The advisory follows downpours soaking the island overnight, with wet roads and strong winds making driving conditions dangerous.

From Phang Nga northward, southwesterly winds of 20-40km/h and wave heights reaching up to three metres in thundershowers are forecast for the coming days.

For Phuket southward, the southwesterly winds are expected to reach gusts of 20-35km/h with wave heights averaging about two metres, and above two metres in thundershowers, the TMD said in a release issued to today (July 30).

All small boats were urged to stay ashore.

A Singapore Air plane took off in a microburst couple of weeks ago, barreled right through it. I can Believe Thai Air doing that but Singapore Air should have better safety concerns, maybe the radar is out at HKT  tower, too?  YIKES

Is the TMD ever going to fix the Phuket radar so we can see when bad weather is 
 coming. It has been out of service for several weeks now and emailing them about it gets to response.
