Sukkumbhand said based on Friday's hydrology forecast, the Chao Phraya wil likely rise to more than 2.50 meters, triggering overflow in several areas.
High tides will exacerbate the water level from Saturday to Monday.
Yesterday saw the Chao Phraya River peaked at 2.42 meters.
The city administration has been implementing the emergency evacuation order covering four districts, Don Mueang, Sai Mai, Bang Phlat and Thawee Wattana, particularly Thammasop area.
The inundation in Sai Mai rose additional 15 centimeters in the last 24 hours. The floodwater in Thawee Wattana rose additional 16 centimeters.
Thawee Wattana's flood defence is weakest at two major canals, Mawawat and Thawee Wattana, where there is no permanent levee to deter the water flow.
In Bang Phlat, the inundation varies from one meter to 70 centimeters.
Due to rising inundation, services, including relief operations, at Dom Mueang district office has been relocated to Lak Si district office.
