Hot and hazy day in upper Thailand, scattered thundershowers in the South


The Thailand Meteorological Department said on Tuesday that a heat low covers upper Thailand leading to hot to very hot conditions with haze in the areas.

Meanwhile, the southerly and southeasterly winds carry humidity from the Gulf of Thailand and the South China Sea to cover the lower North, the Northeast, the Central and the East regions, resulting in thundershowers and gusty winds in the areas.

People in upper Thailand should beware of the severe conditions, it warned.

The department added that the easterly winds blowing over the Gulf and the South would bring scattered thundershowers in the lower South.

The weather forecast for the next 24 hours:

North: Hot to very hot with haze; thundershowers and gusty winds in 20 per cent of the areas; temperature lows of 21-27 degrees Celsius, highs of 37-41°C.
