Thundershowers and gusty winds forecast in upper Thailand, hails are possible in the North and the Northeast


The Thailand Meteorological Department said on Saturday (January 22) that the westerly trough moves through the North, the upper Northeast and the Central regions while the weak high pressure-system covers the South China Sea. Thundershowers, gusty winds and hails are likely in the North and the Northeast. People should beware of the severe condition by keeping off outdoor places, big trees and unsecured billboards. Farmers should prevent for crop damage.

The Department also mentioned that the weak northeast monsoon prevails across the Gulf of Thailand and the South and brings isolated thundershowers to the South.

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