The warning, issued for tomorrow through next Monday (March 14-18) is for Ranong, Phang Nga, Phuket, Trang and Satun.

“A high pressure system from China will cover upper Thailand and the South China Sea. In Thailand, temperatures will be hot, which can cause summer storms in many areas,” the warning said.

“The Southern West Coast region (along the Andaman coast) will have thunderstorms. These storms will be very windy and heavy rain, and possibly hail in some areas,” the warning added.

The Phuket office of the TMD (“Phuket Met”) urged people to beware of any impending storms and to avoid open areas where people may be exposed.

“Beware taking cover under big trees, and poorly constructed buildings and big signs and billboards.” the warning added.

“All people are urged to please closely follow all announcements by the Thai Meteorological Department,” the warning added.
