Scorcher in the North, weekend storms predicted

Published

 on 

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.

Central region: Hot to very hot in many areas with dim weather; temperature lows of 25-26℃ and highs of 39-41.

Eastern region: Hot to very hot in some areas with isolated thundershowers in 10% of the areas; lows of 24-26℃ and highs of 35-40 degrees Celsius; waves less than a metre high.

Southern region (east coast): Partly cloudy with isolated thundershowers in 10% of the areas; lows of 22-26℃; highs of 33-38℃; waves under a metre high.

Southern region (west coast): Partly cloudy with isolated thundershowers in 10% of the areas; lows of 23-26℃, highs of 34-37 ℃; waves under a metre high.

Bangkok and environs: Hot to very hot in some areas; lows of 26-27℃, highs of 37-40 degrees Celsius.
