Cool weather in the North and Northeast, isolated heavy rains in the South


The Thailand Meteorological Department said on Wednesday (November 17) that the weak high-pressure system covers upper Thailand and the South China Sea, resulting in cool weather in the North and the Northeast and morning fog in upper country. All transports should proceed with caution in foggy areas.

The weak northeast monsoon prevails across the Gulf of Thailand and the South while the low-pressure cell covers the middle South. Isolated heavy rains are likely in the South. People in these areas should beware of the severe condition. Waves are 1-2 meters high in the Gulf and about 2 meters high during thundershowers.
