Cooler weather with strong winds forecast for upper Thailand, more rain in South


The Thailand Meteorological Department said on Friday that a moderate high-pressure system from China covers the Northeast of Thailand.

Cool to cold weather with strong winds are likely in upper Thailand with a 2-4 degrees Celsius drop in temperature in the North and the Northeast and a 1-3°C drop in the Central, the East, Bangkok and vicinity.

In addition, the westerly trough will be moving through Myanmar and the upper North, resulting in isolated thundershowers with gusty winds in the areas.

Meanwhile, the northeast monsoon prevailing over the Gulf and the South is strengthening, resulting in more rain in the South.

The weather forecast for the next 24 hours:

North: Cool to cold weather with fog in the morning and isolated thundershowers with gusty winds; temperature lows of 15-22°C and highs of 32-35°C; temperature on hilltops is likely to drop to 3-13°C.
