The strong northeast monsoon is currently hovering over the Gulf of Thailand which has created the possibility of heavy rain and strong wind.
The northeast monsoon kick-started in southern Thailand this year from mid to late October, minimizing the length of the annual wet season. Many parts of southern Thailand, usually flush with wet season rain by now, will be facing drought-like conditions in the coming months.
The meteorology department is expecting the formation of strong winds, causing waves of 2 metres in height and up to 3 metres during storms in the Gulf.
All ships have been advised to proceed with caution.
Flash flooding is also expected in Thailand’s Gulf coast g, with excess rainwater draining away slowly.
Meanwhile, northern Thailand might experience dry and cool weather because of a moderately high-pressure system. Minimum temperatures are likely to be between 15 and 21 degrees Celsius, with frost expected in some places and very cold minimum temperatures of 5 – to 15 degrees at altitude.
While in the northern region, the weather is supposed to be cool in the morning with expected temperature lows of 16-20 degrees and highs of 31-35 degrees Celsius. Temperature is likely to plummet to 5-12 degrees on hilltops with frost in parts.
The northeastern region is supposed to experience cool and foggy conditions in the morning with minimum temperature hovering between 17-22 degrees and the maximum temperature hovering between 32-34 degrees Celsius. Temperature is likely to drop to 9-15 degrees on hilltops.
The minimum temperature is anticipated between 20-23 degrees and maximum between 32-35 degrees Celsius in the Central region.
Eastern region is likely to experience minimum temperature between 21-25 degrees and maximum between 34-36 degree Celsius.
Bangkok and the surrounding areas are likely to be partly cloudy with the minimum temperature hovering between 23-25 degrees and the maximum temperature hovering between 33-36 degrees.
