Hanoi (VNA) - Another cold spell is predicted to hit the northeastern and north central provinces and cities on early December 11 morning, causing a temperature drop to 9-14 degrees Celsius.

Temperatures are expected to fluctuate between 9 and 11 degrees Celsius in mountainous areas, and from 11-14 degrees Celsius in delta localities, including Hanoi.

Hanoians have already started to experience their winter with temperatures of 15-19 degrees Celsius on December 9 and 10.

The National Centre for Hydro-meteorological Forecasting warned the cold spell would last for 2-3 days.

The centre also said due to the cold spell, showers were forecast to hit Hanoi and the north region from December 11. At the same time, torrential rain with thunderstorms would continue to hit central provinces from Thanh Hoa to Binh Dinh.

The cold spell would cause rough seas in the northern part of the East Sea, including Hoang Sa (Paracel) archipelago, the centre said.-VNA
