Continuous rainfall forecast across Thailand, isolated heavy showers in some areas


The country will experience continuous rainfall, with isolated heavy showers in the North, the Northeast, the Central region, the East and the South’s west coast amid a monsoon trough even as a moderate southwest monsoon prevails over the Andaman Sea, the South and the Gulf of Thailand, the Meteorological Department said on Thursday.

It advised people in risky areas to beware of rain water accumulation that may cause flash floods.

The department also advised all ships to proceed with caution and keep away from areas with thundershowers as waves in the Andaman Sea are 1-2 metres high and above 2 metres during thundershowers.
