Weather forecast set to improve in 2018
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.
