Thailand has officially announced that a big change of seasons has begun: winter has officially retreated and the summer season has begun, which will bring extreme heat, which in some provinces can reach +43 degrees. The average temperature in the kingdom is predicted at +35.5 degrees.
The Thai Meteorological Department (TMD) announced the beginning of the summer heat wave. Summer comes to the country when the monsoon in the upper regions of Thailand causes temperatures to rise. “The monsoon changes direction from the northeast to the southeast. This causes a gradual increase in temperature in the north and northeast. Temperatures are expected to reach at least 35 degrees every day,” the meteorologists explained. According to them, the end of the hot season will have to wait until the end of May, with an average temperature of about 35.5 degrees. In the hottest provinces – fortunately, they are not included in their list of tourist ones – the heat will reach +43 degrees.
