An unusual rain accompanied by strong winds hit Ho Chi Minh City and neighboring provinces on Tuesday evening, the third day of the 2023 lunar year.

The rain was caused by the influence of a cold front in northern Vietnam, according to Le Dinh Quyet, an official from the southern hydro-meteorological station.

The downpour was recorded in two-thirds of the districts of Ho Chi Minh City, with the volume measured at eight to 15 millimeters as of 7:30 pm.

The rain lasted for about 30-50 minutes and resulted in mild flooding in some areas.

Thuan An Station in southern Binh Duong Province recorded a rain volume of up to 67.5 millimeters.

“It hardly rains during the Lunar New Year holiday, and such a high rainfall in Binh Duong is considered quite unusual during the dry season,” Quyet elaborated.

Southern Vietnam is forecast to remain sunny during the day on Wednesday, the weather expert continued, adding that showers will dampen some areas at night.

Temperatures in the region are expected to drop at night and early in the morning.

Residents in low-lying areas should also watch out for inundation on Wednesday as high tide will reach its peak of January.
