Such storms could raise water levels in the cave again and complicate the supply missions or any potential extrication, if one was needed.
None of them have experience in scuba diving let alone cave diving.
The joyous news that the soccer team was found alive has been coupled with vexation over what to do next.
There is no simple way to save the trapped team.
Areas of the cave remain submerged and navigating claustrophobic passages in murky rushing waters risks panic, even if the boys have ample equipment, expert support and a crash-course in how to dive.
It could take months for the floodwaters to recede enough for the team to get out. "We have taken care of those boys following the doctor's recommendation".
The comments come as it is announced that police will look into whether the 25-year-old coach of the football team could face legal action for leading them into the cave, according to Khaosoenglish.com.
It is believed they entered the cave on 23 June when it was dry and sudden heavy rains blocked the exit.

"I want to tell him I'm still here waiting", Kieng Khamleu, said of her son Pornchai Khamleung inside the cave.
The current flooding situation means the boys would have to dive, which rescue experts have said could be extremely unsafe.
Volanthen told the Sunday Times in 2013 that cave diving is not the pursuit of those who crave thrills.
Christian Stenner of the Alberta/BC Cave Rescue Service said coaching the young men to swim out of the cave could prove to be risky under conditions that would challenge even an experienced diver. "Then the boys will come out to see you guys", he said.
All 12 boys and their coach were found alive in the cave where they went missing over a week ago and all were said to be in relatively good health.
"This is going to be a complicated rescue". He said it is unknown when an extraction could be attempted, but it is unlikely to be Wednesday.
The boys and the coach are no longer alone. Kamolroj Ekwattanakij, a communication officer with the Thai Navy Seal, told CNN that divers also brought the weakened boys food, mainly grilled pork, sticky rice and milk.
No one knows exactly when the boys and their coach will get out, or by what method. Rescuers are studying how to extract them safely.
The good news awaited by millions of anxious Thais and others outside the country was finally broken by Chiang Rai governor Narongsak Osoththanakorn, who announced it at a media conference near the rescue site at about 11pm.
