The rainfall in the first half of the rainy season will be widespread and above average, but the situation is expected to return to normal in the second half.
The Director-General of the Meteorological Bureau, Khun Nattapon Nattasomboon, warns of heavy rains, which could lead to flash flooding in some areas during the second half of the rainy season.
The rainy season ends in October for the north of Thailand, but in the southern region, especially on the east coast, the rainy season lasts until January next year.
