Showers, high surf expected next week

PHUKET: The Phuket Marine Office confirmed they have issued no warnings for boats leaving shore due to the recent spate of weather yesterday.

“The waves and wind are still stable and suitable for boating,” said Phuket Marine Chief Surat Sirisaiyas. “However, we have issued a notice urging all boats to proceed with caution as their vision may be impaired during heavy rainstorms.”

The Thai Meteorological Department (TMD) is expecting scattered to fairly widespread thundershowers with isolated heavy rainstorms from September 11-14. The TMD warns that southwesterly winds may reach 20-35 kilometers per hour during the week, and wave heights are expected to reach about 2 meters and more in thundershowers.

“All types of boats, including tourist boats, are proceeding normally. We have experienced no adverse effects from the weather yet,” Mr Surat said.
