A monsoon trough lies across the upper North of the country and the upper Northeast while a strong southwest monsoon lies across the Andaman Sea, Thailand and the Gulf of Thailand, the meteorological department said on Monday (August 10).

Isolated heavy rains are likely over the North, the Northeast, the East and the west coast of Southern Thailand. People should beware of the severe conditions that may cause flash floods and water runoffs. All ships should proceed with caution, and small boats in the Andaman Sea should stay ashore, the department said.

The department also said that the category 3 tropical storm “Jangmi” over the Pacific is expected to move to Taiwan and make landfall in South Korea with no effect on Thailand.
