National Hydro-Meteorological Forecasting CenterThe depression, which was located north off Hoang Sa (Paracel) archipelago yesterday afternoon, is moving west-northwest toward the Gulf of Tonkin and will likely become stronger, the center said.

At 1:00 pm on Thursday, the tropical low pressure system may close in on the southeastern area of the Gulf of Tonkin.

Due to the depression, the northern area of the East Vietnam Sea, including Truong Sa (Spratly) archipelago, will experience rough seas, rainstorms, and strong winds of up to 74 kph.

Meanwhile, the Gulf of Tonkin will have showers and thunderstorms and whirlwinds will possibly batter the sea area.

Northern Vietnamese provinces will also suffer from medium to heavy rains, together with strong squalls.

In some mountainous areas, flashfloods and landslides will likely occur, so local authorities should take preventive measures, the center warned.   

The lowest and highest temperatures in the northern region on Thursday will be 22 and 31 degrees Celsius, the center said.

The central region from Da Nang City to Binh Thuan Province will have scattered showers and thunderstorms, while the Central Highlands will undergo heavy rains, which can cause flashfloods and landslides.     

Rains and thunderstorms will also be seen in many southern provinces on Thursday, with the lowest and highest temperatures there to be 24 and 32 degrees Celsius.
