HA NOI (VNS) — The East Sea will see two big storms or tropical depressions this May, but they aren't likely to affect the mainland, according to the National Centre for Hydro-Meteorological Forecasting.

The centre previously predicted that nine to 10 storms and tropical depressions would hit the sea this year, with four or five likely to make it onto the country's shores.

The rainy season in the Central Highlands and southern regions would start in late May or early June – later than in previous years, the centre said. It also warned localities of dangerous weather in May – a transitional period – such as rainstorms, whirlwinds and hailstorms.

Meanwhile, this month Viet Nam is expected to see a 0.5 to 1 degree rise in average temperature over last May.

Average rainfall this month in the north would be 15 to 30 per cent lower than the traditional average. In the central region, the Central Highlands and the southern regions the number would be 20 to 50 per cent lower, the centre said. — VNS
