Isolated heavy showers are likely in the East and the South as the southwest monsoon prevailing over the country, the Andaman Sea and the Gulf of Thailand will intensify, the Meteorological Department forecast today (September 17).

It advised people in risky areas to beware of the severe conditions and warned small boats to keep ashore as waves whipped up by wind in the Andaman Sea and the gulf will become stronger, reaching 2 metres high and more than 3 metres during thundershowers.

The department also mentioned category 3 tropical storm Noul in the South China Sea. From tomorrow to September 20, this storm is expected to develop into a category 5 typhoon and make landfall over Vietnam before moving to Thailand’s Northeast and North, bringing more showers and torrential rain across the country.
