The Thailand Meteorological Department forecast on Thursday (April 23) that a rather strong high-pressure system covers the Northeast, the Central and the East of the country as well as the upper South China Sea.

Hot to very hot conditions are forecast for most of upper Thailand. Summer storms are likely with thunderstorms, gusty winds, lightning and hail in the Northeast, the North, the Central and the East. In the South, the weak easterly winds ease rainfall. The department urged people to stay safe by avoiding outdoor places, large trees and unsecured buildings, while farmers should beware of damage to crops.

The weather forecast for the next 24 hours is as follows:

Northern region: Hot to very hot with thundershowers, gusty winds and hail in 10 per cent of the areas; temperature lows of 23-31 degrees and highs of 39-43 degrees Celsius.

Northeastern region: Thundershowers, gusty winds and hail in 70 per cent of the areas, temperature lows of 23-26 degrees and highs of 32-37 degrees Celsius.

Central region: Hot to very hot with thundershowers, gusty winds and hail in 10 per cent of the areas; temperature lows of 26-28 degrees, highs of 38-43 degrees Celsius.

Eastern region: Hot with thundershowers and gusty winds in 30 per cent of the areas; temperature lows of 26-29 degrees, highs of 34-39 degrees Celsius; waves less than a metre high and a metre high during thundershowers.

Southern region (east coast): Thundershowers in 10 per cent of the areas; temperature lows of 24-28 degrees, highs of 33-38 degrees Celsius; waves less than a metre high.Southern region (west coast): Thundershowers in 10 per cent of the areas; temperature lows of 24-27 degrees, highs of 34-38 degrees Celsius; waves less than a metre high.

I’m a bit disappointed, the much mooted storm didn’t happen and the garden is still as dry as a bone, all we had was a 3 hour electricity outage because of the wind and the grass (what’s left of it) is a lovely shade of yellow. Thankfully, although it’s still blooming hot it has cooled down a bit, not long now and we can all start moaning about the incessant rain.
The forest was shrinking daily but the trees kept voting for the axe as its handle was made of wood and they thought it was one of them.

Hopefully soon.
At least it won't affect our outdoor activities at the moment. :lol:

Thailand's dams need it bad.

hmm, except for wearing those stupid masks, my outdoor activities have not changed, as for many here in Udon.

Don't go out much after dark, before and during the day, traffic seems to be about the same. Only thing different I can see, is that some of the places I might need to go to, are closed and the sick fact I can't find any place to buy Scotch.

As far as rain goes think this year is going to be on the dry side.
So it goes.

We had a good 20 minutes in Ban Tad, cooled down a bit too, lovely.
The forest was shrinking daily but the trees kept voting for the axe as its handle was made of wood and they thought it was one of them.
