Cool to cold weather in upper Thailand, isolated heavy rains in the lower South


The Thailand Meteorological Department said on Monday (January 3) that the rather strong high-pressure system covers upper Thailand. Cool to cold weather and strong winds are forecast in the areas.

Mountaintops in the North and the Northeast are cold to very cold with temperature ranging from 3 to 15 °C. People should take care of their health due to variable weather.

The Department also mentioned that the rather strong northeast monsoon prevails across the Gulf of Thailand and the South. Thundershowers and isolated heavy rains are forecast in the lower South.
Waves in the Gulf are about 2-3 meters high and over 3 meters high during thundershowers. People in the lower South should beware of the severe condition and rain accumulation that may cause flash flood and overflows. All ships should proceed with caution and keep off thundershowers, while small boats should keep ashore.
