Mr. Le Thanh Hai, Deputy General Director of the National Center for Hydrometeorology said, it is expected that the hot weather this year will be more severe, more likely to have strong storms, possibly appear super typhoons.
Regarding the weather situation in 2017, Mr. Le Thanh Hai, Deputy General Director of the National Center for Hydrometeorology said, from March 2017, the phenomenon of El Nino (hot sunshine) is prone. return direction. By the middle of March 2017, new information about the forecast shows that starting from May and June 2017, it is likely that the El Nino phenomenon will return with a probability of up to 60, 70%. Thus, the weather and hydrometeorological phenomena are forecasted to have strong storms and super typhoons.

" Rain in the off season will be much, but the main rainy season is less . Hot weather this year is expected to be hotter than average. These are the first warnings so we will closely monitor developments in El Nino." to be able to make long-term predictions about this year's weather phenomenon, " Hai said.
In the summer of 2017, hot weather will be more severe.
The deputy general director of the National Center for Hydrometeorology said that if El Nino still happened to fall or winter, the dry season of 2017 to 2018 would be drought again, fierce saline intrusion. At this time, it can be said that the spring will be a lot of thunderstorms, this summer is hotter, the storms and tropical depressions are average and a little less than the average of many years, the rain will be short of more, come a little later than average.

In addition, due to the recent impacts of climate change, there have been many extreme weather events, which are unpredictable and rare phenomena."In 2015, there was a record rain in Quang Binh up to 1,500mm in 10 days, that is, within 10 days, the rainfall was equal to 2/3 of the annual rainfall. Along with that, floods in the Central Region , drought early in the Central Highlands, South, South Central, saline intrusion .
All the unpredictable factors are happening and perhaps we have to wait for upcoming extreme events like hot sun, strong storm or super typhoon. So there must be prepared to respond to unpredictable weather developments , " Hai warned.
According to the National Center for Hydrometeorology, if the ENSO phenomenon (due to two phenomena of El Nino / La Nina (ocean) and SO (atmospheric) occurs on the equator), it will change to El Nino status in the second half of the year. 2017, it is likely that storms and tropical depressions in the South China Sea will still appear more than the average for many years (on average, many years are about 12-13 storms / year). However, the number of storms and tropical depressions directly affects the land of our country less. In addition, storm irregularities will increase in the years of El Nino impact.

The rainy season in the North comes later. The beginning of the rainy season in the South and the Central Highlands is likely to arrive early. At the end of the year, under the impact of El Nino, rainfall in the whole country tends to be deficient compared to the average of many years. However, the phenomenon of heavy heavy rain locally in a short period often occurs during the years of impact of El Nino.
There is little possibility of simultaneous submergence in many river basins in the North. The 2017 flood season in the Northern Rivers is likely to arrive later than the average for many years. Flood peaks in rivers and streams are equivalent to 2016, popular at 2-3 levels, some small rivers and streams on the property 3. Flash floods and landslides are likely to occur more than in 2016, especially in the areas Western mountainous region in the North.
The 2017 flood season on the rivers in the Central Highlands and upper Mekong River comes earlier than the average for many years. Flood events on rivers in the Central and Mekong River are in line with many years' rules, flood peaks in rivers in the Central and Central Highlands are equivalent to the average of many years.
The largest flood in the Mekong Delta is at the level of BD2-PC3 (4.0-4.5m). Although there is little chance of particularly large floods, there is a potential risk of flooding faster than usual due to the impact of upstream discharge and the narrow width of the river section.
