Downpours expected in central and north, Phuket forecast includes sunshine and rain

Rain in the central and north of Thailand but more sunshine in the south, at least until the weekend.

Rain, heavy at times, is set to sweep across swathes of Thailand as it enters the wettest time of the year, on average.

The northern region is likely to bear the brunt of the downpours for the next few days, according to the Thai Meteorological Department, while Bangkok and central areas can expect a relatively drier day, with only a 40% chance of rain. Rain is expected to return to the Andaman coast on the weekend.

The southwest monsoon, which brought rain to the southern Andaman coastlines and parts of the Gulf of Thailand, is expected to weaken. Easterly and northeasterly winds are dominating at the moment in the lower part of the eastern region.

“Authorities are urging the public to exercise caution due to the potential hazards associated with heavy rainfall. Flash floods and forest runoff are significant concerns, especially in areas close to water bodies and low-lying regions.”

Phuket’s weather will continue to be sunny with light to moderate winds over the next few days, sparkled with some short bouts of rain. Rain will return over the weekend for the southern island and Andean region.
