High temperatures to linger to April

high temperatures pattaya one march 26 2024

The Thai Meteorological Department (TMD) has cautioned the public, particularly those residing in the northern parts of Thailand, to prepare for higher temperatures than usual. These escalated temperatures are expected towards the month’s end and are foreseen to persist until early April.

Somkuan Tonjan, the head of TMD’s Meteorological Observation Division, highlighted that various regions in Thailand, notably the lower northeast, central, and eastern areas, will encounter rainfall between today and Thursday induced by a prevailing southerly wind. Following the rainfall, temperatures will rise, potentially leading to heightened health concerns.

The Northern regions are set to witness temperatures above the norm from March 30 to April 3. Conversely, the Southern areas can expect continuous rainfall in select areas due to an easterly wind, without the anticipation of strong winds during this period.

In recent updates, numerous provinces in the North and Northeast are still grappling with unhealthy levels of PM2.5 pollutants. On Monday, Chiang Mai was identified as the city with the fifth-highest air pollution worldwide, recording an air quality index of 162. Data from the Natural Resources and Environment Ministry’s Air Pollution Solution Communication Centre revealed that 26 provinces reported PM2.5 levels exceeding 37.5 microgrammes per cubic meter (μg/m³), predominantly in the northern and northeastern regions.

When compared, the air quality in the Bangkok Metropolitan Region (BMR) showed relatively better conditions, with PM2.5 levels ranging between 16.6 and 32.8 μg/m³.
