An enhanced cold front is forecast to continue bringing cold weather to northern and north-central Vietnam over the next few days, while the country's central provinces will be lashed by heavy rains until Friday.

As of Sunday afternoon, the cold spell was already affecting most of northern Vietnam as well as some areas in the north-central region, according to the National Center for Hydro-meteorological Forecasting.

Northern and north-central provinces will remain cold until Tuesday, with average lows of around 13-15 degrees Celsius in the Red River Delta and 10-13 degrees Celsius in mountainous areas.

The temperature could drop to below five degrees Celsius on high mountains.

Showers and winds of up to 20km an hour will also be recorded in the northern and north-central regions.

Due to the influence of the enhanced cold snap, rains of 100-180 millimeters will batter the locations from north-central Ha Tinh Province to south-central Khanh Hoa Province from Sunday night to Tuesday.

From Wednesday to Friday, central Vietnam will continue to experience downpours of 100-200 millimeters.

The National Steering Committee for Natural Disaster Prevention and Control suggested that the provinces from Ha Tinh to Khanh Hoa take measures to prevent damage from flooding, especially flash floods and landslides.
