Hot and hazy day forecast for most of upper Thailand


The Thailand Meteorological Department said on Saturday that the heat low covering upper Thailand would result in hot weather with haze during the day in the areas. Morning remains 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, the department said.

From February 28 to March 4, 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. A hot day is forecast with thunderstorm and gusty winds in some areas. Hail is likely in some areas of the Northeast.
