Scorching days ahead: Officials warn of hot weather for two more weeks

Thailand will continue to experience damn hot weather at least until early May, with the upper parts of the country facing the hottest temperatures.

The hot climate is partly due to the sun being perpendicular to the kingdom and the lack of rain, but Thailand will enter its monsoon season in May.

The expected rainfall will help reduce the heat and alleviate the drought issue, said Thai Meteorological Department’s Director-General Wanchai Sakudomchai.

Compared to last year’s summer, the universe is actually being kind to Bangkok as we’re experiencing 34-39 degree Celsius this week. That’s actually not too bad.

The upper parts of the country are the nation’s hottest areas, with temperatures around 42-43 degrees Celsius, National News Bureau of Thailand reported.
