Thailand is bracing for rain and flooding again

Be prepared for accumulating rains that could trigger flashfloods, according to a warning from the Thai Meteorological Department that will be familiar to everyone who lives in the country. Thailand’s rainy season is still going strong. Expect strong to very heavy rainfall across the country’s northeast, central, east, and southern regions from tomorrow, May 27, to Tuesday, May 31 (Tuesday). The current Monsoon in Thailand’s southwest is forecast to intensify.

Ships in the upper Gulf and the Andaman Sea should exercise caution and avoid locations where thundershowers are expected, according to the department. A yacht capsized in choppy waters in Thailand’s southern province of Krabi earlier this week. The yacht’s three guests, who had climbed into a tiny dinghy, were rescued by a fishing boat.

After ten hours of severe rain, Bangkok flooded in numerous parts last week. Chatuchak, Lak Si, Don Mueang, and Lat Phrao are the most impacted places. The water level rose to more than 1 metre in several spots. Traffic delays were created by the floods, particularly at Ratchayothin Intersection and Ratchadapisek – Lat Phrao Intersection.

Expect strong winds and big waves in Thailand’s Andaman Sea and Gulf, as they have been over the past month. Waves in the Andaman will be 2-3 meters high, while waves in the upper Gulf of Thailand will be 2 meters high. Waves are likely to exceed 3 meters during thundershowers.
