Although the warning was issued midday yesterday (July 29), staff at the Phuket weather centre confirmed that it was still in effect.

Of note, the main TMD website has yet to issue such a warning for Phuket and elsewhere along the Andaman coast.

As of this morning, the main TMD reported, “During 30 Jul – 4 Aug 2019, the southwest monsoon prevailing over the Andaman Sea and Thailand will strengthen. More rain is likely over over Thailand with isolated heavy rain in the upper North, the Northeast and the East.

The active low pressure over the South China Sea is expected to develop and move to Hinan Island, the Tokin bay and upper Vietnam

“People in the North, the Northeast and the East should beware of severe condition. All ship should proceed with caution and keep away from thundershowers.” (See here.)
