Outbreaks of thundershowers and gusty winds are possible in the lower Northeast and the East while cool to cold weather, with temperatures dropping by 2-4 degrees Celsius in the North and the Northeast, the Thailand Meteorological Department forecast on Monday (Jan. 24) .

The westerly trough moving past the North will cover the Northeast while a high-pressure system from China covers Vietnam and the South China Sea causing southeasterly winds to prevail over the lower Northeast and the East.

The Central region will see temperatures dropping by 1-3 degrees Celsius.

People in the North and the Northeast have been urged to take care of their health during the changeable weather and farmers must beware of damage to crops.

Dust situation: In the North and the Central regions including Bangkok and its vicinity, strong winds blowing around the area decrease the accumulation of dust and smog in the air.

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