HAØ NOÄI — Me­te­o­rol­o­gists will now be able to pre­dict storms five days in ad­vance in­stead of the cur­rent three-day early pre­dic­tion, said a rep­re­sen­ta­tive of the Me­te­o­ro­log­i­cal and Hy­dro­log­i­cal Fore­cast­ing Cen­tre.

They will also be able to pre­dict the de­vel­op­ment of a trop­i­cal low pres­sure three days in ad­vance in­stead of one day, deputy head of the cen­tre, Traàn Hoàng Thaùi, said at a press brief­ing in Haø Noäi on Thurs­day.

How­ever, he ad­mit­ted that the fore­cast about the sever­ity of storms and level of rain­fall was still lim­ited. He said pre­dict­ing th­ese were dif­fi­cult, even for de­vel­oped coun­tries with ad­vanced tech­nol­ogy, such as the United States, Ja­pan and South Ko­rea. Vieät Nam faces many chal­lenges, par­tic­u­larly due to the lack of ob­ser­va­tion sta­tion net­works, he said.
