BANGKOK — Cooler temperatures are coming to the capital and northern Thailand this week, the national weather agency said Monday.

Expect cooler mornings as Bangkok’s average lows will drop by up to 2C to about 21C from Wednesday to Sunday. The north and northeast will face gusty winds, while temperatures could fall by 4C to as low as 15C during the week.

As tourists start flocking to mountain areas to feel the chill, the forecast said northern mountains will be even cooler starting Thursday with the average low falling 6C to 13C.

The south, however, will experience torrential rain throughout the week, which could trigger flash floods.
