Hot day forecast for Bangkok, upper Thailand with a few thundershowers


The weaker southwest monsoon prevailing over the Andaman Sea and the Gulf of Thailand would result in lesser rains throughout the country, the Thailand Meteorological Department said on Friday.

The Andaman Sea and the Gulf are also likely to see weaker winds and waves.

Meanwhile tropical storm “Choi-Wan” in the upper South China Sea would tend to move north towards the southern part of Taiwan on Friday, with no effect on Thailand, the department said.
