The Thailand Meteorological Department announced today that a “thermal low still covers upper Thailand and southerly and southeasterly winds are bringing humidity from the South China Sea to the Northeast, the East and the Central region”.

Chiang Mai is forecasting another scorcher today with temperatures reaching 39 degrees. The region’s smoke and smog problem is also ‘hazardous’ today with readings of PM2.5 particulate reaching 438!

Chiang Mai is listed as the most polluted city in the world again today. Number One by a LONG shot today. Yesterday we reported firefighters trying to contain an out-of-control fire on a mountain slope near to the city.
