The Thai Meteorological Department said today that summer will officially arrive this week, and residents should prepare to battle the heat.
Director Wanchai Sakudomchai said that the department is preparing to announce the start of summer for Thailand in a few short days and predicts the temperature is going to get worse in late April, when we’ll be dealing with 42-43 degree Celsius weather, MThai reported.
From tomorrow, upper Thailand will have outbreaks of summer thunderstorms, gusty winds and hail in some areas. The thunderstorms will hit Bangkok on Wednesday.
The department advised residents to stay safe and indoors due to the severe weather conditions.
