Cool to cold weather is forecast for the North and the Northeast while the morning is likely to be cool in the East and the Central, including Bangkok and its vicinity.

Meanwhile, the strong northeast monsoon over the Gulf of Thailand and the South causes moderate wind waves about two metres high in the lower Gulf and the Andaman Sea. All ships should proceed with caution, the department said.

Tropical storm “Dujuan” over the Pacific Ocean is expected to make landfall over the Philippines on February 21-22, with no significant impact on Thailand, the department said.
