Cold to cool weather in upper Thailand, isolated heavy rains in the South


The Thailand Meteorological Department said on Friday (December 3) that the rather strong high-pressure system covers upper Thailand. Cool to cold weather and strong winds are forecast in the areas, with a drop in temperature by 1-2 degrees Celsius.

Meanwhile, the rather strong northeast monsoon prevails over the Gulf and the South while the monsoon trough lies across Malaysia. Isolated heavy rains are likely over the lower South. People should beware of the severe condition and rain accumulation that may cause overflows and flash floods. 

Waves in the Gulf of Thailand are 2 meters high and more than 2 meters high during thundershowers. All ships should proceed with caution and keep off thundershowers.

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