Meteorological Department warns Thais scorching summer on the way

Thailand’s weather forecasters say that summer has officially arrived and soaring temperatures are on their way. The national Meteorological Department released a statement yesterday saying the hotter weather conditions over the past few days had marked the end of the cooler winter season and the onset of summer.

The statement noted that average daytime temperatures had increased while the northeast monsoon had transitioned to southeast winds. Wanchai Sakudomchai is the departmental director and he says temperatures will rise gradually during March and the early weeks of April, but are expected to reach highs of 43°C towards the end of April.

Summer in Thailand generally runs from late February to June when the rainy season usually starts. Temperatures last April were continually above 40°C. Statistics show the month was the hottest in the country for 65 years. Summer also signals the end of the peak tourism season for popular Thai holiday isles such as Phuket, Koh Samui and Koh Phangan.

12GO ASIA says there are some real bargains to be had on accommodation during the low season. Apart from over the Songkran Festival period, intercity transportation services are also rarely fully booked and flights operated by low cost carriers tend to be cheaper.
