Get your coats or jackets ready if you're living in upper Thailand. The region will experience cool to cold weather with strong winds and a 1-3-degree-Celsius drop in temperature especially on Friday as a strong high-pressure system from China blows across to Thailand, the Meteorological Department forecast on Thursday.

A strong northeast monsoon prevailing over the Gulf and the South will bring heavy to very heavy rain in the area on Thursday, the department said, warning people in the lower South to beware of severe conditions that may cause flash floods and water runoff.

The department also said waves in the Gulf and the Andaman Sea are likely to be about 2 metres high and above 3 metres during thundershowers. It advised all ships to proceed with caution and keep away from thundershower areas, while small boats should stay ashore until December 4.

Here’s the weather forecast for the next 24 hours:
