Cool in the morning, hot and hazy during the day in upper Thailand
The Thailand Meteorological Department said on Friday that a thermal low covers upper Thailand, resulting in hot weather with haze during the day in the areas. The morning will remain cool in the upper North and upper Northeast due to westerly winds from the Himalayan range blowing over the areas.
Meanwhile, the weak easterly wind across the Gulf of Thailand causes weak winds and waves over the Gulf and the Andaman Sea.
During February 28-March 3, another moderate high pressure will extend to cover the Northeast and the South China Sea, while the southerly and southeasterly winds bring humidity from the South China Sea to the lower Northeast, the Central, the East including Bangkok and its vicinity. Hot days are forecast over the areas with thunderstorm and gusty winds in some areas.
