Upper Thailand gets cooler by 1-2 degrees, isolated thundershowers in the South


The Thailand Meteorological Department said on Monday (January 24) that the westerly wind covers the North and the Central regions and causes the areas to become cooler by 1-2 degrees Celsius. Frost is possible on some mountaintops in the North.

Meanwhile, the southerly and southeasterly winds prevail across the Northeast and the East regions, resulting in isolated thundershowers in some areas. People in the upper country should take care of their health due to variable weather. 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.
