Rain in southern Vietnam is forecast to decrease in intensity starting Wednesday, while a cold front will cause downpours in northern provinces until mid-May.

In southern localities, including Ho Chi Minh City, showers will only be recorded in one-third of the region, according to the southern hydro-meteorological station.

It is more likely to rain in the evening, while sunny skies will be in the forecast during the day.

From May 15, the volume of rainfall will increase again in southern Vietnam.

The highest temperatures during this period will be 32-35 degrees Celisus, while the lowest will be 24-26 degrees Celsius.

In northern Vietnam, an ongoing cold front is expected to cause downpours from Wednesday until mid-May, the National Center for Hydro-meteorological Forecasting reported.

The highest rainfall of 150-400 millimeters will be recorded in mountainous provinces.

A lower rain volume, accompanied by thunderstorms and occasional gusts and hail, will lash localities in the Red River Delta.

The weather pattern will pose high risk of flash floods and landslides in mountainous areas and flooding in low-lying locales.

On May 15 and 16, the rainy weather is expected to move toward north-central and central provinces.
