Thunderstorms are likely in upper Thailand, beginning with the Northeast, accompanied by lightning and gusty winds and hail, the Thailand Meteorological Department forecast on Wednesday (April 1).

The situation is created by another high-pressure system over Vietnam and Laos which is expected to reach the Northeast and the East where the southerly and southeasterly winds prevail across. Meanwhile, a thermal low covers upper Thailand.
