VTV.vn - The cold spell affecting the northern region began to weaken last night, causing temperatures in mountainous areas to inch up.

However, overall weather conditions have still been negatively affecting locals. At about 8am today, the rain stopped on Mount Fansipan, and a thick cloud started to disperse, creating conditions for snow pellets to form near the cable car station.

The snow pellets were not as harsh as the last time they fell. This was the second incidence of snow pellets recorded in Fansipan since winter began in November 2017.
