Rains ease across country but North to see isolated heavy showers


Less rain is likely across Thailand but the North will still experience isolated heavy showers as the southwest monsoon prevailing over the country, the Andaman Sea and the Gulf of Thailand is weakening, the Meteorological Department said on Thursday.

It warned people in the North especially to beware of severe conditions that may cause flash floods.

The department also advised all ships to proceed with caution and small boats to stay ashore as waves in the upper Andaman Sea are 2-3 metres high and more than 3 metres during thundershowers.

As for tropical storm “Lupit”, the department said it is presently over the coast of southern China and expected to move towards Taiwan from August 6 to 7 but will not affect Thailand.

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

North: Thundershowers in 70 per cent of the area with isolated heavy rains; temperature lows of 23-25 degrees and highs of 30-34 degrees Celsius.
