HÀ NỘI — Not only benefiting from the scattered rain in the early afternoon, Hà Nội is forecast to receive heavy rain in the evening, according to the National Centre for Hydro-Meteorological Forecasting (NCHMF).
The rain in the beginning of the afternoon was not enough to calm down the heat. The base temperature in Hà Nội remains at 37 degrees Celsius.
According to the NCHMF, late this afternoon, the northern province and north central province of Thanh Hóa will be showered with heavy rain, along with strong winds and the chance of tornado, flash flooding and landslides.
Other provinces in the South will have rainy weather as well.
The northern region’s temperature will drop by 5 to 7 degrees Celsius, to approximately 30 degrees Celsius, putting an end to the extremely hot weather caused by the heat wave over the last few days.
The heat wave has raised the temperature above 40 degrees Celsius in northern and central provinces. The air was also extremely hot and dry, creating problems for health and agriculture production and increasing power consumption. — VNS.
