People living in Bangkok experienced cool breezes throughout the day today, as temperatures dropped by 1-3oC, due to the arrival of a cold front from China.
The Meteorological Department said today that the high pressure cell will cover northern Thailand from Friday until next Tuesday, keeping temperatures in Bangkok and its neighboring provinces cool, while those in the Northeast will fall by 3-5oC and 2-4oC the northern region.
Minimum temperatures in Bangkok and its peripherals on November 13th through 15th are forecast at between 20-22oC, with the possibility of rain over 20% of the area.
Minimum temperatures in other central provinces, from November 13th to 17th, are forecast to be 19-21oC while, in the northern region, minimum temperatures on the plains will range from 12-19oC but, in the mountainous areas, temperatures may drop to 6-12oC.
The lacklustre tourism business in northern and northeastern provinces is expected to be given a big boost, as tourists are expected to flock to mountain resorts, to view the sea of fog and experience the cold weather.
