The Thailand Meteorological Department forecast on Monday that a moderate high-pressure system from China covers upper Thailand and the South China Sea.

The upper North and Northeast will have cool weather and a slight drop in temperature. The easterly winds bring humidity from the South China Sea into the lower Northeast, the East, the Central and the lower North, causing thundershowers and gusty winds in some areas. Farmers in the North and the Northeast should beware of damage to crop, the department said. The northeast monsoon in the South and the Gulf will strengthen and bring isolated heavy rain. People in the South should beware of the severe conditions, the department said.

The weather forecast for the next 24 hours:

North: Cool weather in the morning with thundershowers in 20 per cent of the areas; temperature lows of 16-23 degrees Celsius, highs of 31-35°C; temperature on hilltops are likely to drop to 7-16°C.
