At 9am, residential areas, high-rise buildings in the districts of 1, 2, 3, 9, Binh Thanh, Thu Duc and others were obscured by dense fog.

Along with fog, the temperature fell to 23-25 degrees C, creating a chilly feeling.

Explaining this phenomenon, a representative of the Southern Hydrometeorological Forecasting Agency said that the weather in Ho Chi Minh City on the day was cloudy and sunny, while the humidity in the morning was over 90%.

The air contained a lot of water vapor, and in conditions with light wind, the steam was blocked by buildings, slowly escaping to the sides and up to the upper floors. Therefore, the visibility decreased.
