Second cold front looms over northern provinces

Vietnam
Northern provinces will suffer another spell of cold weather and unseasonal rain throughout the next few days, according to a weather forecast by the Central Hydrometeorological Center.

Cold weather Tuesday spread to most provinces in the north-east of Vietnam, as well as Thanh Hoa Province.

The Gulf of Tonkin saw winds blowing at speeds of over 60 kph, causing rough seas.

The center forecast that the cold front will spread to other areas in the northwestern and central regions.

Torrential rain will shatter northern and central coastal beaches and bring winds running up to 50 kph.

According to the center, the cold front will linger in the northern region for three days before tapering off.

During a previous cold front, which lasted 38 days and ended in mid-February, around 182,500 hectares of rice paddies were damaged and 8,200 head of cattle died.
