Thailand’s wet week, and what about Phuket?

Phuket monsoon rain
Phuket monsoon wet season

Statistically, it’s the wettest time of the year. So it should be no surprise that Thailand is going to have a wet week ahead.

In an announcement today, the Meteorological Department issued a warning for heavy rainfall affecting 32 of Thailand’s 77 provinces. It’s raining in Bangkok today and there is an 80% chance that it will rain on most other days this week around the capital.

The weather forecast for the next 24 hours is shaped by the convergence of the monsoonal trough in the northern and northeastern regions with the southwest monsoon that extends over the Andaman Sea, Thailand, and the Gulf of Thailand.

Additionally, a low-pressure area situated off the central coast of Vietnam is expected to bring substantial rainfall to various parts of the northern, northeastern, central and eastern regions of the country. Today’s Ventusky screenshot shows much of Thailand surrounded by rain and storm activity.

Residents in these affected areas are strongly advised to remain vigilant for potential flash floods, particularly in low-lying regions near rivers and valleys.

Along the upper Andaman Sea and upper Gulf of Thailand, waves are projected to reach heights of 1-2 meters or even higher in areas with thunderstorms. In contrast, the lower Andaman Sea and lower Gulf of Thailand are expected to experience waves around 1 meter high. Small vessels are cautioned to navigate with care and to avoid sailing in areas with thunderstorms.

Phuket’s forecast is for increasing chance of rain today and then rain on Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday and Friday this week.
