Cold weather was recorded in northern Vietnam on Tuesday afternoon due to the effect of a strong cold front, according to the National Center for Hydro-meteorological Forecasting. 

The cold spell was moving toward Vietnam’s northern region as of Tuesday afternoon and began influencing weather conditions in northern provinces by midnight.

The cold snap later expanded its effect on central localities.

Winds of level three moving north-eastwards inland, while winds along the coast escalated to levels 4-5 with gusts of levels 6-7.

From Tuesday to Wednesday, mercury in northern provinces and some localities in the north-central area may fall to 13-15 degrees Celsius, while that in the northern mountainous region can drop to below 13 degrees Celsius.

The lowest temperature along this cold front will be between nine and 12 degrees Celsius in the north and north-central regions, six to nine degrees Celsius in the northern highland region, and between 14 and 17 degrees Celsius from Quang Binh to Thua Thien Hue Provinces.

Some locations in the high mountains will experience temperatures below three degrees Celsius.

The maritime area from north-central Quang Tri Province to central Quang Ngai Province will have rough seas, strong winds of up to levels 6-7, with intermittent gusts of levels 8-9, and waves as high as two to four meters from Tuesday.

From Tuesday noon, northeasterly winds at levels 6-7, with intermittent gusts of levels 8-9, have been blowing over the maritime area from south-central Binh Dinh Province to southernmost Ca Mau Province.

Wave heights will be recorded between three and six meters.
