Bangkok – The Meteorological Department has pointed out that despite warmer weather over the past weekend, cool temperatures will return to the nation this week, urging members of the public to be mindful of their health.
A new low to medium pressure front from China is expected to move to the north of Thailand this week, which combined with winds from the South China Sea will result in rains and a drop in temperature of 2-4 degrees Celsius. The northeast will be the first area to feel the cooler weather.
Monsoons in the northeast are forecast to pick up in intensity and waves in the Gulf of Thailand will reach 2 meters.
Authorities have already begun assisting residents in provinces such as Nan, Bueng Kan and Nong Bualamphu where the cool weather has resulted in fog and affected residents.
