Northern Thailand – It’s Back!

Via: City News – Chiang Mai

On 14th March, the Department of Disaster Prevention and Mitigation, Ministry of Interior reported weather conditions on 13th March at 9 a.m. were far from salubrious (salubrious – not a word you hear everyday, but hey) for Chiang Mai residents.

The volume of particles in the air in Chiang Mai was recorded at 65 micrograms per cubic metre at Chiang Mai Provincial Office, 82 micrograms per cubic metre at Yupparaj Wittayalai School, and 22 micrograms per cubic metre at Bhubhing Palace.

Other recording in tnorthern Thailand read: 128 micrograms per cubic metre at Lampang Meteorological Office, 128 micrograms per cubic metre at Mae Hong Son Natural Resources and Environment Office and 144 micrograms per cubic metre at Phrae Meteorological Office.

14 districts are also said to be suffering from drought, these include: Om Koi, Chom Thong, Mae Jam, Sanpatong, Hot, Galyani Vadhana, Chai Prakarn, Sankamphang, Hangdong, Doi Lo, Mae On, Mae Rim and Wiang Hang.

The GOOD NEWS IS that the Meteorological Department stated that high pressure from China was approching the northeast of Thailand, resulting in isolated rains over northeastern Thailand and eastern Thailand, reaching Chiang Mai and Central Thailand 15th or 16th March.

Note: It’s a real bitch to start a fire in the rain!
