A heatwave is forecast to hit north-central Vietnamese provinces starting Tuesday before expanding to northern localities.

The heatwave will affect the localities from Thanh Hoa Province to Thua Thien-Hue Province from Tuesday to Saturday, according to the National Center for Hydro-meteorological Forecasting.

The highest temperatures will be around 35-37 degrees Celsius during this period.

Humidity will be quite low, about 35-50 percent.

The weather pattern poses a high risk of fires and explosions in residential areas as well as bushfires.

It can also cause dehydration, exhaustion, and heatstroke when people are exposed to high temperatures for a long time.

The hot weather will also hit the Red River Delta as well as northern Son La and Hoa Binh Provinces from Wednesday to Friday, with the average highs around 35-37 degrees Celsius.

In central and south-central provinces, the highest temperatures will be 34-36 degrees Celsius, while humidity will be between 45 and 55 percent.

Meanwhile, the ongoing hot weather in southern Vietnam will continue over the next few days.

The average highs will be 35-37 degrees Celsius, and humidity about 40-50 percent.
