Heavy rain and thunderstorms continue to affect parts of Thailand, with the Thai Meteorological Department warning of further downpours. Most areas exposed to the southwesterly monsoon are advised to be cautious due to potential danger from the heavy rainfall.

Today’s Thai weather forecast includes a 24-hour warning for Thailand and the Gulf of Thailand. This is due to the southwesterly monsoon covering the Andaman Sea, and the development of low-pressure zones over the northern regions of Vietnam. These conditions will result in thunderstorms and heavy rain across Thailand, predominantly in areas exposed to the monsoon.

For the Andaman Sea and Gulf of Thailand, moderate winds will create waves up to 1 to 2 metres high. In areas experiencing thunderstorms, waves may exceed 2 metres. People travelling by boat in these affected regions should exercise caution and avoid sailing through thunderstorm-infested areas.

Weather forecasts for various regions are as follows:
