Keep your brolly at hand as the rainy season still hasn’t passed: isolated heavy to very heavy rain and strong wind is likely over upper Thailand, while strong southwesterly winds prevail over the South and the Gulf and will bring isolated heavy showers there, the Meteorological Department said on Thursday.

Meanwhile, category 3 tropical storm Molave has downgraded into a category 2 tropical depression over Ubon Ratchathani and is expected to further downgrade into category 1.

The department warned people in risky areas to beware of severe conditions that may cause flash floods and water runoff. It also advised small boats to stay ashore while all ships should proceed with caution and keep away from areas with thundershowers in the Andaman Sea and the Gulf as waves are expected to be 2-3 metres high and above 3 metres in thundershower areas.

Here’s the weather forecast for the next 24 hours:
