THAILAND - People in the upper half of the country should brace for another cold snap this week.
"There will be strong wind too," the Meteorological Department forecast yesterday.
The North, Northeast, Central region and the East will see the mercury drop by five to seven degrees Celsius from today until Thursday due to the influence of a high-pressure ridge.
The lowest temperatures recorded yesterday in the North, Northeast, Central Region and East was four, 11, 18 and 16.
The ridge has already covered southern China and would likely cross into Thailand's upper part today.
Small craft were warned against going out into the Gulf of Thailand from today till Thursday, because of heavy seas whipped up by the Northeast Monsoon.
