However, South Thailand received light to moderate rains while the northern provinces witnessed light rainfall activity. On the other hand, the eastern provinces of the country were mainly dry.

As of now, the low-pressure area is gradually moving in the westward direction towards the Andaman Sea. Moreover, the high-pressure area is currently over South China, and this is likely to extend to the northeast of Thailand in the next 24 hours.

In the wake of this, cool winds from the north are expected to prevail which will result in dropping the temperatures of the northern, northeastern, and central parts of the country by 2-4 degrees in next 48 hours.
