Hot day with isolated thundershowers forecast for most of Thailand


If you live in upper Thailand expect a hot to very hot day as a heat cell covers the region, the Meteorological Department said on Thursday, adding that the Northeast, the Central region, including Bangkok and its vicinity, and the East are also in for a hot day with isolated thundershowers as a southwesterly wind brings moisture from the Andaman Sea and the Gulf.

Meanwhile, large areas of the South will experience thundershowers too.

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

Bangkok and surrounding areas: Hot day with isolated light rains; temperature lows of 25-27 degrees, highs of 34-37 degrees Celsius.
