The Thailand Meteorological Department said on Saturday (August 8) that a monsoon trough lies across the North and the Northeast and there is a low-pressure cell over the South China Sea. Meanwhile the moderate southwest monsoon across the Andaman Sea and the Gulf of Thailand is strengthening.

Continuous rainfall is forecast for the whole country with isolated heavy rain in some areas of the North, the Northeast and the East. People should beware of heavy rains and accumulated rainfalls, the department cautioned.

The department also said that wind waves in the upper Andaman Sea and the Gulf of Thailand were intensifying. All ships should proceed with caution and small boats should keep ashore, the department advised. Additionally, the active low-pressure cell in the east of the Philippines is developing into a category 2 storm and the tropical depression is likely to move up to Taiwan.
