Thundershowers are likely over the upper country over the next three days, with isolated heavy rain possible in the North, parts of the Northwest, the lower Northeast, the Central plains, the East and the South including Bangkok and its vicinity, the Thailand Meteorological Department announced on Friday (October 11).

The department attributed the weather conditions to a weak high pressure trough over the upper North, the upper Northeast and the South China Sea, resulting in the southeasterly and easterly winds across the upper country.

From October 12 to 15, another high-pressure system from China will move to cover the North, the Northeast, the upper Central and the South China Sea. Thundershowers with gusty winds will be likely for the first part of this period with subsequent decreases in temperature likely in the North and the Northeast.

The department recommended citizens to take care of their health in these changeable weather conditions. The winds will become stronger, lifting wave height to 2 metres and above during storms. Shipping should proceed with caution and avoid storms.

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

Northern region: Partly cloudy with thunderstorms and partly heavy rains in 30 per cent of the area; temperature lows of 21-24 degrees and highs of 33-35 degrees Celsius.

Northeastern region: Partly cloudy with thunder showers and partly heavy rains in 30 per cent of the area, temperatures lows 23-25 degrees and highs of 32-34 degrees Celsius.
