Cool to cold weather in upper Thailand, thundershowers forecast for South


A moderate high-pressure system covers the North, the Northeast, the Central and the East, resulting in cool to cold weather in those regions, the Thailand Meteorological Department forecast on Friday.

Meanwhile, waves in the lower Gulf will rise up to about two metres high due to the moderate northeast monsoon across the Gulf and the South.

The department said that during February 7-9, outbreaks of thundershowers, strong winds and isolated hail would be likely over the North and the Northeast before the temperatures drops by 4-6 degrees Celsius.

The weather forecast for the next 24 hours:

North: Cool to cold weather; temperature lows of 16-19 degrees Celsius, highs of 32-36°C; temperature on hilltops is likely to drop to 4-12°C.
