A heat wave in the north from the middle of this week, following a week of cool weather, will drive up temperatures in Hanoi to 34 degrees Celsius.

In the last few days the northeastern region has been misty in the morning due to the effects of cold air.

But the northwest was warm due to the impact of a low-pressure area coming from the west.

For the next two days the north will remain cool, but a stronger low-pressure area from April 17- 18 would mean rising temperatures all over the north, according to the National Center for Hydro-Meteorological Center.

U.S. weather forecast service AccuWeather expected temperatures in Hanoi to be 26-32 degrees rising to a high of 34 degrees starting Thursday.

Six northwestern localities: Lai Chau, Dien Bien, Hoa Binh, Lao Cai, Son La, and Yen Bai will record temperatures of 35-36 degrees.

Central Vietnam will remain hot and sunny especially in its western mountainous areas from Quang Binh to Quang Ngai provinces.

As the low pressure develops along the east on April 17, provinces from Thanh Hoa to Phu Yen will record temperatures of 37-40 degrees.

The southern and Central Highlands regions are in the midst of a heat wave, with daytime temperatures at 35-38 degrees in the former and 34-37 degrees in the latter.

But from the end of the week temperatures in both places will decline gradually.

Over the next month the effects of El Nino will weaken, and temperatures across the country will be 1-2 degrees higher than normal.
