    Thai Meteorological Department Warns of Weather Shifts

    On November 28th, 2023, the Thai Meteorological Department predicted weather in the next 24 hours, stating that a mid-level high-pressure system or a cold air mass will cover the upper parts of Thailand and the South China Sea. This pattern is expected to cause a temperature drop in these areas.


    The northeastern and eastern regions will experience strong winds. The northeast monsoon will cover the lower Gulf of Thailand and the lower southern Thailand, as a result, there will be relatively strong winds.
    Residents in the upper parts of Thailand are advised to take care of their health due to rapidly changing weather conditions.

    Moreover, the weather in the lower northeastern part covering the lower Gulf of Thailand and the lower southern region is relatively strong, coupled with a low-pressure area that covers Malaysia and the Malacca Strait. This pattern is expected to result in heavy to very heavy rainfall in some areas of the lower southern region.

    The wind and waves in the lower Gulf of Thailand are moderately strong, reaching 2-3 meters. Areas with rain and thunderstorms could experience waves higher than 3 meters.


    Residents in the lower southern region should be cautious of the dangers posed by heavy rainfall and accumulated rain, which could lead to flash floods, especially in areas near flowing water and low-lying areas. Small boats in the lower Gulf of Thailand are advised to remain docked during this time.

    Coastal Chanthaburi overnight low of 25C, daytime high 33C with a 'feels like' 36C. Last year think our coolest was a chilling 21C. The emergency polar fleece blanket hasn't been required yet.

    Two years ago I was in Wellington NZ. Note their summer today features a high of 17C low of 12C, nothing I miss about that.

    Last week there was a forecast of 2m swells in the eastern Gulf. I couldn't find them. 2cm maybe.

    My wife's sister in Surat Thani, who lives out in the boondocks, is somewhat isolated as heavy rain has caused creeks to overflow and wash out the bridge.

    Heavy rain in the south is normal at this time of year.
