Weatherman predicts coldest period from December 7-9
Most parts of Thailand are forecast to experience cool weather this weekend, when temperatures in the North and Northeast are forecast to drop to between 6oC and 12oC and as low as 1oC on mountain tops due to an intense cold front now looming over Thailand.
Temperatures in Bangkok and its suburbs, as well as provinces in the central and eastern regions, are also forecast to dip to 13-18oC from December 7th to 9th, according to Thailand’s Meteorological Department this morning.
Because of the cold and dry weather, the department is warning of the possibility of fires spreading from the burning of farm waste and the malfunctioning of electrical systems.
Strong winds and high waves are also expected in the Gulf of Thailand, with 2-4 metre wave height.
