Cool to cold weather in upper Thailand with isolated thundershowers and gusty winds


The Thailand Meteorological Department said on Saturday (January 15) that the westerly trough moved through the upper North of Thailand, causing isolated thundershowers and gusty winds in the areas. People in the upper North should beware of the severe conditions by keeping off open areas, big trees and unsecured billboards, while farmers should prevent for crop 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 7 to 15 °C. All transports should take caution due to poor visibility. 

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


 

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

North: Cool weather with light fog in the morning and thundershowers in 30 per cent of the areas along with gusty winds; temperature lows of 16-21 degrees and highs of 28-34 degrees Celsius. Temperature on hilltops is likely to drop to 7-15 degrees Celsius.
