Central Vietnam sees most of its rainfall between August and December, but my January should be drying out a little.
Probably not the answer you were looking for!

Given that we love to 'predict' weather, but rarely do we gain absolute success, maybe your question needs to be directed to a 'higher' authority than merely the Travelfish audience.
If you do find a web connection to that 'higher' authority, please don't keep it a secret.
My understanding is that Tet occurs near the end on the 'winter' monsoon period. Thus, you'd have to factor in the potential of a monsoon at that time.
I spent New Year in Hoi An in 2007/08. Had a great time. We partied out at the nightclub that is on the beach - Seamile Club I think it was called. There is a pool there and a big dancefloor, there was a live band as well. All the motorbike drivers know this place. The weather was ok - a little cool, very windy but no rain. That was on New Years though..

In VN southern, rainy season's from Dec - Mar, and sunny's from Apr - Nov. Vietnamese Tet ( Lunar calendar) normally falls in early Feb or late Jan of Christ calendar. Hoi An is in the middle, but weather's somehow more likely in the south. I've just been there, it was late of Apr, but it was rain there. All the locals there felt strange about this weather. Best is in May - Nov, much sun and wind. The sea is great.
P/s:In the north, rainy season's from Jun - Sep. Oct is autumn, and the weather's so so fine.
