Hot, hazy day forecast for upper Thailand, thundershowers in South


Upper Thailand will experience a hot to very hot day with haze, while some some areas will see thundershowers and gusty winds as southerly and southeasterly winds bring humidity from the Gulf of Thailand and the South China Sea, the Meteorological Department said on Wednesday, advising people to beware of the severe conditions.
