CHIANG RAI – The Meteorological Department reported that during the next three days, a high pressure cell from China, coupled with westerly winds, will prevail over the northern region and create a tropical storm. Thunderstorms and possibly hailstorms can be expected in the Northeast as well.
A tropical storm is set to hit Chiang Rai, Chiang Mai and other Northern areas during March 20-23 after a long period of drought.
On Wednesday, the temperature is set to soar in most parts of the country due to a low pressure cell covering the upper region.
In the Northeast, many provinces including Chaiyaphum and Nakhon Ratchasima will be lashed with isolated showers. The temperature could rise to as high as 38 degrees Celsius.
Bangkok and its vicinity will experience cloudy conditions and will see average temperature hover between 34-37 degrees.
