Cool to cold weather in upper Thailand, isolated light rains in the East, the Central and the South


The Thailand Meteorological Department said on Saturday (January 29) that the high-pressure system over the North and the upper Northeast of Thailand is weakening while the westerly wind at high altitude prevails over the upper country. Cool to cold weather with fog in the morning are likely in the North and the Northeast. Mountaintops are cold to very cold with temperature in the range of 5-14 °C. People in the upper country should take care of their health due to variable weather. All transports should take more caution due to poor visibility.

Meanwhile, the southerly and the southeasterly winds prevail over the lower Central including Bangkok and its vicinity and the East regions, causing isolated light rains in the areas.
