Vietnam weather forecast

With Hanoi enduring yet another heat wave, temperatures throughout the capital are forecast to rise to 39C in the coming days.

Temperatures are therefore forecast to range between 34 and 37C in northern localities, increasing to between 35 and 38C from Thanh Hoa province to Phu Yen province.

With humidity levels expected to remain fairly low at between 50 percent and 60 percent, temperatures are anticipated to peak from 11am to 4pm each day, with highs of over 35C.

Beginning from July 8, the hot spell is predicted to increase its intensity from Thanh Hoa to Quang Tri provinces, with temperature set to reach between 37 and 40C. Indeed, some locations will even see temperatures exceed 40C.

Elsewhere northern regions, including mountainous areas, are to be hit by similarly scorching temperatures on July 9, with the highest level ranging between 36 and 39C.
