Heat and haze in most parts of Thailand with isolated showers


The Thailand Meteorological Department said on Tuesday that the high-pressure system covering the Northeast and the South China Sea is weakening.

Meanwhile the southerly and southeasterly winds bring moisture from the Gulf and the South China Sea to the Northeast and Central regions including Bangkok and its vicinity, and the East.

Hot weather and haze during the day are forecast for upper Thailand, while outbreaks of thundershowers with gusty winds are expected in some areas.

Meanwhile, weak easterly winds blow over the South and the Gulf, causing less rains over the South.
