Cool weather with morning fog and isolated light rains are likely over upper Thailand. All vehicles should move with caution due to poor visibility, the department said.

Meanwhile, the weak northeast monsoon prevails over the Gulf and the South, resulting in less rain in the South.

The department also said that during February 17-20, another strong high pressure from China will extend to cover upper Thailand and the South China Sea, brining isolated thundershowers with gusty winds to the areas, along with 2-4 degrees Celsius drop in temperature.
