The Thai Meteorological Department (TMD) has issued a warning for heavy rains and potential flash floods across most regions of the country, with Bangkok expected to experience rain in 60% of its area.

The Thai Meteorological Department forecasts that the southwest monsoon will cover the Andaman Sea, Thailand, and the Gulf of Thailand, creating conditions ripe for thunderstorms and heavy rainfall in certain regions. A low-pressure area over northern Vietnam is also contributing to these conditions. The public is advised to be cautious of potential flash floods and forest runoffs, particularly in mountainous areas and low-lying regions near waterways.

On the Andaman Sea, moderate winds are expected, with waves reaching 1 to 2 metres high, and even higher in areas experiencing thunderstorms. Similarly, the lower Andaman Sea and the Gulf of Thailand will see waves about 1 metre high, rising further during thunderstorms. Mariners are advised to navigate carefully and avoid areas with thunderstorms.

The weather forecast for Thailand from 6am today to 6am tomorrow indicates thunderstorms across various regions:

Northern Region: Thunderstorms are predicted in 40% of the area, with heavy rain in some parts, especially in Chiang Rai, Phayao, Nan, Phitsanulok, and Phetchabun provinces. Temperatures will range from 23 to 27 degrees Celsius at the lowest and 32 to 36 degrees Celsius at the highest.

Northeastern Region: Thunderstorms are expected in 60% of the area, with heavy rain in places such as Nong Khai, Bueng Kan, Udon Thani, Sakon Nakhon, Nakhon Phanom, Yasothon, Amnat Charoen, Si Sa Ket, and Ubon Ratchathani. The region will experience temperatures between 23 and 25 degrees Celsius at the lowest and 32 to 35 degrees Celsius at the highest.
