Tropical Storm Nesat entered the East Vietnam Sea late on Sunday afternoon and is forecast to pick up strength over the next couple of days.

As of 7:00 am on Monday, Storm Nesat, the sixth to hit Vietnam this year, was located 600 kilometers northeast of the country's Hoang Sa (Paracel) archipelago, according to the National Center for Hydro-meteorological Forecasting.

The average wind speed was 103-133km per hour and gusts up to 166km an hour.

The storm is expected to travel southwest over the next 24 hours and pick up strength.

By 7:00 am on Tuesday, Nesat will be situated 270 kilometers northeast of Hoang Sa, unleashing winds of 118-149km per hour.

On Wednesday morning, the wind speed will decrease slightly to between 103 and 133km per hour.

Over the next 48 to 72 hours, the storm will head west and further weaken as it interacts with a cold front.

The average wind speed will drop to about 62-88km per hour.

Storm Nesat will be downgraded to a tropical depression in the next 72-96 hours.

Due to the influence of the storm, rough seas, strong winds, and rainstorms will occur in the northern part of the East Vietnam Sea in the next few days.

The maritime area will also record waves as high as five to ten meters.
