Cool weather in upper Thailand with isolated heavy rains in the South


The Thailand Meteorological Department said on Saturday (November 6) that the weak high-pressure system covers upper Thailand while the northeast monsoon prevails over the Gulf and the South. Cool weather in the morning is forecast in upper Thailand with thundershowers and isolated heavy rains in the lower South.

From November 7 to 13, another strong high-pressure system from China will extend to cover upper Thailand and the South China Sea, bringing thundershowers and strong winds in the area, followed by a decrease in temperature by 3-7 °C in the Northeast and 3-5 °C in the North, the Central including Bangkok and its vicinity, and the East regions. 

The strengthening northeast monsoon across the Gulf of Thailand and the South will lead to more rains with isolated heavy to very heavy rains in the South. Waves in the Gulf will be 2-3 meters high and above 3 meters high in thundershowers. People in the South should beware of the severe condition and rain accumulation that may cause flash floods and overflows. Residents along the Gulf’s shore should beware of inshore surge. All ships should proceed with caution, and small boats should keep ashore.
 

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