Thundershowers are likely over the upper part of the country while isolated heavy rains and gusty wind are possible in the Northwest, the lower Central region and the East, including Bangkok and its vicinity, the Thailand Meteorological Department announced on Tuesday (October 15).

The department attributed the weather conditions to moderate a high-pressure system covering the North, the Northeast, the upper Central and the South China Sea. The easterly wind prevailing over Thailand, the Gulf and the Andaman Sea is strengthening.

The department also forecast more rain with isolated heavy downpours for the South. Moderate winds will whip up the waves in the lower Gulf up to 2 meters and above during thundershowers. All ships should proceed with caution and avoid stormy conditions.
