Unusual cold hits northern Vietnam

Feels like the second winter in only six months.

06 Jul 2015 – Sa Pa, the favorite resort town in northern Vietnam, became suddenly cold on Monday morning, with the temperature falling to 12.6 C (54.7 F) at 7 a.m., right in the middle of summer.

Many people had to wear extra coats.

Both locals and tourists in Lao Cai Province said they woke up very surprised. They said it felt cold like winter, but it got warmer later in the day. According to AccuWeather, the minimum temperature will be between 14 and 16 degrees throughout the week.

The temperature in other mountains in the region also dropped to 16 and 17 degrees Celsius. Hai said such low temperature in summer has hardly ever been seen in Sa Pa. The town, the only place in Vietnam to have snow in winter, recorded temperature as low as 14.4 C in July 2005.
