Summer storms to reach Thailand this week


Bangkok – A high-pressure system from China is on its way into upper Thailand and the South China Sea this week and will cause tropical storms in several regions.

The Meteorological Department reports that thunderstorms and wind gusts are forecast for the northeast on 24th and 25th April, with hail storms in some areas. Thundershowers will occur in the North, East, South and central plains, including Bangkok and nearby cities from 25th to 27th April.

People in these regions are advised to stay indoors and keep away from large trees and advertising signs for safety reasons. Agriculturists should be ready to protect their plantations from the elements.
