The rainy season in southern Vietnam is expected to end by mid-December, according to the southern hydro-meteorological station.

From December 7 to 15, the rainy season in most southern provinces is forecast to come to an end and to be replaced by the dry season.

In provinces such as Ca Mau, Kien Giang, Bac Lieu, and An Giang, the rainy season will end between December 15 and 25.

This year’s rainy season ends about 20 days to one month later than the average of previous years, said Le Dinh Quyet, an official from the southern hydro-meteorological station.

After entering the dry season, the southern provinces will still record unseasonal rains, especially during the period before the 2023 Lunar New Year, which falls on January 22.

Meanwhile, the cold spell in northern Vietnam will continue to strengthen and influence the weather conditions in the region in the second half of December and early January, the National Center for Hydro-meteorological Forecasting reported.

The strengthening northeast monsoon is forecast to cause rough seas and high waves in the maritime areas from north-central Quang Tri Province to southern Ca Mau Province on Monday.

Residents are advised against fishing or participating in tourism activities in the affected areas.
