They stated that although summer had now begun and temperatures would gradually increase that certain parts of the Northern areas of Thailand could still see colder temperatures at times over the next several weeks.
Summer is expected to last until around the middle of May this year, according to the TMD.
As the Covid-19 situation in Thailand continues to improve domestic tourism is increasing, according to the Thai Tourism Authority, and summer also brings the popular Songkran New Year holiday in April. Due to Covid19, the level of celebrations for the holiday is still being discussed by the Thai government.
