Thailand’s Meteorological Department said today that a thermal low is covering upper Thailand, causing hot to very hot weather there. Meanwhile, weak easterly winds across the Gulf are bringing less rain to the South.

From Saturday to Monday, another high pressure system from China will extend to upper Thailand and the South China Sea, where many areas of the upper country already have hot to very hot weather. The TMD says southwesterly wind will bring humidity from the South China Sea to the Northeast, the East, the Central and the lower North regions. This will also bring thunderstorms, thundershowers, gusty winds, hail, and possible lightning over the upper country.

The forecast for the next 24 hours is as follows:

Northern region: Hot to very hot in some areas; lows of 17-24℃ and highs of 38-41.

Northeastern region: Hot to very hot during the day, with isolated rains in some areas; lows of 21-25℃ and highs of 36-40.

Chiang Mai fire spikes air pollution up to 20 times ‘safe’ levels

A bushfire roaring away in the Doi Suthep-Pui National Park in Chiang Mai is causing continued concerns for Chiang Mai residents.

500 local officials and soldiers from the 3rd Army Region were called in to fight the blaze and spent 14 hours bringing it under control, including calling in helicopters to drop water as they tried to control the spread.

It also pushed air pollution readings in the region up to record highs, up to 1000 where the upper safe level is meant to be 50 mg per cubic metre. This afternoon it’s back to around 156.

Potential catastrophe facing Thailand’s elephant camps

Elephant Nature Park in Chiang Mai, along with many other camps in Thailand, have been forced to close their doors due to the current Coronavirus situation in Thailand. 

Apart from resulting in hardship for the elephants, the closures will seriously hurt Thailand’s tourism industry in the future if no support is forthcoming soon. “Lek” Chailert, owner of Elephant Nature Park and founder of Save Elephant Foundation,believes many of the closures will be permanent.

“If there is no support forthcoming to keep them safe, the elephants will either starve to death or may be put onto the streets to beg. It’s a very bleak outlook unless some financial help is received immediately.”
