HCMC – A low-pressure area in the East Sea will likely strengthen into a tropical depression within the next 24 hours, according to the National Center for Hydro-Meteorological Forecasting.

At 10 a.m. on May 30, a low-pressure trough was connected to a low-pressure zone in the northern East Sea. The forecast indicates that this low-pressure area will move slowly northward and potentially intensify into a tropical depression.

The center also reported strong southwest winds of levels 5 to 6, with gusts up to levels 7 to 8, in the East Sea and coastal waters from Danang City to Binh Thuan Province. Wave heights in these regions are expected to reach two to three meters.

The Gulf of Tonkin and coastal provinces from Quang Tri to Ca Mau, Ca Mau to Kien Giang, and the Gulf of Thailand may experience showers and thunderstorms, with possible tornadoes and strong gusts, posing significant risks to vessels operating in these areas.

The forecasting center predicts scattered showers and thunderstorms in northern Vietnam from the night of May 30 to June 7, with heavy rain in certain localities.

Rainfall will mainly occur in the late afternoon and evening. Moderate to heavy rain and thunderstorms are expected in the northern region on Thursday and Friday, with localized heavy rainfall.
