Scorcher in the North, weekend storms predicted

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.
