According to information given by the National Centre for Hydro-meteorological Forecasting (NCHMF), due to the influence of the cold spell, both northern and northern central regions will see temperatures plummet from the night of October 13.
It is forecast that temperatures might drop below 18 degrees Celsius in mountainous areas, while the lowest temperatures in other areas will be between 19 and 20 degrees Celsius.
Furthermore, the cold wave might bring additional rain to the northern region, with the area from Thanh Hoa to Quang Binh provinces likely to experience heavy rain between October 13 and October 15.
Temperatures in the capital will also start to dip from October 15, with the cold being exacerbated by drizzly weather conditions the following day.
Local residents are therefore advised to keep warm in order to protect their health in the cold weather, particularly those in mountainous areas.
