Although the weather in Vietnam is extremely variable, it’s attainable to distinguish two predominant seasons: a dry season from November to May, and rainy season from June to October. However, this generalization disguises considerable variations in different aspects of the weather all through the country.

 

For instance, within the south of Vietnam the difference in temperature between the 2 seasons is a hardly noticeable three°C with little variation. Within the north, nonetheless, the difference averages 12°C but can range from beneath 10°C in winter to a summer extreme around 40°C.

 

The summer time months: from April to October.

 

Apart from the Central Highlands and mountain areas, temperatures are uniformly hot throughout the nation during the summer months, and humidity is high.

 

The winds of the south-western monsoon blow across the nation bringing warm, humid weather to many of the country, and intermittent heavy rain from July to the end of August.

 

The principle exception to this general pattern is the southern Central area. From April to October, the south-western monsoon deposits its rain on the Truong Son Mountains. In consequence, the sheltered central coastal lowlands from about Nha Trang to Nghe and get pleasure from warm, dry weather all through the summer.

 

During the rest of the yr, the Central Highlands stay dry – severe droughts usually occur in the spring.

 

The winter months: from November to March.

 

Though the temperature cools somewhat, the South is hot and dry during the winter.

 

Alongside the Central Coast, autumn brings intermittent, strong on-shore winter monsoon winds from the northeast. These can generate powerful waves and an undertow making swimming off some beaches dangerous at times. From October to December, the winds convey heavy rain, and often severe flooding, to the central coastal area. The weather steadily improves from January onwards.

 

The north and the Crimson River Delta are sheltered by the landmass of China. Because of this, they miss the heavy rain – October, November and December are normally dry and comfortable. However, throughout January, the ‘small rains’ appear – chilly, clammy, depressing weather that may final from December to April, however primarily occurs during late January and February.

 

Within the northern mountain areas, temperatures are generally cooler in both summer season and winter. Sometimes, the area around Mt. Fansipan experiences winter snowfalls.

 

Your vacation weather

The following table is a rough guide to the best and worst months for visiting various locations in Vietnam, but whether or not it applies to your explicit go to rely upon what you propose to do. For example, if you happen to want to go diving at Nha Trang, October, November and most of December is useless as a result of the rain turns the sea right into a murky soup at that time. Nevertheless, if you happen to want to visit the Cham monuments, it’s only a matter of dodging the showers.

 

Hue is moist for a lot of the yr but it’s not more than an inconvenience, even through the wet season.
