Thundershowers and isolated heavy rain forecast across Thailand


The Thailand Meteorological Department said on Saturday (October 16) that the strong southwest monsoon prevails across the Andaman Sea, the South and the Gulf of Thailand while the monsoon trough lies across the Central and the lower Northeast.

Thundershowers are likely over Thailand with isolated heavy to very heavy rain in the lower North, the Northeast, the East and the Central including Bangkok and vicinity. People in risky areas should beware of rain accumulation that may cause overflow and flash flood. 

Waves in the Gulf and the Andaman Sea are 2-3 meters high and over 3 meters high in thundershowers. All ships should proceed with caution and keep off thundershowers, while small boats should keep ashore.
