Rain eases in upper Thailand with isolated heavy rain in the South


The Thailand Meteorological Department said on Thursday (October 21) that the high-pressure system from China covers the South China Sea while the easterly wind prevails over the Gulf of Thailand, the South and Andaman Sea. Less rain will be likely over the upper part of the country with isolated heavy rain in the South.

The department also mentioned that another high-pressure area from China has extended to cover southern China. It is expected to cover Vietnam and upper Laos today and will cover upper Thailand and the South China Sea in the next few days, causing thunderstorms and gusty winds in upper Thailand.
