Heavy rain periods in Phuket until Friday

Published

 on 

The Thai Meteorological Department (TMD) is warning people in most parts of Thailand about “outbreaks of abundant rain and possible flash floods” from today until Friday.
Isolated torrential downpours and gusty winds will especially affect the North, the Northeast and the Central regions, including Bangkok and its vicinity, the East and the South (that’s just about the whole of Thailand!).

The cause of this week’s heavy rains are the monsoonal trough lying across the Central, East and lower Northeast of the country, and a low-pressure cell over central Cambodia pushing in to the monsoon, according to the TMD.

The areas affected on Tuesday and Wednesday include:

The North: Mae Hong Son, Chiang Mai, Chiang Rai, Lamphun, Lampang, Phayao, Phrae, Nan, Uttaradit, Tak, Sukhothai, Kamphaeng Phet, Phitsanulok, Phichit and Phetchabun.

The Northeast: Loei, Chaiyaphum, Khon Kaen, Maha Sarakham, Kalasin, Roi Et, Yasothon, Amnart Charoen, Nakhon Ratchasima, Buri Ram, Surin, Si Sa Ket and Ubon Ratchathani.

Central Thailand: Nakhon Sawan, Uthai Thani, Lop Buri, Saraburi, Sing Buri, Ang Thong, Phra Nakhon Si Ayutthaya, Kanchanaburi, Suphan Buri, Ratchaburi, and Bangkok and its vicinity.

The East: Chachoengsao, Nakhon Nayok, Prachin Buri, Sa Kaeo, Chon Buri, Rayong, Chanthaburi and Trat.

The South: Phetchaburi, Prachuap Khiri Khan, Chumphon, Surat Thani, Ranong, Phangnga, Phuket, Krabi, Trang and Satun.

The areas on Thursday and Friday forecast to be most affected are:

The North: Mae Hong Son, Chiang Mai, Lampang, Lampang, Tak, Sukhothai, Kamphaeng Phet, Phitsanulok and Phichit.

The Northeast: Chaiyaphum, Nakhon Ratchasima, Buri Ram, Surin, Si Sa Ket and Ubon Ratchathani.

Central Thailand: Nakhon Sawan, Chai Nat, Uthai Thani, Kanchanaburi, Suphan Buri, Ratchaburi, and Bangkok and its vicinity.

The East: Chon Buri, Rayong, Chanthaburi and Trat.

The South: Phetchaburi, Prachuap Khiri Khan, Chumphon, Surat Thani, Ranong, Phangnga, Phuket, Krabi, Trang and Satun.

Bottomline, Phuket will have some periods of heavy rain from tonight until Friday.
