center continued, adding that it will cause the lowest temperatures to drop to 20 degrees Celsius in the Red River Delta and to below 16 degrees Celsius in mountainous areas.

Heavy downpours accompanied by thunderstorms, hail, and gusts are also in the forecast from May 13.

The weather conditions will pose high risks of landslides and flash floods in mountainous localities and flooding in low-lying areas.

The last time Vietnam recorded a cold spell in May was in 2011, the weather center elaborated.

Regarding the weather on Monday, showers are forecast to dampen northern Vietnam, with temperatures ranging from 22 to 30 degrees Celsius.

The region is still at high risk of landslides, flash floods, and inundation following torrential rains over the weekend.

In southern provinces, it will be partly sunny during the day, while occasional rains will fall in the evening.

The region’s highest temperature will be 32-35 degrees Celsius and lowest will be 24-27 degrees Celsius.
