Mini heatwave to hit northern Thailand next week | Samui Times

People living in northern Thailand are being warned to take extra care as temperatures are set to soar over the next couple of days.

Thailand’s Met Office is advising residents to prepare for an increase in temperatures by staying out of the sun during the hottest time of the day and making sure they stay properly hydrated.

Forecasters have said that due a high pressure weather system, temperatures in upper and northern Thailand could reach 39 degrees Celsius during March 3rd to 5th.

People living in the northeast of Thailand will experience slightly cooler temperatures but with an increased chance of light rain and thunderstorms. 

The news comes after it was announced that Thailand officially entered its summer season on Feb 21.

This year forecasters are predicting scorching temperatures and “an extraordinarily hot and arid summer” following what was an unusually warm winter season.

The summer temperatures are expected to reach up to 44 degrees Celsius in provinces such as Kanchanaburi, Lampang, Uttaradit and Sukhothai.

Thailand’s Met Office also warned that if their predictions prove to be accurate, this year will be the second hottest summer ever recorded in Thailand.
