Hot Hot Summer in Thailand

The Meteorological Department of Thailand informs the public that this summer is going to be much hotter compared to 2018. If you happen to travel to Thailand in April and May, plan accordingly and avoid too many outdoor activities.

While in media it is going to be between 1 and 2 degrees hotter that usual, some provinces are virtually suffocating in this summer's heat. Mae Hong Son, Lampang, Uttaradit, Sukhothai, Tak, Nakhon Sawan and Kanchanaburi will see the mercury soar past 42 degrees Celsius soon. 35 provinces of the upper Thailand have already recorded 40 degrees Celcius or over this week.

This week, Lampang was the hottest place in the country with its Thoen district boiling at 44.2 degrees Celsius. The temperature has not yet broken the previous record 43.8 degrees Celsius though, so there is some room for improvement. Neither the country’s record for hottest day was broken: on April 28, 2016 the temperature in Mae Hong Son province reached  44.6 degrees Celsius.

The temperature rose to 40 degrees Celcius in Bangkok on Thursday, and on April 27, the sun reaches zenith in Bangkok so it is very much likely that the Bangkokians should expect the hottest day of the year.
