Thailand’s weather department says a westerly trough is moving through the North to the Northeast, and Laos, while the high-pressure system across the Northeast and the South China Sea remains weak. Weather will be cool to cold in the North, with a drop in temperatures of 1-3°C. The Northeast will see temperatures rise, meaning morning fog and isolated light rain, while central and eastern regions will see scattered thundershowers.

Weakening easterly winds across the Gulf of Thailand will bring less rain in the South and weak waves in the Gulf. From Nakhon Si Thammarat southward, waves are about 2 metres high, slightly higher during thundershowers. Thailand’s Meteorological Department today warned all ships to proceed with caution.

The quick drop of temperature is affecting thousands of monkeys living around Lop Buri’s Phra Prang Sam Yot and San Phra Kan Shrine. Villagers say monkeys were shivering and cuddling each other during last night’s strong winds.

Some of the monkeys are staying in their shelter to keep warm. They’re also less likely to leave their shelters for food or play with each other as usual.

Lop Buri Disaster prevention and mitigation says that the temperature in the province quickly dropped by 1-5 degrees Celsius, with a low of 16 degrees this morning. The officials advise people to keep warm and monitor their health conditions to prevent illnesses that are more likely with cold weather such as the flu, asthma and and hay fever. Children and the elderly people should be under special care.

Strong surf in Prachuap Khiri Khan

High waves, peaking at 2 to 4 metres, hit Prachuap Khiri Khan’s coastal beaches, gushing over the breakwater and flooding some spots of the beachside road.

Beachfront shops and restaurants have been temporarily closed while all on-water activities are prohibited in the affected areas. Over 100 fishing boats and small boats have moored in the areas around the Khao Ta Mong Lai Mountains to shelter from the strong winds.

Swimming and other water activities are prohibited at Bang Saphan district’s Ban Krut Beach, one of the province’s most popular tourist destinations, due to the dangerous conditions.

The Prachuap Khiri Khan Governor recently warned coastal residents about the potentially dangerous strong winds.

The Thai Meteorological Department issued warnings yesterday that the strong northeast monsoon that prevailed in the Gulf of Thailand and the South might cause strong winds and high waves.
