Thailand’s wet season to linger then stay cool through February

It’s been raining endlessly and we’re ready to move on.

And we will. Just a little later than usual. Meteorologists forecast that Thailand’s cooler days of winter will officially arrive in the fourth week of October – a week later than usual – but

 last through February.

Temperatures in the capital city and its metropolitan areas are expected to drop to as low as 15C. Temperatures in the north could fall as low as 8C. 

The south will get chilly in its upper reaches, but the region will also see heavy rains. Residents are warned to prepare for flash floods and high waves. 

This long-term forecast will be updated in the last week of October, said the meteorological department.
