Downpours are in the forecast across southern Vietnam over the next days due to the influence of a southwest monsoon.

Due to the effect of the southwest monsoon, medium to heavy rains are expected to hit large areas across the region from Monday to Wednesday, according to the southern hydro-meteorological forecasting.

The average rainfall will be 50 to 120 millimeters in southeast localities, including Ho Chi Minh City, and 50 to 130 millimeters in the Mekong Delta.

The downpours will be accompanied by occasional thunderstorms, gusts, and hail.

The weather condition will pose a high risk of flooding in low-lying areas.

As of Monday morning, clouds had already formed and caused rains in many locations throughout southern Vietnam.

Meanwhile, rains in northern provinces were forecast to decrease in intensity starting Monday.

The weather condition in the region had been affected by a cold spell over the past days.

North-central and central localities will also record a drop in precipitation from Monday night.
