Upper Thailand gets cooler by 1-2 °C, heavy rains forecast in the South


The Thailand Meteorological Department said on Thursday (November 11) that the high-pressure system from China covers upper Thailand, resulting in cool weather and a decrease in temperatures by 1-2 °C.

Meanwhile, the strong northeast monsoon across the Gulf of Thailand and the Andaman Sea leads to isolated heavy to very heavy rains in the South. Waves are 2-3 meters high in the Gulf and more than 3 meters high during thundershowers. People should beware of the severe condition that may cause flash floods and overflows. Residents along the Gulf should beware of inshore surge. All ships should proceed with caution, and small boats should keep ashore until November 13.

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

North: Cool weather with isolated light rains; temperature lows of 19-23 degrees and highs of 28-32 degrees Celsius. Temperature on hilltops is likely to drop to 8-12 degrees Celsius.
