NDO – The northern region and Thanh Hoa province will turn cold, with lowest temperatures under 18 degrees Celsius in some places in northern mountainous areas, from the night of October 13 to October 15.

According to the National Centre for Hydro-Meteorological Forecasting, a cold air front is moving southwards on October 13 and is forecast to affect north-eastern provinces and then north-western localities and some places in the north central region from October 14.

Due to the effects of the enhanced cold air combined with the circulation of storm no.8, the northern region to Quang Tri province will suffer heavy rains. In particular, localities from Thanh Hoa to Quang Binh province will face very heavy rains.

From this afternoon to October 15, the capital city of Hanoi is expected to see moderate to heavy rains and a wave of cold air with lowest temperatures ranging from 20-22 degrees Celsius. The cold air is warned to be stronger from October 16.
