Dept of Health recommends drinking 20 glasses of water per day during summer

BANGKOK, 21 April 2015 (NNT) - The Department of Health has advised people to stay hydrated and refrain from drinking alcohol during the summer months.

Department Director General Pornthep Siriwanarangsan recommends that people drink cold water and shower regularly to moderate their body temperature on warm days.

Dr. Pornthep added that drinking 20 glasses of water daily helps to replenish body fluids. He said that if a person urinates less than five times a day, he/she is relatively dehydrated.

He warned against drinking alcohol on warm days, because the alcohol increases body temperature and can eventually contribute to heatstroke.

A friend of mine suggested drinking electrolyte as well as water in extreme heat, especially if you feel a bit fatigued.  It really does the trick for me as just drinking water alone can lead you to become very tired if you're losing a lot of salts.  I would thorough recommend getting a few sachets in Lotus/7-11/local drug store.  The thai term is "Gleua Rair" and it's about 5-6 baht a packet.  A sachet every day or two is more than enough.

I won't be drinking any alcohol unless it looks unappealling, does not display the brand and is accompanied by a serious meditation session.

The Electricity Generating Authority of Thailand (Egat) said demand for electricity hit a record high as temperatures soared across the country Tuesday.

Surpassing a record hit only two weeks ago, Egat recorded usage of 27,139 megawatts. On April 7, 27,056 MW were consumed.

Tuesday's demand also surpassed last year's peak of 26,942 MW, and it is expected to rise further. The Meteorological Department reported the average temperature today at 38.3 degrees Celsius

i had to look that one up.

When a man wears jeans or pants that are too tight in the crotch area and the testicles are extenuated, one on each side of the crotch seam, thus visually protruding like crab eyes. :o

That guy's jeans were so tight he had crab eye every time he moved his legs.   :lol

From the same source.

Although a crab eye could seem quite cute or friendly at first, do not be fooled, as their black beady eyes hold many sinister powers.

Look a crab eye in the crab eyes and it could be the last thing you ever do.

Video in memory of Steve Jobs. hmm well done, but it won't make the catchy tunes.

Hotter temperatures forecast at the beginning of May

BANGKOK, 30 April 2015 (NNT) - Thais can expect more precipitation before another heat wave grips the country at the end of this week.

Meteorologists have forecast that the upper part of Thailand will continue to experience thundershowers and gale winds until the beginning of May.

Winds are expected to move across the Northeast of Thailand from Laos, while the southeasterly wind from the Gulf of Thailand will bring high levels of humidity.

A low pressure system will begin to extend across the upper part of the country from May 1 – 4. Temperatures will rise significantly in this region.

Despite the weakening southeasterly wind from the Gulf of Thailand, most parts of Thailand will continue to have rains.

Well they certainly got that one right. we had a storm here yesterday about 40 klicks north of phimai,  torrential rains with very gusty winds, here's a bit more the same.....

Low pressure system likely to increase temperature in Thailand

BANGKOK, 4 May 2015 (NNT)- The Department of Disaster Prevention and Mitigation (DDPM) has warned people in the upper part of the country of possible dangers from tropical storms during this time of year.

According to the DDPM Deputy Director-General, Anusorn Keawkangwan, temperatures will increase in the North and Northeast due to the low pressure system.

It will also be extremely hot in some areas. The southeasterly wind will bring thundershowers from the Gulf of Thailand to the eastern, central and lower northeastern provinces

People have been warned against the possibility of strong gales and hail storms during this time of year. In case they need assistance, they are advised to call the DDPM’s hotline 1784 or contact the provincial authority in their respective provinces.

I know were not in Bangkok but for those who are and are wondering where their shadow has gone, here's why.

Equinox to heat up Bangkok on Thursday

People in Bangkok could face a scorcher of a day on Thursday, with the sun directly over head around noon.

The National Astronomical Research Institute of Thailand said on Monday the summer equinox in Bangkok will occur at 12.16pm on Thursday. With the sun immediately overhead, people standing outside will cast very little shadow.

Potentially, with the sun's rays striking directly down, it could also be the hottest day of the year in the capital city, the institute said.

