Isolated heavy rains forecast for North, Northeast, South


Don’t get caught in an unexpected shower: isolated heavy rains are forecast for the North, the Northeast and the South as a monsoon trough lies across these regions while the southwest monsoon prevails across the Andaman Sea and the Gulf of Thailand, the Meteorological Department said on Thursday.

It advised all ships to proceed with caution while small boats should keep ashore as waves in the Andaman Sea are 2-4 metres high and above 4 metres during thundershowers.

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