New cold spell to hit northern region next week

VOV.VN - The northern region of Vietnam is forecast to endure another extreme cold spell due to strike next week, according to the National Centre for Hydro-meteorological Forecasting.

According to the forecast, northern localities will experience spells of rain from January 25 to January 27, with temperatures hovering between 16 – 24 degrees Celsius, before the arrival of a fresh cold spell on January 28.

As the new cold snap hits, temperatures will rapidly plunge by up to six degrees Celsius to a low of 10 degrees Celsius in the plain and less than 10 in the mountainous areas.

The cold spell is scheduled to last through to February 2.

In anticipation of these harsh falls in temperature, citizens living in many northern localities, especially the elderly and children, are advised to don warm clothes in order to protect their health. In addition, local authorities are taking swift measures aimed at helping residents in rural areas to protect their plants and animals.

In Hanoi, the cold spell will likely cause temperatures to tumble to between 11 - 13 degrees Celsius from January 28.
