However, relief is likely to come early next week in the form of an inter-tropical convergence zone – a band of rain clouds – bringing showers and occasional thunderstorms.
Meanwhile, a tropical low pressure system has appeared in the Philippines, east of Luzon Island, warns the National Centre for Hydro-Meteorological Forecasting.
Wind speeds of 50-61kmh have already been recorded near the eye of the storm.
The tropical low-pressure system is forecast to bring heavy rain and thunderstorms to the east part of the East Sea.
It may also cause rough seas along the coast from the south central province of Binh Thuan to the southern province Ca Mau. – VNS
