The North, the Central and the East, including Bangkok and its vicinity, are likely to experience cool weather in the morning. People in upper Thailand should take care of their health due to the variable weather, the department said.
A moderate northeast monsoon continues over the Gulf of Thailand and the South. Wind waves in the lower Gulf are likely to rise about two metres high hence all ships in the lower Gulf should proceed with caution, the department said.
