The Meteorological Department today warned people in many parts of the country, including Bangkok, to brace for more thunderstorms this week.
For Bangkok, the weather forecast bureau said thunder shower is anticipated to cover 80% of areas, including surrounding provinces from today, with heavy rains in some areas.
It said heavy to very heavy rains are anticipated from today until end of the month in the northern, lower northeastern, central, eastern and southern regions.
For people living in low plains close to mountains and hills, they are warned of dangers from landslides as heavy to very heavy rains are anticipated.
For fishermen, they are advised not to sail into the Andaman Sea and the Gulf of Thailand for the next few days as high waves are expected as a depression that is blowing pass the upper Bengal Bay is moving to cover Myanmar.
Meanwhile the westerly monsoon that is blanketing the Andaman Sea is also strengthening, thus causing heavy to very heavy rains in these parts until end of the month.
