They are forecast to be 22-27 degrees in Hanoi, according to AccuWeather.

Upland areas such as Sa Pa in Lao Cai Province will have temperatures of 21-23 degrees during the day and 14 degrees at night this week.

Some places in the central region are expected to have rainfall of 20-50 millimeters Monday.

This month average temperatures across the country are forecast to be 0.5-1 degree higher than normal, with the northern and central regions likely to be hot and dry.
