Upper regions to see chilly weather in early February


BANGKOK, – The northern and northeastern regions of Thailand are likely to face a new set round of cool weather due to a strong high pressure, while the public are urged to keep themselves healthy. 

The Meteorological Department has announced weather forecast for cool climate in the north and northeastern regions of Thailand, as influenced by a rather strong high pressure from China covering the upper parts of Thailand during 2-7 February 2016.

The conditions will initially cause rainfalls and strong winds, followed by a temperature drop by 2-4 degree Celsius.

The general public are advised to ready themselves for weather change, while people living in the affected areas should take extra care by wearing warm clothes, protecting their houses from strong wind, and be careful when setting up bonfires for warmth.

Motorists should drive with caution, especially when passing through foggy areas, and farmers are advised to be aware of possible damage to their farm from weather change.
