The Ministry of Water Resources and Meteorology yesterday said that cold bouts of weather will begin in the middle of December and last longer and be cooler than previous years.
“From mid-December, the weather will start to be colder than normal,” ministry spokesman Chan Yutha said.
“We will inform the people so they know about the situation.”
He added that mountainous areas will see the coldest weather.
“Some places at night will see 17 or 18 degrees Celsius. It could be around 14 degrees Celsius along the mountain ranges and the northwest,” said Mr Yutha.
“People who are living nearby or in the area of mountain ranges will have to be careful with the cold weather.”
Mr Yutha noted that the cold weather will last until February.
