The unseasonal rains that have been dampening southern Vietnam over the past few days are considered unusual, according to Le Dinh Quyet, an official from the southern hydro-meteorological station.

Large-scale unseasonal rains were recorded in southern localities on Monday afternoon.

The rain volume was measured at 29.4 millimeters in Kien Giang Province, 23.6 millimeters in Ho Chi Minh City, 17.8 millimeters in Ca Mau Province, and five to 17 millimeters in other locations.

The weather pattern in southern Vietnam has been quite strange over the past few days, Quyet elaborated, adding that it has been cloudy for many consecutive days, foggy in the morning, and rainy in the morning and at night.

"Unseasonal rains rarely occur during such time of the day and do not repeat for consecutive days,” the weather official continued.

“Rains during the dry season usually fall in the afternoon or evening and do not linger for many days.”

Similar rains accompanied by occasional thunderstorms are forecast to continue in the southern region on Tuesday.

The average temperatures will range from 21 to 30 degrees Celsius.

Meanwhile, it will remain cold and partly sunny in northern provinces on Tuesday, the National Center for Hydro-meteorological Forecasting reported.

Showers will hit some coastal areas at night and early in the morning.

Average temperatures in the region will range from 12 to 23 degrees Celsius.
