Turbulent weather before temperature drop later this week

People in the upper north of Thailand are warned of turbulent weather from Wednesday until Saturday, with rain storm and strong wind during the initial period to be followed by a drop in temperature from 2-4 degrees Celsius.

Mr Wanchai Sak-udomchai, director-general of Thai Meteorological Department, said Monday that the anticipated turbulent weather stemmed from the spread of cold spell from China blanketing the northeastern region and South China Sea.

He said that people in the northeastern region will first experience the turbulent weather before it moves to the northern, central and eastern regions as well as Bangkok.

He warned people to stay clear of open space, under big trees or huge billboards which are not strong during rain storm.
