The Thai Meteorological Department announced on Sunday that Thailand will officially enter the summer season on Tuesday, March 1.
Before making the announcement, the department, said MD deputy director-general Thanasit Iamananchai, would assess the conditions.
According to Thanasit, summer conditions include a rise in Thailand’s highest temperature above 35 degrees Celsius, hot weather at noon, and South/Southeast winds blowing over upper Thailand.
“If the conditions are met, the department will make the announcement immediately,” he said.
The department said summer is the period of transition from the northeast to the southeast monsoon.
Temperatures usually rise during March in Thailand before hitting their yearly peak in April, when they average 32C (89.6F).
