The weather warning, issued by TMD Director-General Nattapon Nattasomboon earlier today (Nov 11), cautioned local resident to beware “Heavy to very Heavy Rains and Strong Wind-Waves in South"

“The strong high-pressure system from China covers upper Thailand with cool with gusty winds. People should keep healthy due to the variable weather,” the notice read.

“The strong northeast monsoon prevails across the Gulf and the South of Thailand with heavy to very heavy rains in some areas.

“Meanwhile, stronger winds are likely in both the Gulf and the Andaman Sea. Waves 2-3 meters high in the Gulf, more than 3 meters high in thundershowers, and 1-2 meters high in the Andaman Sea,” are expected, the notice continued.

“People should beware of the conditions that may cause flash floods and overflows. Residents along the Gulf shore should watch for inshore surge. All ships should proceed with caution, and small boats in the Gulf keep ashore,” the notice added.

Stay healthy due to the variable weather. Stick to providing the weather forecast I think .....

Heavy rains moved in at about midnight Nov 12/13  here in Thalang,  34 hours after the bulletin was issued.  No winds as of yet 4:30 am, so yeah,  timelines should be included in weather forecasts. Duh.

To some of us it is obvious they mean from 11th Nov since they mention that date specifically.. The term 'wary' is much more appropriate than 'safe', or even healthy.

What's missing from this bulletin is WHEN to expect this weather. And I believe the term 'safe' would be more  appropriate than 'healthy'.
