The Thailand Meteorological Department said on Tuesday that the rather strong high-pressure system from China covers upper Thailand, resulting in temperatures falling by 2-4 degrees Celsius in the North, making the weather cool to cold.

Meanwhile, the strong northeast monsoon prevails over the Gulf and the South, bringing strong winds and triggering waves 2-3 metres high in the lower Gulf.

All ships should proceed with caution and small boats should keep ashore until January 20, the department said.

The weather forecast for the next 24 hours:

North: Cold weather with strong winds; temperature lows of 11-14 degrees and highs of 28-31°C; temperature on hilltops is likely to drop to 4-12°C.

Northeast: Cold weather; temperature lows of 9-14°C and highs of 25-28°C; temperature on hilltops is likely to drop to 4-12°C.

Central: Cool weather; temperature lows of 16-18°C, highs of 29-31°C.

East: Cool weather; temperature lows of 16-20°C, highs of 31-33°C; waves a metre high and 1-2 metres offshore.

South (east coast): Cool weather with thundershowers in 10 per cent of the areas; temperature lows of 20-24°C, highs of 29-31°C; waves 2 metres high and 2-3 metres during thundershowers.

South (west coast): Partly cloudy with thundershowers in 10 per cent of the areas; temperature lows of 22-24°C, highs of 31-33°C; waves 2 metres high and over 2 metres offshore.
