Experience hunting ice and snow

Usually, when the temperature drops in the North, frost will appear, but not always snow. Snow falls from the clouds above, and frost forms right on the ground, due to freezing water vapor.

It doesn’t mean it will snow if it’s really cold. Mr. Vu Minh Quan said “when it rains heavily it is most likely to snow, and when it is too dry it is difficult to snow even though it is very cold”.

“If a cold spell like today comes with rain and Hanoi’s temperature drops to 6-7 degrees, the northern mountainous area can absolutely have snow when the temperature is around 0 degrees,” Mr. Quan said.

In Vietnam, snow usually only falls for a very short period of time, sometimes just a few hours a day, like the heavy snowfall in 2013, 2016 and 2021. Mr. Quan also added that snow hunting sometimes requires “luck.” “.

“It’s best to see snow warnings before arriving” or else stay for a few days in locations where there may be snow during the cold spell.
