The first heatwave facing the north this year has arrived, affecting mostly the northwestern area, with the highest temperature on March 21 reaching 34-36 degrees Celsius, even higher in some other places.

According to the National Centre for Hydro-Meteorological Forecasting (NCHMF), it will be hottest on March 22 when the mercury in Hanoi will hit 36 degrees Celsius. Coupled with low humidity, the heat will remain until the end of March 24, possibly followed by thunderstorms and falling temperatures at weekend.

At the same time, the southeastern region is forecast to continue experiencing hot weather for several days, with temperatures hovering around 35 – 36 degrees Celsius, even higher in specific places.

The meteorological agency said in the second half of March and into April, the frequency of cold waves tends to gradually reduce and the heat will begin to appear, concentrating in the northwest and the central region’s western area. The intensity of the hot weather will then increase and gradually expand to other parts of the north, north-central, and central regions in April and May.

Experts predict that this summer’s heat will be more frequent than in 2022, both in terms of frequency and severity. The average temperature is also higher than that of the previous year.
