Thailand’s Meteorological Department says today that a low pressure system covers upper Thailand and will make for hot, dry days in the north of Thailand. Chiang Mai, Bangkok and Phuket five day forecasts below.

“A westerly trough covers the upper Northeast, while southerly and southeasterly winds blow humidity from the South China Sea into the Northeast, the East, the Central and the lower North regions. Outbreaks of summer storms are forecast with gusty winds, hail and lightning in some portions of the upper country.”

From Monday until Saturday, a low pressure cell will remain in upper Thailand causing hot to very hot conditions. Southerly and southeasterly winds will continue to bring the humidity into the Northeast and the East. Isolated thundershowers are likely in those areas.

Last week Chiang Mai residents sweltered with daily temperatures of 39 and 40 each day.
