Thunder showers, heavy rain and gusts are forecast for most of Thailand on October 5-6, the Thailand Meteorological Department announced on Saturday (October 5).

The department attributed the weather conditions to a high-pressure ridge from China that has moved down to the upper northeastern region and South China sea, creating a southeast trough passing through upper part of Thailand and Gulf of Thailand, causing thunder showers, heavy rain and strong gusts in most part sof Thailand including Bangkok and its perimeter.

The department warned people to avoid staying outdoors, under large trees or in unstable buildings during heavy rains and gusts.
