Cool to cold weather and light morning fog forecast in upper Thailand


The Thailand Meteorological Department said on Wednesday (January 26) that the high-pressure system covers the upper North and the upper Northeast while the upper westerly wind prevails across upper Thailand. Cool to cold weather with light fog in the morning are likely in the upper country.

Mountaintops in the North and the Northeast are cold to very cold with minimum temperature in the range of 5-15 °C. People in the upper country should take care of their health due to variable weather. All transports should take more caution due to poor visibility.