However, temperatures also depend on other factors, including clouds and rain, institute deputy director Sarun Posayachinda said, so it might not be all that bad.

The Meteorological Department forecasts a maximum temperature in Bangkok from Wednesday to Saturday of 39°C, about 2°C above average.

The hottest days in Bangkok so far were last Friday and Saturday, when the mercury rose to 38°C, according to accuweather.com, which tracks temperatures around the globe.

People in Betong district in Yala were the first to see the sun directly above them on this pass northwards, at 12.19pm on April 5 . Residents of Mae Sai district in Chiang Rai will be the last, at 12.17pm on May 19.

Mae Sai is the northernmost district and Betong is the southernmost in the country.

The next equinox in Bangkok, as the sun heads south again, will be at 12.24pm on Aug 16.

Summer heat to max out this week


Photo courtesy of the National Astronomical Research Institute of Thailand: The sun is reaching zenith position directly overhead on different days in different places in Thailand this month, shadows shrinking to minimum size.

Friday and Saturday (April 28-29) will be the hottest days of the year in Thailand, with the temperature expected to reach 43 degrees Celsius in Mae Hong Son, Chiang Rai and Lampang, the Meteorological Department says.

Department director-general Wanchai Sakudomchai on Tuesday advised against going outdoors in the afternoon on those days because the extreme heat could cause harm.

The sun will be at its zenith in Bangkok on Thursday (April 27), Wanchai said, but summer storms in some areas are likely to keep the temperature lower that day in and around the capital compared to other provinces.

The sun is at zenith at different times in different provinces this month and next, said Saran Poshyachinda, deputy director of the Science and Technology Ministry’s National Astronomical Research Institute of Thailand.

It was directly overhead, at its highest position relative to Earth’s orbit, in Yala’s Betong district on April 5, Phuket on April 10 and Pattaya on April 24.

In Bangkok the sun will be at zenith, casting minimal shadows, at 12.16pm on Thursday.

In Chiang Rai’s Mae Sai district the solar zenith occurs on May 19 at 12.17pm.

Saran pointed out that the sun at zenith does not necessarily mean the temperature will be at its highest. The heat level depends on other factors as well, such as rain, clouds, the monsoon’s influence and heat accumulated in the atmosphere.

Countries in the subtropics like Thailand see the sun at or near zenith two days a year at most, Saran said. It will reach zenith again over Bangkok on August 16 at 12.24pm.

Re: HOT OR WOT - hot enough to cook a steak – inside your car!

I would say not to try that, cook a steak inside your car, could be dangerous, but the nation reports

Bangkok’s hot summer sun is strong enough to cook steak by just placing marinated meat in a skillet inside a car parked outdoors on a sunny afternoon.



Bangkok’s hot summer sun is strong enough to cook steak by just placing marinated meat in a skillet inside a car parked outdoors on a sunny afternoon.

The famous SchwedaKong cooking fanpage on Facebook has posted pictures of medium-rare gammon steak with toast and fried egg that was cooked by placing the ingredients in a black skillet in a car on a hot afternoon and letting the extreme heat do the rest.

With summer in Thailand reaching its peak this Thursday and the outdoor temperature during the afternoon often currently rising beyond 40 degrees Celsius, a netizen experimented to prove that the burning sun of the capital is literally hot enough cook food.

The administrator of SchwedaKong fanpage stated that one of his friends had tried to cook steak by using the heat inside a car parked outdoors during the hottest time of day in Bangkok.

His friend conducted the experiment by placing marinated pork, sliced bread, chopped carrots and egg in a black skillet and leaving it inside the car from 1pm to 4.30pm.

The experiment was a complete success, as the gammon was cooked through, the bread was toasted, and the egg solidified.

The temperature inside the car during the experiment was measured at a searing 48 to 56 degrees.

Previously, the same netizen had also tried to cook onsen egg (Japanese-style soft-boiled egg) by placing an egg inside a car for 90 minutes, and that also proved to be a resounding success, the administrator said.

However, he cautioned that this kind of cooking was not hygienic, as the food could be contaminated with harmful bacteria because the heat is not high enough to kill such microbes.
