Summer storms likely over next 24 hours in Thailand says Thai Meteorological Department


The Thai Meteorological Department (TMD) stated this morning on their website that they forecast summer storms with a high probability over the next 24 hours in much of Thailand.

For the Eastern provinces, the TMD forecasts sixty percent of summer storms, which may include heavy rain, lightning, wind, and sporadic flooding in some areas. Local residents are being asked to be aware well out and about their regular routine.

For our readers in Bangkok, the chance is lower, at a forecast of forty percent over the next 24 hours. The highest chance of rain is in the North and Northeastern provinces, also known as Issan.

The storms are being caused by a new high-pressure area from China covering the upper Northeast of Thailand and interacting with seasonally hot weather from the South of Thailand, causing summer storms throughout much of the country.
