The north of Thailand is in for some thundershowers from today and for the next two days, as a result of another high-pressure system from China that is currently over the region.

The showers will be followed by a further dip in temperatures and strong winds, according to a forecast issued by the Thailand Meteorological Department.

Temperatures in the north and east of the country are expected to drop by between 2 and 5 degrees Celsius, and by 2 and 4 degrees Celsius in central and eastern Thailand.

It will be much colder at altitude, with minimum temperatures forecast as low as 7 to 12 degrees Celsius. Motorists are also being urged to drive with caution as a result of fog forecast for the north.

Meanwhile in the south of Thailand, more thunder showers are expected due to the prevailing monsoon.
