Summer storms warning

Weathermen warn that summer storms are likely throughout much of Thailand from Tuesday to Thursday.

Natapon Natasomboon, director-general of the Meteorological Department, said on Tuesday the storms were the result of the convergence of a high pressure system from China and southerly and southeasterly winds bringing humidity from the sea. Some areas could experience hail.

He said storms were expected on Tuesday in:

- the Northeast: in Chaiyaphum, Nakhon Ratchasima, Buri Ram, Surin, Si Sa Ket, Amnat Charoen and Ubon Ratchathani provinces;

- the Central Plain: Lop Buri, Saraburi, Sing Buri, Ang Thong, Ayutthaya, Samut Sakhon, Samut Songkhram, Ratchaburi and greater Bangkok; and

- the East: Nakhon Nayok, Prachin Buri, Sa Kaeo, Chachoengsao, Chon Buri, Rayong, Chanthaburi and Trat.

On Wednesday, storms would reach the North - Uttaradit, Sukhothai, Phitsanulok, Kamphaeng Phet, Phichit, Phetchabun and Tak.

In the Northeast, summer storms would continue in the same provinces, except Amnat Charoen.

In the Central Plain storms would expand to Nakhon Sawan, Uthai Thani, Chai Nat, Suphan Buri and Kanchanaburi.

In the East, storms would continue in Nakhon Nayok, Prachin Buri, Sa Kaeo, Chachoengsao, Chon Buri, Rayong, Chanthaburi and Trat.

In the South, storms would arrive in Phetchaburi, Prachuap Khiri Khan and Chumphon.

On Thursday storms would continue in the northern provinces of Sukhothai, Phitsanulok, Kamphaeng Phet, Phichit, Phetchabun and Tak.

They were also forecast to remain in the northeastern provinces of Chaiyaphum, Nakhon Ratchasima and Buri Ram; the central plain provinces of Uthai Thani, Suphan Buri, Kanchanaburi and Ratchaburi; and the eastern provinces of Nakhon Nayok, Prachin Buri, Sa Kaeo, Chanthaburi and Trat.
