Hot, hazy day forecast for most of Thailand, thundershowers in lower South


Hot to very hot weather will grip the North and the Central region as a low heat pressure system covers upper Thailand, while the lower North and Central areas will see isolated thundershowers as southerly and southeasterly winds bring humidity from the Gulf and the South China Sea, the Meteorological Department said on Thursday.

The department also said a moderate easterly wind prevails across the South and the Gulf and will likely bring thundershowers to the lower South. It advised all ships to proceed with caution as waves in the lower Gulf are 1-2 metres high and will be above 2 metres during thundershowers.

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