Wet weekend on the way for many parts of the country

The Thai Meteorological Department is warning people around the country to prepare for some heavy rains through the weekend.

The department says the heavy rains are being fueled by a moderate high-pressure pressure system from China that has spread over upper Laos and Vietnam.

At the same time, a monsoonal trough lies across the lower north, the Upper Central, the East and the Lower Northeast, while a Southwest monsoon prevails over the Andaman Sea, the South and the Gulf. All the factors will contribute to more rain.

The department says heavy rains will come with gusty winds and people in some areas should be prepared for possible flooding and mudslides.
