One or two tropical depressions will likely form in the East Vietnam Sea which may turn into storms and hit mainland Vietnam this month, according to a forecaster from the national weather center.

Nguyen Duc Hoa, deputy head of the Climate Forecasting Department under the National Center for Hydro-Meteorological Forecasting, on Wednesday provided information about weather patterns the country could experience in November.

Possible storms and tropical depressions may cause strong winds and high waves, affecting maritime and fishing activities, he said.

The rainy season is reaching its peak in central Vietnam, bringing heavy rainfall to the region and probably causing flash floods and landslides, Hoa added.

Temperatures in northern, north-central, and central Vietnam will likely remain 1.2 degrees Celsius higher than the average of the past years, while those in south-central, the Central Highlands, and southern Vietnam could be 0.5-1 degree Celsius higher than recent years.

Moderate to heavy rains could continue to lash central Vietnamese localities, while the Central Highlands and southern Vietnam may see showers and thunderstorms mostly in the first half of the month.

Cold spells are forecast to increase in frequency while the north-east monsoon may not gain much strength.

He warned that many parts of the country will likely experience severe weather phenomena, such as thunderstorms, lightning, and hail, that could take a toll on daily activities and production.
