The Thailand Meteorological Department forecast on Monday (February 24) that a rather strong high-pressure system that covers upper Thailand and the South China Sea is weakening while continuous strong easterly winds prevail across the Gulf of Thailand.

In upper Thailand, mornings will be cool to cold with strong winds likely in the East and the Central regions. The South will have isolated thundershowers with the 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. The department has advised ships to proceed with caution, and urged small boats to stay ashore.

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

Northern region: Cool to cold weather in the morning, temperature lows of 16-20 degrees and highs of 32-36 degrees Celsius. Temperature likely to drop to 6-14 degrees on hilltops.

Northeastern region: Cool weather in the morning, temperatures lows of 16-21 degrees Celsius and highs of 32-35 degrees Celsius. Temperature likely to drop to 8-15 degrees Celsius on hilltops.

Central region: Cool weather in the morning with strong winds; temperature lows of 21-23 degrees Celsius, highs of 34-36 degrees Celsius.

Eastern region: Cool weather in the morning with strong winds; temperature lows of 20-24 degrees Celsius, highs of 34-36 degrees Celsius; waves 1-2 metres high.

Southern region (west coast): Mostly cloudy with thundershowers in 10 per cent of the area; temperature lows of 22-26 degrees Celsius, highs of 32-36 degrees Celsius; waves 1-2 metres high.
