Update: May, 29/2015 - 18:08

HA NOI (VNS) — The National Hydro-meteorological Forecasting Centre yesterday said the country's northern and central regions will continue to experience dry and hot weather through Sunday at least.

Temperatures in major cities like Ha Noi, Hue and Da Nang will remain high in the coming days, with the mercury reaching 39-43 degree Celsius, the centre said.
