Bangkok and Krabi to hit hottest temperature on Sunday
We read the complaints from our friends in Thailand that Bangkok is very hot now. We thought it is the usual heat but it is not! According to The Nation Thailand, the Thai Meteorological Department has forecast that Krabi will be the hottest place in the nation on Sunday, with its heat index hitting 54.2ᵒ Celsius.
The second hottest place in Thailand will be Bangkok’s Bang Na district, where temperatures are expected to soar to 50.2ᵒC.
The other three hottest areas in the country are Phetchabun (44.3ᵒC), Chonburi (43.2ᵒC), and Nakhon Ratchasima’s Chok Chai district (41.3ᵒC).
The heat index, also known as apparent temperature, is the temperature equivalent that people experience and is determined by combining relative humidity, air temperature and wind speed.
The Department of Health has laid out the health impacts heat will have at every level. For instance, at temperatures of 27-32ᵒC, people are advised to be “cautious” and can experience fatigue, headache or nausea.
“Extreme caution” is advised when the heat rises to 32-41ᵒC as it may lead to heat cramps and exhaustion among those who spend a lot of time outside.
Temperatures of 41-54ᵒC mean “danger” and can cause heat exhaustion or cramps, while temperatures above that enter the “extreme danger” zone, with heat stroke most likely.
To all our friends and followers staying or holidaying in Bangkok or Krabi tomorrow, please avoid the sun and drink a lot of water. Stay hydrated and be safe everyone! If you want to read more about our Thailand stories, read https://www.placesandfoods.com/category/thailand
