Less rain forecast in upper Thailand with thundershowers in the South


The Thailand Meteorological Department said on Wednesday (October 27) that the high-pressure system from China covers upper Thailand while the easterly and northeasterly winds prevail over upper Thailand, the South and the Gulf of Thailand. Less rain will be likely over upper part of the country with thundershowers and isolated heavy rain in the South.

The department also mentioned that the active low-pressure cell over the middle South China Sea will make landfall over the lower Vietnam today. It will then cover Cambodia leading to increasing rain in upper Thailand from October 27 to 29.

Meanwhile, the tropical storm MALOU over the Pacific Ocean has no effect on Thailand’s weather.

The weather forecast for the next 24 hours is as follows:

North: Partly cloudy with isolated light rain; temperature lows of 21-23 degrees and highs of 31-34 degrees Celsius.
