Extreme heat waves reaching 51.5 degrees Celsius in five provinces of Thailand

With temperatures reaching as high as 51.5 degrees Celsius in certain locations, summer has arrived in style in five provinces.

The increase in temperature has been attributed by the Thai Meteorological Department (TMD) to a low-pressure system that will also bring thunderstorms. According to TMD, southerly winds are bringing the high temperatures to the lower Northeast, East, and lower Central regions. Isolated thundershowers will develop in the South due to northwesterly and southwesterly winds that will cross the Andaman Sea, the Gulf of Thailand, and the South.

Although waves in the Gulf of Thailand and the Andaman Sea will only be approximately a meter high, inclement weather is likely to cause them to rise. Boats have been urged to go cautiously.

Due to weak air circulation, there will be a moderate to significant deposition of fine dust in the North. Pollution levels in the South will remain low, nevertheless, thanks to winds and breezes.

The following provinces will see extremely high temperatures:


47.5°C in Phetchabun


Maha Sarakham: 45.1°C (Kosum Phisai district)

Regional center:

Thong Pha Phum district of Kanchanaburi: 51.5 °C


Laem Chabang district of Chonburi: 50.2 °C


Thailand: 51.1 °C

The apparent temperature, or the temperature that the body perceives, is the basis for the heat index. The following categories can be used to group the heat index levels:

Monitoring: 27–32 oC

Health effects of working outside, exercising in the heat, or being exposed to the elements include body aches, headaches, nausea, and dizziness.

Warning: 32–41 oC

Heat fatigue and the chill factor

Caution: 41–54 oC

Health effects include cramps, stiffness, sunstroke, and, in extreme cases, heatstroke.

hazard level: over 54 oC

Heatstroke as a health effect

Health advice: Keep an eye on your symptoms, particularly if you are vulnerable. Reduce your outdoor activities, and if necessary, dress in air-permeable clothing and wear a hat and sunglasses. Work in teams if you’re outside.
