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 forecast for the next 24 hours:

Northern region: Cool to cold, with lows of 10-22°C and highs of 34-37°C. Temperatures will likely to drop to 3-12°C on hilltops.

Northeastern region: Cool with fog in the morning, isolated rains, lows of 21-24°C and highs of 34-37°C. Temperatures will drop to 9-15°C on hilltops.

Central region: Cloudy with fog in the morning; lows of 23-25°C, highs of 35-38°C.

Eastern region: Cloudy with thundershowers in 10% of the area; lows of 22-26°C, highs of 32-37°C; waves of 1-2 metres.
