The northeast monsoon would befall northern Vietnam before hitting north-central regions starting Thursday, bringing heavy rains and lowering temperatures.


Hanoi temperatures reached 31 degrees Celsius at around 1 p.m. Wednesday, while areas over 1,500 meters above sea level like Sa Pa in Lao Cai reached 20 degrees, about 5-10 degrees higher than the previous weekends.


But the incoming monsoon starting Thursday is expected to befall northern mountainous regions and continue down below, bringing heavy rains, according to the National Center for Hydro-Meteorological Forecasting. Temperatures would be lowered, with Hanoi potentially reaching 18 degrees on Thursday and Friday, before rising slowly towards Sunday, up to 23 degrees, according to U.S. weather forecast service AccuWeather.
