Weather in hill country in December

We are heading for a 3-day trip to the hill country in Thailand -- staying with local villagers. We'll be there the last week in December. Does anyone know what weather we should expect?

Much obliged for all help!

Nightime can get cool at higher elevations. A sweatshirt or windbreaker is a good idea.

We spent last xmas about 45 mins north of Ching Mai up in the hills. We froze our butts off. Got down to 4 degrees one morning. We had to do an emergency dash into Chiang Mai on xmas eve to buy warm clothes!

Hi,

What former posters said: Yes it can be cold at night. But you didn't tell where you will be. North of Chiang Mai or North of Chiang Rai. Temperature during daytime will be around 24/28 C, but at night it can drop around 6C.
