According to the National Center for Hydro-Meteorological Forecasting, the intertropical convergence zone with an axis passing through the South Central Coast connects with a low-pressure area in the East Sea moving inland, so there will be moderate rain, heavy rain, downpours, and thunderstorms in the areas from Da Nang City to Binh Thuan Province, the Central Highlands, and the South from September 19 to September 21.

Today (September 19), the high-altitude wind convergence area of up to 5,000m is active in the Northern region.

It is forecasted that, due to the influence of the high-altitude wind convergence area, from September 19 to September 20, there will be scattered showers and thunderstorms in the North, with local moderate and heavy rains. Northern mountainous areas will see moderate, heavy, and violent rains and thunderstorms, with common rainfall of 100-150mm. Especially, the rainfall in Lai Chau, Lao Cai, Yen Bai, Ha Giang, Tuyen Quang, and Cao Bang provinces is up to 200mm. Heavy rains occur mainly in the evening, at night, and in the morning. During thunderstorms, there is a possibility of tornadoes, lightning, hail, and strong winds. There is a risk of flash floods, local landslides in mountainous areas, and local flooding in low-lying urban areas.

During thunderstorms, there is a possibility of tornadoes and strong gusts of wind.

From September 19 to September 21, the low-pressure circulation will cause heavy rains for the provinces from Da Nang to Binh Thuan, the Central Highlands, and the South. There will be moderate rain, heavy rain, heavy downpour, and thunderstorms, with common rainfall of 100-200mm and over 250mm in some places.
