National –

Thundershowers and isolated heavy rains are expected in most parts of Thailand from March 22nd to the 28th, the Thai Meteorological Department reported today, March 23rd.

According to its announcement, the southerly and the southeasterly winds will strengthen and bring moisture from the South China Sea and the Gulf to the lower North, the lower Northeast, the East, and the Central parts of Thailand. This results in thundershowers with gusty winds and isolated heavy rain in the upper country from March 22nd to the 24th.

During March 25th and the 26th, the southerly and the southeasterly winds will weaken with less rain and isolated thundershowers over upper Thailand. After that, another high-pressure front from China will extend to the upper North, the Northeast, and the South China Sea while hot weather occurs. Thunderstorms and gusty winds are likely in the upper country.

In Southern Thailand, the easterly and the southeasterly winds prevail across the Gulf and the South will strengthen, causing more rain with isolated heavy rain on the 22nd, the 23rd, and the 28th. The strengthening wind and waves about 2 meters high are likely in the upper Andaman Sea, above 2 meters high in thundershowers and 1-2 meters high in the lower Andaman Sea and the Gulf of Thailand, about 2 meters high in thundershowers.

Cyclonic storms over the north Andaman Sea will make landfall on the Myanmar coast on March 22nd, resulting in more rain and isolated heavy to very heavy rains in the North, western part of the Central and the South of Thailand.
