Isolated heavy rains forecast for North, Northeast, South


A monsoon trough lies across the lower North, the Central region and the Northeast while the southwest monsoon prevails over the Andaman Sea, the South and the Gulf of Thailand and will bring isolated heavy rains to the North, the Northeast and the South, the Thailand Meteorological Department said on Wednesday.
