Rainstorms are forecast to lash Vietnam’s northern region until next Tuesday, while the Central Highlands and southern regions will experience moderate to heavy rains till Saturday due to a low-pressure area in the Gulf of Tonkin, according to the national weather center.

The low-pressure system in the north of the East Vietnam Sea, coupled with poor air circulation, will cause showers and thunderstorms.

The northern region will face rainfall reaching up to 100 millimeters on Friday and Saturday.

Downpours with precipitation ranging from 30 to 80 millimeters will hit many Central Highlands and southern localities on Saturday afternoon and evening.

“Torrential rains might lead to flash flooding and landslides in the mountainous north and inundation in low-lying areas,” according to the national weather center.

Bach Long Vi, or ‘White Dragon's Tail,’ an island district about 130 kilometers off the northern coastal city of Hai Phong, faced strong winds on Friday.

The waters off the coastal provinces from Quang Tri to Phu Yen were hit by downpours, thunderstorms, and gusts the same day.

The weather center also warned fishing boats against strong winds and high waves.
