Residents of the upper provinces have been warned that temperatures will soar over the next few days, with storms and gusting winds likely and possibly hailstones too.


The Thai Meteorological Department issued the advisory covering Sunday through Wednesday (March 24-27).

 

Director-general Phuwieng Prakhammintara said a high-pressure system had moved over the Northeast and South China Sea.

Hot weather is expected across the upper provinces, bringing summer storms, he said. 

 

Isolated thunderstorms, gusts and hail are expected the Northeast, East, Central region and lower North, he said, urging people to stay safe by avoiding open areas, large trees and unsecured billboards. 

 

Farmers are advised to brace for crop damage. 

 

Threatened provinces on Sunday are Phitsanulok, Phichit, Phetchabun, Loei, Nong Bua Lamphu, Udon Thani, Nong Kai, Bueng Kan, Sakhon Nakhon, Nakhon Phanom, Chaiyaphum, Khon Kaen, Maha Sarakam, Kalasin, Roi Et, Yasothin, Mukdahan, Nakhon Ratchasima, Buri Ram, Surin, Si Sa Ket, Ubon Ratchathani, Amnat Charoen, Nakhon Sawan, Lop Buri, Saraburi, Ayutthaya, the Bangkok vicinity, Nakhon Nayok, Prachin Buri, Sa Kaeo, Chachoengsao, Chonburi, Rayong, Chanthaburi and Trat. 

 

With temperatures were expected to reach 40 degrees in many areas on Sunday, Health Department director-general Dr Panpimol Wipulakorn last week advised people voting to get at least six hours’ sleep before going out to vote and to wear light clothing. 

 

“There is a risk of heatstroke,” Panpimol warned, saying people should drink eight to 10 glasses of water. 

 

“Also, take an umbrella and a hat when you head out to vote,” she said. 

 

Queues were often long for the advance polling on March 17.

Looks like we're just about to get one here in Pattaya. Gone dark and thunder cracks.

Providing you have had 6 hours sleep, drank plenty of water, have an umbrella and a hat & have "braced" yourself - nothing to worry about 🙂 

Nothing up here in Udon 😞

The weather is quite nice in Sisaket today. It's actually a bit cool which is surprising for March.

If it ever rains with high winds again in CM they may need to add sand blasting from PM2.5 to the list of possible hazards 🤔

I think they are a subsiduary of TAT, although we would like some rain does not mean we will get any but the net is spread wide enough to claim a victory.

I'm just wondering how the temperatures will sore if it starts to rain according to the article . It should be the other way around! The temperatures will go down. That's common sense 🙂

You can't trust any forecast that comes from Thailand or even abroad. Is it so difficult to be accurate? Even today with such sofisticated meteorological software? The forecast is bloody rubbish. As a person you can do better. Just watch the cloud development and its direction and you will never get wrong. Thai weather department needs an upgrade and inform its citizens by hour about eventual rainfall or severe weather events. Their forecast is a joke at the moment forecasting the likelihood of rain, 10%, 20%, 40% and so on, Who needs that? Just state exactly if it is going to rain or not in certain areas without Mickey Mouse approach.

Watched a documentary about NC yesterday. All about no minimum age for marriage and if you commit statutory rape on a minor, you can avoid prosecution by marrying the girl. Looks like a very strange place.

Why state that. It has no relationship to the post title, it has nothing to do with Spidey. Just rubbish
