Pattaya braces for strong winds and rain in the coming week

The Thai Meteorological Department has issued a weather alert for Thailand’s May 29–30 due to heavy rain and strong gusts.

On May 29, portions of the northeastern, eastern (Pattaya and Jomtien), and southern regions are expected to see heavy to very heavy rainfall before it spreads to the rest of the country on May 30. Residents have been cautioned by authorities to be aware of the risks associated with thunderstorms because they can produce strong winds, lightning, and hail.

Strong winds might damage vulnerable infrastructure as well as bring down trees and electrical lines. In places where thunderstorms deliver heavy rainfall, flooding and landslides are probable.

The Andaman Sea and Gulf of Thailand are expected to have large waves on May 29–30. The Andaman Sea, the Gulf of Thailand, and small boats in the Andaman Sea have all received warnings from authorities to travel carefully and steer clear of thunderstorms.

Mawar, a typhoon that transitioned from a tropical storm to a typhoon, is now located in the Pacific Ocean and is expected to continue northwest rather than toward the South China Sea and pass through the Philippines, according to the Thai Meteorological Department.

The Joint Typhoon Warning Center and Japan Meteorological Agency issued a warning that Mawar might become a “super typhoon” during the weekend due to an increase in the Pacific Ocean’s sea surface temperature. However, the TMD also predicted that Mawar would become depressed and would not travel to Thailand.
