36 Thai provinces to be hit by heavy rain, sharp drop in temperatures
The Thai Meteorological Department (TMD) says that between now and Thursday, 36 Thai provinces can expect to be hit by heavy rains, strong winds, and thundershowers, with a sharp drop in temperatures predicted in some regions.
The rough weather is due to a monsoon trough currently sitting over the Central, the East and the lower Northeast, a low pressure system over the South China Sea and a moderate high-pressure system from China sitting over the North-East and lower North.
This system is predicted to cause a sharp drop in temperatures from Monday to Thursday, with the TMD saying that while the upper part of Thailand will see less rainfall, it can expect the temperature to drop sharply, by up to 5 degrees Celsius.
The drop will start in the northeastern region, spreading to the North and Central regions. Residents are being advised to be aware of rapid weather changes.
The areas affected are as follows:
Northeast: Nakhon Ratchasima, Buri Ram, Surin, Si Sa Ket and Ubon Ratchathani provinces.
Central: Ratchaburi, Kanchanaburi, Samut Songkhram, Samut Sakhon, Nakhon Pathom, Suphan Buri, Uthai Thani, Chai Nat, Ang Thong, Sing Buri, Lop Buri, Saraburi and Phra Nakhon Si Ayutthaya including Bangkok and its vicinity.
East: Nakhon Nayok, Prachin Buri, Sa Kaeo, Chachoengsao, Chon Buri, Rayong, Chanthaburi and Trat.
South: Phetchaburi, Prachuap Khiri Khan, Chumphon and Ranong provinces.
