Temperatures are dropping throughout the North, Northeast and Central regions. Frost is even on some mountaintops. The Thailand Meteorological Department says the cool weather is due to the high-pressure system from China covering the upper part of Thailand.

Bangkok today reports a temperature drop with a low of 16-18 degrees Celsius, while the Central region is expected to have cool to cold weather with strong winds a low varying from 14-17 degrees and a high from 27-28 degrees. The weather is expected to be warmer with temperature rising up to 1-3 degrees.

The TMD also reports a strong northeast monsoon in the Gulf of Thailand and in the southern region. Residents along the eastern coastline should beware of inshore wind and waves up to 4 metres high. All ships should proceed with caution, and small boats keep ashore until tomorrow.

The TMD forecast for the other parts of Thailand are as follows…

  • North: Cold weather and strong winds with a low of 12-15 degrees and a high of 24-31 degrees. Temperature on hilltops is likely to drop to 3-11 degrees with frost in some areas.
  • Northeast: Cold to very cold weather and strong winds with a low of 8-12 degrees and a high of 21-24 degrees. Temperature on hilltops is likely to drop to 5-11 degrees.
  • East: Cool to cold weather and strong winds with a low of 14-21 degrees and a high of 27-31 degrees. Waves expected to be 2 metres high and over 2 metres offshore.
  • South (east coast): Cool weather and strong winds with thundershowers in 30% of the area. A low of 18-23 degrees and a high of 27-30 degrees. Waves expected to be 2-4 metres high and over 4 metres during thundershowers.
  • South (west coast): Mostly cloudy with thundershowers in 20% of the areas. A low of 21-24 degrees and a high of 30-32 degrees. Waves expected to be 1-2 metres high and 2 metres offshore.
