A low pressure zone has formed off the south central coast and will cause medium to heavy rains in central and southern provinces, the National Hydro Meteorological Forecasting Center said Monday.

On Monday afternoon, the system was centered 10-12 degrees north latitude and 110-112 degrees east longitude, off the coast from Binh Dinh to Binh Thuan provinces.


The national weather bureau said that the low pressure system has led the southwesterly winds to intensify in the southern region. Ho Chi Minh City thus will be cloudy and rainy in the next few days.


Boats on the waters off the southern region should keep watch of thunderstorms and prone tornados.
