A 20-minute heavy off-season rain suddenly poured down in many areas in Ho Chi Minh City afternoon on March 4.
According to Nguyen Minh Giam – deputy director of Centre for Hydro-meteorological Forecast in the southern region, the period of off-season rain is forecast to end in the next few days (3-5 days).
This kind of rain is likely to spread to some southwestern provinces, he added.
During the past days, the out-of-season rain scattered in some southern provinces.

According to Giam, the main cause of the phenomenon is due to a tropical low pressure on the East Sea plus a strengthening cold spell.
Meanwhile, according to the center, the tropical low pressure will slowly head in the southwest at a speed of 5-10km per hr.
The pressure will also cause strong winds on the East Sea, including Truong Sa (Spratly) Islands.
Besides, due to the cold wave, the north weather has dropped by 1 to 2 degrees Celsius.
Seas off Binh Thuan to Da Nang central provinces will also suffer from thunder and rain.
