Thundershowers, gusty winds forecast across Thailand


A weak high-pressure system from China is presently hovering over Thailand’s Northeast and is expected to cover the Central region and the East on Thursday, while southerly and southeasterly winds are bringing moisture from the South China Sea to Thailand’s lower North, the Central area and the East, causing isolated thundershowers with gusty winds, the Meteorological Department said on Wednesday.

The department added that the northeast monsoon over the Gulf of Thailand and the South is strengthening and will bring more rain to the South.

Here’s the weather forecast for the next 24 hours:
