Snow has been forecasted to cover some areas in the northern mountainous province of Lao Cai, including Sapa and Y Ty, in this year’s winter.

According to Luu Minh Hai, director of Hydro-Meteorological Forecasting Centre, the temperature of the sea surface across the equatorial Eastern Central Pacific Ocean has continued to be on the fall due to the impact of La Niña. The decrease would be much sharper in the last months of the year and early 2021.
