Upper Thailand will experience cold mornings and strong winds, while the South will see isolated thundershowers.

The Thailand Meteorological Department forecast on Saturday (February 22) that a rather strong high-pressure system still covers upper Thailand and the South China Sea while continuous strong easterly winds prevail across the Gulf of Thailand. In upper Thailand cool mornings are likely while strong winds are possible in the Northeast, the East and the Central regions. People have been urged to keep warm.

The department also said that the South would have isolated thundershowers with waves up 2-3 metres high in the upper Gulf from Surat Thani upwards and 2-4 metres high in the lower Gulf from Nakhon Si Thammarat downwards. People along the shoreline should beware of inshore surges. All ships should proceed with caution, and small boats should keep ashore until February 24, the department advised.

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

Northern region: Cool weather in the morning, temperature lows of 16-21 degrees Celsius and highs of 33-36 degrees Celsius. Temperature is likely to drop to 6-14 degrees Celsius on hilltops.
