The Meteorological Department has warned residents of southern, eastern and lower central provinces on Thursday to brace themselves for heavy rains and strong winds caused by the influence of the monsoon and tropical storm Danas.

 

In its ninth warning related to Danas issued at 5am on Thursday, the department said tropical storm Danas from the north of Luzon in the Philippines is likely to move north north-eastward into the East China Sea on Thursday and Friday.

 

The warning said the influence of the storm coupled with the strong southwest monsoon prevailing across the Andaman Sea and the Gulf of Thailand would unleash heavy rains that may trigger flash flooding and water run-offs.

 

The strong winds would also cause big waves about two to three metres high in the sea so small boats should stay ashore, the warning added.

 

The affected areas are:

 

Thursday, isolated heavy rain possible in the following provinces:

 

Central: Kanchanaburi, Ratchaburi, Lop Buri and Saraburi.

East: Sa Kaeo, Chon Buri, Rayong, Chanthaburi and Trat.

South (east coast): Chumphon, Surat Thani, Nakhon Si Thammarat, Phatthalung, Songkhla, Pattani, Yala and Narathiwat.

South (west coast): Ranong, Phang Nga, Phuket, Krabi, Trang and Satun.

 

Friday, isolated heavy rain possible in:

 

Central: Kanchanaburi, Ratchaburi, Lop Buri and Saraburi.

East: Rayong, Chanthaburi and Trat.

South (east coast): Phetchaburi, Prachuap Khiri Khan, Chumphon, Surat Thani, Nakhon Si Thammarat, Phatthalung and Songkhla.

South (west coast): Ranong, Phang Nga, Phuket, Krabi, Trang and Satun.

There's zero consistency in reporting in this country. Today the TMD is warning of heavy rain across a good swathe of the country, while three days ago on Monday they were warning of a lack of rain, as reported by a Thai Visa news item:

 

"The Ministry of Agriculture and Cooperatives is calling on people everywhere to save water as this year’s rainy season is expected to remain drier than normal. “There won’t be much rain between August and September,” the ministry’s permanent secretary Anan Suwannarat said on Monday, citing information from the Meteorological Department."

The rice on the in laws farm in Surin is dying due to a lack of water as well.
