The Meteorological Department Thursday warned people in the north and northeastern provinces to brace themselves for a heat wave and thunderstorms.
In its latest weather advisory announcement, the department said very hot weather and thunderstorms would be caused by a strong high pressure ridge over upper Vietnam that will extend to cover upper Thailand Thursday afternoon.
Moreover, a westerly trough would move from Myanmar to the North and the Northeast between April 4 and 7, resulting in summer thunderstorms and isolated hail in upper Thailand.
