Bangkok residents shiver as temperatures fall to 15C


Residents in Bangkok were shivering this week after temperatures plunged during a rare cold spell.

A cold front and high pressure from the north of the country caused single-digit temperatures in some parts. While in the capital, lows of 15C were recorded.

Footage shows residents keeping warm with hoodies and jackets in the normally tropical country, where temperatures soar into the 30s most months of the year.

Forecasters said that temperatures will rise again towards the weekend.
