Cold spell continues in upper Thailand with strong winds


A rather strong high-pressure system covers upper Thailand, causing cool to cold weather with strong winds. The upper westerly winds bring the cold from Myanmar to the North of Thailand, causing the temperature to drop 1-2 degrees Celsius, the Thailand Meteorological Department said on Tuesday.

Mountaintops are cold to very cold with frost in some areas. People should watch their health due to the variable weather, the department said.
Meanwhile, the moderate northeast monsoon prevails across the Gulf of Thailand and the South with isolated thundershowers. The moderate winds in the Gulf force waves up 1-2 metres high. All ships should proceed with caution, the department said.
