Summer has officially arrived

The Meteorological Department announced on Wednesday morning that summer has officially arrived in Thailand and is expected to end in mid-May.

The change in season is signified by a switch in the prevailing wind direction in the upper part of the country, from northeasterly to southeasterly, the department said.

Upper Thailand could expect generally hot conditions this summer, with daily highs exceeding 35°C.

For now, the weather forecast is for sporadic rain with cool mornings to continue in the North and Northeast regions for a short while.

Summer began on March 2 and is expected to end in mid-May with another shift of the prevailing wind.
