a) think the stronger winds will be just offshore to the S and SE, which may have gusts to 20-24 kts

4) Latest satellite imagery shows scattered cloudiness over southern Thailand, but there are scattered areas of squalls well offshore to S and SW, and also into Gulf of Thailand

5) Don’t see much or any shower/squall activity around this AM, but do think the chances increase during the afternoon.

a) So watch out for showers and isolated squalls/t-storms popping up in the afternoon, which

b) Some activity may contain local gusts to 25 kts
