The national weather forecast center said temperatures from in the northern region will increase significantly from Friday, ending the cold streak from early this month.
Hanoi’s daytime temperature will peak at 26 degrees Celsius on Friday, compared to 20 degrees the previous day, while some places in the northwestern region can be as hot as 30 degrees, the center said.
But the region will receive a heavy cold spell from Sunday night when temperatures in the northern highlands will drop to between 7 and 10 degrees and the plain areas to 12-15 degrees.
Hanoi will still be warm during daytime Sunday but temperature will drop from the evening to around 12 degrees, with a little drizzle, the center said.
The temperatures will maintain for the following week, it said.
Ho Chi Minh City and nearby provinces meanwhile will be very hot in the coming days, with common temperatures at around 35 or 36 degrees.
