More rain on the way

PHUKET: Parched Phuket can expect more rain this afternoon (Tuesday) after a heavy shower of about 30 minutes yesterday, mostly around Thalang and the airport.

The director of the Southern Meteorological Center (West Coast), Vichit Phuangsombat, told the Gazette, “This [rain] is following the normal pattern of the rainy season in the South – the rain usually starts by the end of March or the beginning of April.”

Historically, May is the wettest month in Phuket.
