PHUKET: Rain and wind generated by the southwest monsoon will continue to hit Phuket today (July 23), tomorrow and perhaps Thursday, says the Thai Meteorological Department. Intermittent heavy rain showers can be expected, along with strong winds.

Last night’s storms dumped 90.4 mm of rain on Phuket International Airport, 41.6 on Phuket city, 43.5 on Kamala and 11.5 on Karon. Despite the heavy rain overnight, however, no serious flooding was reported on the island.
Small boat and fishing vessels are urged not to set sail, and waves of two to three metres in height will make swimming in the sea particularly dangerous.
