Meteorological Department warns over extremely hot weather until early May


The Meteorological Department’s Director-General Wanchai Sakudomchai explained that Thailand will continue to experience a hot climate until early May, partly as a result of the sun being perpendicular to the Kingdom and the persisting drought conditions.

The upper part of the country is the nation’s hottest area, with temperatures around 42-43 degrees Celsius. The highest temperatures in the Southern region will be around 39-40 degrees Celsius, due to moisture and the cool sea breeze.

After around mid-May onwards, Thailand will begin to enter the monsoon season. The expected rainfall will help reduce the heat and alleviate the drought issue.
