    The reason can be attributed to the high-pressure area which is seen over China and the ridge which is extending up to Thailand across Vietnam. The cold winds from the north will start blowing towards Vietnam which will result in a reduction of temperature levels.However, the southern parts of Vietnam will continue to witness light to moderate rain and thundershower activity for the 24 to 48 hours.
