Weather Alert: Phuket Boats Warned to Avoid Strong Gusts

Thursday, May 17, 2012
PHUKET: Storms with strong winds are expected to lash Phuket between today and Monday, meteorologists predict.

Gusts of up to 50 knots are expected, with the Bureau of Meteorology advising small boats not to put to sea.

There's a 60 percent chance of rain between now and Monday, meaning that shopping and other indoor activities are likely to be more popular with Phuket tourists between now and then.

The bureau in Chiang Mai has also warned of storms and strong winds through out the week, with downpours and gusting winds uprooting trees and toppling billboards overnight.

Flooding is likely in some areas of Thailand. If the rain persists, Phuket is likely to face landslip warnings.

A high-pressure ridge is covering the upper northeast and a moderate southwest monsoon is prevailing over the Andaman Sea and the Gulf of Thailand.
