Cool to cold weather forecast in the North and Northeast, isolated thundershowers in the South


The Thailand Meteorological Department said on Monday (January 31) that the westerly wind at high altitude prevails over the North and the upper Northeast of Thailand and brings cool to cold weather and morning fog to the areas. Mountaintops in the North and the Northeast 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 bring the humidity from the sea to the East and Northeast regions, causing isolated light rains in the areas.

The Department also mentioned that the weak northeast monsoon prevails across the Gulf of Thailand, leading to isolated thundershowers over the South.

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

North: Cool to cold weather with fog in the morning; temperature lows of 13-18 degrees and highs of 30-35 degrees Celsius. Temperature on hilltops is likely to drop to 5-12 degrees Celsius.
