Chilling temperatures will continue until January, said met department


The chilling temperatures in Thailand’s upper regions will continue until next month, said the Thai Meteorological Department on Sunday.

North and Northeast temperatures, according to the met department, will drop by 1-3 degrees Celsius (°C) over the next few days, before climbing by an average of 2°C by the end of the week.

In Bangkok, the Central Plains and the East, meanwhile, are expected to remain between 13-18°C, at least until tomorrow

“It can vary depending on elevation and area. In mountainous areas, temperatures could drop to as low as 1°C, so tourists and residents in affected areas are advised to wear jackets to keep themselves warm,” said department chief, Somsak Khaosuwan.

Mr. Somsak also warned villages in rural mountainous areas that despite the low and chilling temperatures at the moment, signs of fires are highly likely as the dry air associated with the cold front can actually increase the chances of ablaze.

The Meteorology Department forecasts the cold front will continue to affect temperatures until late January and possibly into February.
