Unseasonal storms predicted for the South

Southern provinces are under warnings from the Thai Meteorological Department following official notifications yesterday.

They’re also predicting that other parts of Thailand will have cooler temperatures during the forecast period.

“Downpours and waves up to four metres are expected in the Gulf of Thailand from Thursday, beginning with Surat Thani, Nakhon Si Thammarat, Phatthalung, Songkhla, Yala, Pattani, Narathiwat, Krabi, Trang and Satun. Other provinces in the southern region are set for heavy rain from Friday.”

It is expected that potential for heavy rain will continue throughout the weekend in all southern provinces with the front slowly moving westward towards the Andaman Sea.

The Department says that the unseasonal storm is the remnants of a tropical depression that washed through The Philippines over Christmas and now coming through south Vietnam before making its way across the Gulf of Thailand.

Forecasters will be watching to see if the depression gathers additional strength as it moves into open waters before reaching the south Gulf coastlines.

The storms are likely to hit the southern Gulf coast from tonight or tomorrow morning and start affecting the Andaman coastal provinces from Friday.

The forecast says “torrential rains could reach as far north as Petchaburi.

“Other parts of the country, including the capital, will see temperatures drop by up to three degrees below average from Thursday.”
