Meanwhile, the southerly and southeasterly winds bring humidity from the Gulf and the South China Sea to cover the lower North, the Northeast, the Central and the East regions, resulting in thundershowers and gusty winds in the areas.

People in upper Thailand should beware of the severe conditions, it warned.

The department also said that the easterly winds prevailing over the Gulf and the South would bring isolated heavy rains to the lower South.
