The Thailand Meteorological Department said on Saturday (August 1) that a strong southwest monsoon prevails over the Andaman Sea and Thailand while the tropical depression over the South China Sea will be moving through Hai Nan, China.

This will bring isolated heavy to very heavy rain to the North, the Northeast, the East, and the South regions.

People in risky areas should beware of the severe conditions and stay tuned in for weather updates. Wind waves in the Andaman Sea and the Gulf of Thailand are intensifying with waves 2-3 metres high in the Andaman Sea. All ships should proceed with caution and small boats should keep ashore.

The weather forecast for the next 24 hours is as follows:

North: Mostly cloudy with thundershowers in 40 per cent of the areas and isolated heavy rains; temperature lows of 25-27 degrees Celsius and highs of 32-38°C.
