Thundershowers and heavy rains forecast for most parts of the country


The Thailand Meteorological Department said on Friday that a monsoon trough lies across the North, the Northeast and upper Central region, while a rather strong southwest monsoon prevails over the Andaman Sea, Thailand and the Gulf of Thailand.

Thundershowers with isolated heavy to very heavy rains are possible in all regions of Thailand. People should beware of the severe conditions and flash floods, the department said.

Waves 2-3 metres high are expected in the upper Andaman Sea and above three metres high in thundershowers. All ships should proceed with caution and small boats should keep ashore, the department said.
