The Thai Meteorological Department‘s latest weather forecast for the next 24 hours, predicts heavy rainfall and strong winds in several regions due to the influence of the southwest monsoon covering the Andaman Sea, Thailand and the Gulf of Thailand, combined with a low-pressure system covering parts of upper Vietnam and the Gulf of Tonkin. The public is advised to remain cautious and prepare for potential hazards caused by thunderstorms and strong winds, as well as maintain their health as the weather conditions change.

In the Andaman Sea, moderate winds are causing waves ranging from 1 to 2 metres high. In areas affected by thunderstorms, waves can reach heights of over 2 metres. Boat operators in the Andaman Sea are advised to exercise caution and avoid travelling in areas experiencing thunderstorms during this period.
