HÀ NỘI — Another cold spell is predicted to hit the north-eastern and north-central provinces and cities on early Tuesday morning, causing a temperature drop to 9-14 degrees Celsius.

Temperatures are expected to fluctuate between 9 and 11 degrees Celsius in mountainous areas, and from 11-14 degrees Celsius in delta localities, including Hà Nội. Hanoians have already started to experience their winter with temperatures of 15-19 degrees Celsius on Monday.

The National Centre for Hydro-meteorological Forecasting warned the cold spell would last for 2-3 days.

The centre also said due to the cold spell, showers were forecast to hit Hà Nội and the north region from Tuesday. At the same time, torrential rain with thunderstorms would continue to hit provinces from Thanh Hóa to Bình Định.

The cold spell would cause rough seas in the northern part of the East Sea, including the Hoàng Sa (Paracel) Archipelago, the centre said. — VNS
