Rainfall is expected at certain areas in Thailand’s northern region as temperatures continue to drop.

Temperatures in the northeastern region will drop by 3-5 degrees Celsius, while other regions will see temperatures decline by 2-4 degrees.

Thailand’s Meteorological Department has reported a high pressure system from China will expand to Thailand’s northeastern region on December 15 and will eventually cover Thailand’s entire northern region by December 19.

As a result, temperatures in the area will drop with precipitation expected in some areas. Meanwhile, the monsoon approaching the Gulf of Thailand and the country’s southern region is expected to grow in strength, causing waves in the region from Surat Thani province and southward to be as high as 2-3 meters.

Caution has been advised to regular fishing boats, while smaller vessels should refrain from conducting activities between December 16 and 19. Meanwhile, Typhoon Melor that has reached the Philippines is forecast to move towards the Southern China Sea on December 17 before weakening.
