The Thai Meteorological Department (TMD) has forecast heavy rain to continue across most of Thailand until Tuesday (July 25), and has warned people to watch out for flash floods and floodwaters.
The department said the monsoonal trough, which covers most parts of Thailand, will cause downpours in the northeast and east, as well as on the west coast of the southern region of the country. The situation is expected to improve when the trough moves to other countries in the region on Wednesday (July 26) or Thursday (July 27).

TMD has also issued a warning for severe weather conditions that could cause flash flooding and flooding, especially along waterways and low-lying areas. Residents are advised to exercise caution and remain vigilant during storms. Drivers should also use extreme caution on the roads to ensure their safety and the safety of others.
In addition to heavy rainfall, the Andaman Sea and the upper part of the Gulf are expected to experience strong winds and storms. Small boat owners in these areas are urged to stay ashore during this period and keep informed of the latest weather forecasts.
