Thailand is officially entering the cold season today (Thursday), as temperatures in the northern, northeastern, central and eastern regions drop below 23C, said Korravee Sitthichivapark, Deputy Director-General of the Meteorological Department.

 

She said that low altitude winds have changed course, from westerly to easterly or southeasterly, adding that the average temperature, measured by  weather stations in the north, northeast, central and eastern regions, is under 23oC.

 

She also said that there may be scattered light rain over the upper part of Thailand, and the southern region is entering its rainy season. Regarding the tropical storm, which is now over the South China Sea, Korravee said that it is yet to be determined whether or when it will hit Vietnam, but the situation will become much clearer early next week.

bloody hell, I've been freezing here in Bangkok for 3 weeks!

These announcements by Thai Government Officials regarding officially entering seasons on a specific date are quite remarkable, to me at least. They rather remind me of the Anglo-Saxon monarch Canute

If you call 27 C  cool then  yes its "been cool"    however I'd say the  three Thai seasons  are Hot and dry,Hot and Wet and Bloody Hot !!   😋

Clearer or stormier .? 

The situation requires reviewing next week to ascertain if we had made enough merit to achieve the lucky required for it to give Vietnam a pelting instead of us .. is that what they mean

The Meteorological Department announced on Thursday that Thailand has officially entered the cool season, with mornings getting very chilly in the upper North.

 

The department said winds at the altitude of up to 3,500 metres have changed their direction to northeasterly or easterly, while winds above 5,000 metres are coming from the western direction.

 

The department said some rain is expected in most of Thailand, though the South will continue experiencing heavy rainfall.

Do you actually understand the story of Canute?

He was the wise one and his subjects the fools.

After 20 years, I've evolved thin Thai blood...I reach for my jacket or tuck under the sheets when it's under 27° 😆

Same here, 10 years plus, weird physiological reaction, like in the UK I'd pride myself on my ability to withstand cold weather. I think a lot depends on whether you're living in an air-con environment or just taking the heat with fans.
