All parts of Laos will experience some rain and thunderstorm throughout the week, according to a recent report from the Department of Meteorology and Hydrology.
The department issued a report on Monday stating that the hot air pressure has weakened over the country, and now a cold air pressure from China will blanket Laos, increasing the amount of rain, lighting, and thunderstorm in some areas from afternoons to well into the evenings.
The northern provinces of Phongsaly, Houaphanh, and Xieng Khouang will experience cold weather in the morning, with mild to average rain, lighting, and hailstorms, and temperatures that vary from 14 to 32 degrees Celsius.
The northwest provinces of Laos, including Oudomxay, Luang Namtha, Luang Prabang, and Xayaboury, will be hot during the day but will see rain with some lightning, hailstorms, and strong winds, with temperatures hovering between 22 to 41 degrees Celsius.
This week, Vientiane Capital will experience hot weather, rain, and storms in some areas, with a minimum temperature of 23-25 degrees Celsius and a maximum of 36-40 degrees Celsius.
Meanwhile, the southern provinces will experience hot to extremely scorching weather, but will also see rain, hailstorm, and thunderstorm in some areas. The minimum temperature will be around 25-28 degrees Celsius while the maximum could reach as high as 37-40 degrees Celsius.
Lao Department of Meteorology and Hydrology has urged residents across the country to monitor the weather condition before stepping outdoors and take extra care to keep their property and livestock safe.
