Upper Thailand gets warmer, thundershowers in the South


The high-pressure system over upper Thailand is weakening and leading to increasing temperatures in the region as southerly and southeasterly winds cover the North, bringing hot weather along with isolated thundershowers, the Meteorological Department said on Wednesday.

Meanwhile, a moderate easterly wind across the South and the Gulf of Thailand will lead to thundershowers and isolated heavy rains over the lower South, it forecast, advising all ships to proceed with caution as waves in the Gulf are 1-2 metres high and will be above 2 metres during thundershowers.

Here’s the weather forecast for the next 24 hours:

Bangkok and surrounding areas: Partly cloudy; temperature lows of 24-26 degrees, highs of 34-36 degrees Celsius.
