More rains forecast for Thailand’s Northeast, East and South


BANGKOK, 22 June 2015 – More heavy rains are expected in the Northeast, East and South of Thailand as monsoons gain strength over the weekend.

Tropical storm Kujira, which is gaining momentum near China’s Hainan province, is moving closer towards the South of China, bringing steady rains to Thailand’s Northeast until June 25. Those heading to Hainan and Hong Kong are advised to closely follow weather updates.

The southwestern monsoon covering the Andaman Sea and the Gulf of Thailand is strengthening, generating wind and rains. Small boats should be kept ashore as strong winds will generate high tidal waves during June 22-27.

Parts of Bangkok and its vicinity will become cloudy and face thunderstorms. The average temperature ranges from 33-36 degree Celsius.
