Cold weather arrives in Thailand’s North and Northeast

BANGKOK, 6 October 2014 (NNT) -

Temperatures in the North and Northeast are expected to drop by 3-5 degrees Celsius during the next one or two days ahead, whereas temperatures atop the mountains have already plummeted as much as 20 degrees Celsius.

Heavy fog has blanketed parts of Nan province during the morning, prompting commuters to be extra cautious when traveling. The lowest ground-level temperature in the province has reached 22 degrees Celsius by today, whereas the average temperature on top of the mountains are somewhere between 17-18 degrees Celsius.

Tourists traveling to national parks situated atop the mountains are advised to prepare themselves with proper clothing and carefully study their routes before traveling to such areas.

Elsewhere in Loei province, a thick layer of fog has covered many parts of the roads. Locals and tourists have been warned to be extra cautious, as the fog has reduced the visibility level to less than 100 meters.

The Meteorological Department has reported that from October 6-11, a strong high pressure cell coming in from China is set to cover parts of the North and Northeast. Gusty winds and thunderstorms are expected to follow as a result of this phenomenon.

A monsoon trough coming in from the South will also cause increased rainfall in the southern region and heavy rains in some areas.

Anyone who goes to a psychiatrist should have his head examined.
