Cold weather continued in the northeastern province of Sakon Nakhon this weekend, making warm clothes and gloves a new norm.

On Sunday morning, the Mercury hovered at around 13 degrees Celsius in Sakon Nakhon town. On the Phu Phan mountain, it was much lower at 9-10 degrees Celsius. Some locals found the weather so cold that they huddled around fires in the pre-dawn hours. 

Vendors selling second-hand warm clothes reported brisk sales. 

A local weather bureau said the temperature in Sakon Nakhon will get a bit warmer in the coming week, but the chill will continue with the mercury expected to hover between 16 and 18 degrees Celsius.
