Thailand Weather Forecast: Scorching Heatwave Blankets Country, Temperatures Reach Record Highs


On April 1st, 2024, the Thailand weather forecast publicly revealed a heat map of Thailand using colors to indicate the predicted temperatures from April 2nd to the 6th at 1:00 PM daily. As a result, the heat map showed black colors indicating scorching weather across Thailand.

The Thai Meteorological Department forecasted weather in April and revealed that the average temperatures were higher than normal rates. Total rainfall would be about 30 percent less than normal.

In the upper parts of Thailand, there was scorching weather and heat waves in many areas, with the highest temperature ranging from 43.0 to 44.5 degrees Celsius, especially in the northern and northeastern regions, as well as the upper parts of both the central and eastern regions.

However, there would be thunderstorms in many areas periodically, which could alleviate the heat because of the low-pressure areas caused by the hot weather covering the upper part of Thailand intermittently. Additionally, there would be southerly or southeastern winds almost throughout this period.

As for the southern region, there would be hot to scorching weather in many areas, with thunderstorms covering about 20 percent of the area, mostly towards the end of the month.

This was due to the influence of the eastern or southeastern winds covering the Gulf of Thailand and the southern region.

However, towards the end of the month, weather would begin to shift to the southwestern monsoon covering the Andaman Sea and the southern region.

In summary for this month, the average temperature was expected to be higher than normal, and the total rainfall would be lower than usual, approximately 30 percent.

This month tended to have summer storms, strong winds, and the possibility of falling hail in some areas. This could cause damage to buildings, homes, and agricultural areas.

Luckily, with Songkran beginning across Thailand, cold water from water fights would help cool people down in many areas.
