More rain forecast for South, while temperature in upper Thailand to see further drop


The Thailand Meteorological Department said on Friday that the strong high-pressure system covering upper Thailand would result in cool to cold weather with strong winds.

Temperature is expected to fall 2-4 degrees Celsius in the North and 1-3°C in the Northeast.

Meanwhile, a strong northeast monsoon prevails over the Gulf and the South, bringing more rain and isolated heavy rain in the South. Waves in the Gulf are expected to be 2-3 metres high and four metres high in thundershowers. All ships in the Gulf should proceed with caution and small boats should keep ashore until January 3, the department said.
