More rains forecast across country with isolated heavy showers in some areas


Expect more rains with isolated heavy to very heavy showers in the North, the Northeast, the East and the South’s west coast as a monsoon trough lies across the upper North and upper Northeast, while the southwest monsoon which prevails over the country, the Andaman Sea and the Gulf of Thailand is stronger, the Meteorological Department said on Wednesday.

The department also mentioned that the active low-pressure cell over the upper South China Sea is expected to move into Vietnam from July 7-19 and in turn head over to Thailand’s North and Northeast, ushering in more rains.
