In North Vietnam, September is autumn in North Vietnam during which there are possible typhoons and tropical depressions. There are chances that it rains a few days during the time of a tropical storms or tropical depressions.

 At the beginning of September 2018 there was a flash flood at Phong Tho (Lai Chau in the Northwest of Vietnam). In mid of September, there were Typhoon Barijat (No.5) and Super Typhoon Khangkhut (No. 6) which halted cruises on Halong Bay one day each. Both of them didn’t have much visible impact on Vietnam; the Super Typhoon deviated from projected path and hit Chinese mainland.

At the beginning of the second week of September and at the end of September there were spells of the Winter Monsoon (Northeasterly Monsoon) which started blowing in northern Vietnam. This is 2 months earlier than usual. The temperatures have turned lower and pleasant. Except for a few days with rains, the North of Vietnam enjoyed mostly sunny, breezy and pleasant weather in September 2018. The temperatures in the Northwest of Vietnam were 20-30oC, in the Northeast of Vietnam were 16-28oC, in the lowland 20-30oC.

The North of the Central Region (Thanh Hoa, Nghe An, Ha Tinh) has similar weather pattern to the North of Vietnam. The floods continued from August to wreak havoc in Muong Lat, Quan Son and Thuong Xuan of Thanh Hoa Province in the first week of September. The weather turned just fine after the disaster. The temperatures were 22-31oC
