Cool weather and light fog forecast in upper Thailand, isolated thundershowers in the South


The Thailand Meteorological Department said on Monday (January 17) that the westerly and southeasterly winds prevail across the upper North of Thailand, bringing isolated thundershowers to the areas. Farmers in the North should prevent for crop’s damage.

Meanwhile, the weak high-pressure system covers upper Thailand and the South China Sea, bringing cool to cold weather and light fog in the morning to the North and the Northeast. Mountaintops in the North and the Northeast are cold to very cold with temperature ranging from 6 to 15 °C. All transports should take caution due to poor visibility. 

The Department also mentioned that the weak northeast monsoon prevails across the Gulf of Thailand and the South and brings isolated light rains to the South.
