The Thailand Meteorological Department forecast on Saturday that a high pressure area from China extends to cover the Central and the East, bringing the temperature in upper Thailand down by 1-3 degrees Celsius with strong winds.

Meanwhile, a monsoon trough lies across the middle South and the moderate southwest monsoon prevails across the Andaman Sea, the lower South and the lower Gulf of Thailand, the department said.

Isolated heavy rains are likely in the South.

The category-5 typhoon “Saudel” over the middle South China Sea is expected to make landfall over the coast of upper Vietnam on October 25-26 before declining rapidly, the department said.

Isolated rains with strong winds are likely over the eastern and the lower portion of the Northeast during that period.

The weather forecast for the next 24 hours:
