Doi Inthanon, Thailand’s highest mountain located in Chiang Mai, has its first recorded frost this year at 6 am earlier today. The temperature was at 1 degree Celsius.
According to report, Doi Inthanon recorded its first frost this year. The freezing weather on the mountain top changed the color of the grass to white due to frost.
Tourists have since arriving in flocks to the mountain peak of Doi Inthanon to get the feel of the winter breeze and to witness sea of clouds enveloping the mountains before the sun is up.
For the next 24 hours, the northern region would see a drop of 2-4 degrees Celsius due to strong cold front from China which is still looming over the upper part of Thailand, the Meteorological Department announced.
Temperatures between 8-14 degrees Celsius at minimum and 17-21 degrees Celsius at maximum were forecast in the mountain peaks in the north.
The mountain tops in the Northeast are also predicted to have freezing weather.
