Thundershowers and gusty winds ease through most of Thailand


The Thailand Meteorological Department said on Tuesday that the weakening southerly and the southeasterly winds across upper Thailand would result in a decrease in thundershowers and gusty winds in some areas.

People should beware of the severe conditions, the department said, while warning farmers of damage to crops.

Meanwhile, the easterly and the southeasterly winds prevailing across the Andaman Sea, the South and the Gulf of Thailand, will bring scattered thundershowers in the areas.
