Residents of several provinces in the North, Northeast, Central and East were warned to brace themselves on Saturday for thunderstorms until Monday.

In its seventh warning on summer thunderstorms issued at 5am on Saturday, the Meteorological Department said the thunderstorms were being caused by a high pressure system from China that covers the upper part of the Northeast and the South China Sea, while the southeasterly winds prevailed across the lower North, the Northeast, the Central and the East.

The high pressure or cold weather would hit hot spells that cover upper Thailand, resulting in thunderstorms, gusty winds, and possible hailstones, the warning said.
