As per Skymet Weather, these rains were a result of the cyclonic circulation which is persisting over the southwestern parts of the Gulf of Thailand. As of now also, moderate rains with heavy at a few places are likely to continue over the southeast and southwest regions of Thailand for at least next 2-3 days.

Winds will be moderate to strong and the sea conditions will be rough. Fishermen and small boats are advised to take utmost precaution while venturing into the sea.
