Weatherman warns of possible freak storms

 The Meteorological Department on Thursday issued a warning of freak storms in 24 provinces in the North, Northeast, central and eastern regions.

Provinces to be affected by possible freak storms include Nan, Uttradit, Sukhothai, Phitsanulok, Kamphaeng Phet, Phichit, Petchabun, Loei, Nong Bua Lamphu, Udon Thani, Khon Kaen, Chaiyaphum, Nakhon Ratchasima, Buri Ram, Surin, Nakhon Sawan, Uthai Thani, Lop Buri, Saraburi, Nakhon Nayok, Prachin Buri, Sa Kaeo, Chachoengsao and Chon Buri.

The department warned people in the above-mentioned provinces to avoid staying in the open, under big trees or under huge advertising sign boards whenever there is a storm.

The possible freak storms are attributable to the looming moderate high pressure from China over the South China Sea and the northeastern region while upper Thailand is blanketed by hot weather.[/url

Summer thunderstorms have pummelled three villages in Wang Chin district in Phrae and Ban Phue district in Udon Thani, damaging more than 100 houses and injuring two elderly people.

In Phrae, soldiers from Phraya Chaiyaboon military camp in Den Chai district were sent to tambon Naphoon on Friday to repair homes damaged by a thunderstorm that hit the community in Wang Chin district late on Thursday night.   

Ninety-six houses in three villages within the sub-district were damaged. Many lost their roofs and a lot of trees were uprooted.

Phrae governor Wttana Putthichart said he had ordered Wang Chin district authorities and other agencies to urgently provide needed assistance.

In Udon Thani, two people were injured and 15 houses and three rice barns damaged when thunderstorms hit two villages in Ban Phue district on Thursday night.

Ban Phue district chief Natthapol Withee on Friday led officials and soldiers to survey damage in Moo 10 and  Moo 15 villages in tambon Nonthong. 

An elderly woman, Porn Mayothee, 80, and man, Sawat Nontanam, 65, were injured when the wind  ripped the roofs off their homes and debris collapsed on top of them.

The Meteorological Department said on Friday a moderate high pressure zone covers the Northeast of Thailand and the South China Sea. Hot spells could occur in parts the upper regions from March 14-16. Thunderstorms and gusty winds are forecast for the lower North, Northeast, Central and East regions during this period.

Mercury expected to rise to 40C for North, Northeast

People in the North and Northeast are warned to brace themselves for heatwave during the day as the mercury is expected to rise to 40 Celsius degree Sunday.

In its daily weather forecast issued for 6 am Sunday to 6 am Monday, the Meteorological Department explained that a lower pressure ridge is now covering upper Thailand, resulting in rising of temperature and in heatwave during the day.

It said northern provinces are expected to see maximum temperatures from 34 to 40 degree and northeastern provinces from 36 to 40 degree.

The forecast said central provinces are expected to see maximum temperature between 35 to 38 Celsius degree while the South between 31 to 36 degree.

Bangkok will see the maximum temperature ranging from 33 to 37 Celsius degree, the department added.

Tropical storm to intensify in upper parts of Thailand later this week

The Meteorological Department has warned residents of the Northeast and North of Thailand to brace for a tropical storm this week.

The tropical storm will bring thunderstorms and hail to some areas in the upper parts of the country. The storm is expected to intensify later this week, as a high pressure system from China is now moving across the Northeast of the country.

The Central Plains and the East Coast will also be slightly affected by the storm. The temperatures across Thailand will begin to decrease by the end of this week, as westerly winds from Myanmar offset the high pressure trough in the northern and northeastern regions.

People have been urged to stay indoors and remain vigilant when leaving their homes, as strong winds could knock over unstable objects and topple large trees.

Hot Haze in Bangkok, Hot Hail in the North

The hot weather forecast prompted health officials to warn the public to take precautions after Samai Jintumra, 79, died Monday in Nakhon Ratchasima province.

“Residents should avoid [prolonged exposure] and drink enough clean water to avoid heat stroke,” said a Monday night report by the Thai Meteorological Department.

Highs of 40C expected.

The meteorological department disputes it qualifies as a heat wave.

“Heat waves occur when temperature increases over 5C for more than five days,” it said in Monday night’s report. “While the daytime temperature may reach over 40C, they aren’t outstanding numbers and will cool down at night.”

Last year’s summer, the hottest since 1960
