Thailand’s Meteorological Department forecast for today suggests that…

“A thermal low will blanket northern Thailand while winds from the south and southeast will bring humidity to the lower North, the Northeast, the Central and Eastern regions (forecasts for Chiang Mai, Bangkok and Phuket below). Weather continues to be humid and unsettled in the south as the south-westerly monsoon starts to build strength.

“The combination of the thermal low and humidity will result in hot to very hot conditions in the greater North while thundershowers are likely in the lower North, the Northeast, the Central including Bangkok and its vicinity, and the East regions. The department has advised people to be prepared for potentially severe weather.”
