The sky in the capital city of Hanoi is covered with fog and thick layers of stratiform cloud.

It is forecast that the eastern and western parts of the Northern region and the North-Central region will see the cold wave bringing northeast monsoon from tomorrow night.

From February 23, the northern part of the North and some mountainous provinces of Lao Cai, Yen Bai, Hoa Binh and Thanh Hoa will experience bitter temperatures of 12- 17 degrees Celsius.
