The Thailand Meteorological Department says severe storms, especially in the north, will be present through May 7. The announcement detailed the forecast with gusty winds and hail being included in the conditions due to a high pressure system from China. It also warned residents to stay away from big trees, unsecured buildings, large billboards, and outdoor places in general. Farmers were to be especially prepared for possible crop damage.

The southerly and southeasterly winds may bring moisture from the South China Sea to the north and central regions of Thailand, causing heavy rainfall and storms. The winds will affect the Gulf of Thailand, Andaman Sea, and the rest of the South, yielding scattered thundershowers and isolated heavy rains.

Below is the announcement from the Thai Meteorological Department:

Weather Warning
“Summer Storm in Thailand”

No. 19 Time Issued : April 6, 2021
The high-pressure system from China covers upper Thailand leading to decreasing temperatures in the area. Meanwhile in the upper country summer storms are less likely to happen with thunderstorms, gusty winds and isolated hail, as well as thunderbolts. All of these remains in Northern provinces of Mae Hong Son, Chiang Mai, Chiang Rai, Lamphun, Lampang, Phayao, Phrae, Nan, Uttaradit, Phitsanulok, Sukhothai, Kamphaengphet and Tak. People should stay safe from the severe conditions by keeping off an open area, big trees and unsecured billboards. Farmers are advised to prepare for crop’s damages.

This final advisory is in effect on 6 April 2021, at 5am
