Isolated heavy rains forecast for the North, East and west coast of South


The Thailand Meteorological Department said on Friday that the southwest monsoon prevails over the Andaman Sea, Thailand and the Gulf of Thailand.

Thundershowers continue over the western portion of Thailand with isolated heavy rains in the North, the East and the South’s west coast.

People should beware of the severe conditions, the department said.

Waves in the upper Andaman Sea are 2-3 metres high and more than three metres high during thundershowers. All ships should proceed with caution and small boats should keep ashore.
