Heavy rains expected across the Kingdom


BANGKOK – The Meteorological Department has announced heavy rain is to be seen across the nation with particular caution voiced for 13 provinces in the north, east and south.

In a report from the Meteorological Department, officials revealed that a low pressure front covering the Kingdom’s north and parts of Myanmar combined with a monsoon from the southwest will result in inclement weather in all parts of Thailand.


The monsoon system will kick up waves in the Andaman Sea and Gulf of Thailand and bring heavy rain to many areas. Provinces that should brace for storms include Chiang Mai, Chiang rai, Phayao, Prae, Nan, Pitsanulok, Petcabun, Chantaburi, Trad, Ranong, Phuket, Krabi and Trang. The mentioned locations may be at risk of flash flooding and forest run off.

Rains will also continue in Bangkok during this period. Small boats in the south are urged to stay at shore.
