Thai winter will be cooler this year — get ready!


Bring out your winter clothes and get ready for a colder Thai winter this year!

Seree Supratid, director of the Climate Change & Disaster Center at Rangsit University, said that winter this 2020 will be colder by an average of 1C.

In a phone interview, Seree told Khaosod English that the Northeast will be colder than the North this year.

“Isaan will be colder than the north this year. That doesn’t mean we will see snow or anything like that, since on average we’re 1C cooler than last year. But people will feel the difference. That’s because it’s been so hot these past three years.”

Seree also added that Bangkok will also feel the drop. “It will feel cooler than average as well, since worldwide weather is quite unstable.”

Thai winter began in late October and is expected to end at the end of February.

Last month, tourists at Doi Inthanon were delighted when the temperature dropped to 6 degrees Celsius.

This year (2020) is La Nina year and, according to Scijinks, a site produced by the NASA Space Place team, in the winter of a La Niña year, winds are much stronger than usual. This makes the water in the Pacific Ocean near the equator a few degrees colder than it usually is.
