Isolated heavy rains forecast for upper Thailand, South west coast


The North, the Northeast, the East and the South’s west coast will experience isolated heavy rains as a monsoon trough lies across the North and the upper Northeast while a strong southwest monsoon prevails across the Andaman Sea and the Gulf of Thailand, the Meteorological Department said on Thursday.
