Less rain forecast in upper Thailand with thundershowers in the South


The Thailand Meteorological Department said on Tuesday (October 26) that the high-pressure system from China covering upper Thailand is weakening, while the easterly and northeasterly winds prevail over upper Thailand, the South and the Gulf of Thailand. Less rain is forecast over upper part of the country with thundershowers in the South.

The department also mentioned that the active low-pressure cell over the middle South China Sea will likely intensify and make landfall over the lower Vietnam during October 27-28, while the tropical storm MALOU over the Pacific Ocean has no effect on Thailand’s weather.
