Thundershowers, gusty winds and hails forecast in upper Thailand


The Thailand Meteorological Department said on Friday (January 21) that the westerly trough moves through the North, the Northeast, the Central and the East. Thundershowers, gusty winds and hails are likely in these areas. People should beware of the severe condition by keeping off outdoor places, big trees and unsecured billboards. Farmers should prevent for crop damage.

Meanwhile, the weak high pressure-system covers the South China Sea while the weak northeast monsoon prevails over the Gulf and the South, bringing isolated thundershowers to the South.

The weather forecast for the next 24 hours is as follows:

North: Cool to cold weather with thundershowers in 60 per cent of the areas, gusty winds and hails; temperature lows of 15-20 degrees and highs of 25-29 degrees Celsius. Temperature on hilltops is likely to drop to 7-14 degrees Celsius.
