The Thailand Meteorological Department forecast on Friday (January 17) that the high-pressure system remains over the Northeast and the South China Sea while the westerly trough at high altitude still blows cold air from the Himalayas to the North and the upper Northeast.

Cool to cold mornings are forecast with possible isolated patchy fog in the North and the Northeast. All transport should proceed with caution in foggy areas.

The department also said that the southeasterly winds prevailing across the Central and the East could bring thundershowers, while strong easterly winds across the Gulf and the South would bring more rains to the South.

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

Northern region: Cool to cold with fog in the morning and thick patches and isolated rains in some areas, temperature lows of 13-22 degrees Celsius and highs of 30-36 degrees Celsius. Temperature likely to drop to 1-10 degrees Celsius on hilltops.
