Minor flooding across Chao Fa East Rd resulted in slight traffic delays and warnings from police for motorists to exercise caution during the downpours.

The road from Thepkrasattri Rd to the airport saw the westbound lanes down to one lane due to water across the road. Traffic cones were placed on the road to warn drivers and local disaster teams have set up pumps at the scene to remove the floodwater.

The TMD today warned of thunderstorms and isolated heavy rain across 60% of the Andaman coast provinces.

Wind speeds during thunderstorms are forecast to reach up to 35km/h and waves are to reach up to two metres tall.

While the maximum temperature in the South is still forecast to reach anywhere from 32-35°C, in Phuket this morning it was a cool 28.5°C

The heavy weather is forecast to continue through to next Thursday (June 4), the TMD noted in its forecast.
