BANGKOK — When is rain news during the rainy season? When great skies full of the stuff are expected to drench the capital, such as are forecast for Thursday through the weekend.

The daily showers born of the southwest monsoon will be intensified as a front moves across the nation toward the gulf and Andaman Sea, promising heavy rain throughout the greater metropolitan area from Thursday through Sunday.

Heading out to sea during those four days? Best reconsider as rough-seas warnings have been issued.
