Whats with the weather?

Recommended Posts

Too early for cool season except in the far north.

For most of Thailand usually have to wait for New Year with the odd exceptions.

The weather worldwide is going through a change,we go by the seasons but nature does its own course mainly by the planets think of the bible the story about the bloke who had a dream of 7 fat cows then 7 skinny cows,it was a prophecy of 7 good years then 7 bad,dick ens wrote a Christmas Carol when Europe was going through a mini ice age,that's why when bookies take bets on a white Christmas in the uk snow has to fall in the weather centre in london at 12 noon & they know it's not gonna snow,I been all over the world & seen unusual weather for the time of year,the aborigines could predict the weather a thousand years in advance & also had controlled bush burning till the aussies government stopped em doing it then how many wild bushfire have they had,I presume the native Americans had the same idea,see what's happening in california

Loy Kratong is the official start of cool season, that's in 3 days time.

But still the wettest monsoon I've noticed in 10 years (Chiang Mai).

That’s not true because Loy Kratong is a lunar holiday some years it’s more than 3 weeks earlier than this year. For example last year it was November 3rd.

I do not know where abouts in Khon Kaen you are Kenny202 but I am on the western side of town just inside the ring road and we have had the hot temperature but we have not had any afternoon storms. I came back from a day trip out to Yang Talat on Friday and I ran through 2 small showers and that was all there was. Nothing at home, I had to water the plants.

Not sure if most of Isaan is doomed. As far as I am concerned with my grass seed crops, we had too much rain in July-September. The crops are in the Ubon, Roi-et and Mukdahan areas. Day after day of rainy days. Not huge down-pours but overcast and cloudy days with little bright sunshine. As such, seedlings rotted and those that establishedm developed small seed heads, leading to low seed yields, The rice crops to me look excellent. I am in your area Santisuk every 4-5 weeks and all rice crops, cassava and sugar-cane crops look great. Here at my house in Ubon, continual rain in July-September lead to my lawns being waterlogged for days and days which resulted in the death of most of my good lawn grasses. 

Agree current rice crop mostly OK from first half normal rainy season. I'm more concerned for crops going forward - water table has not received its normal top up south of the Mun and reservoirs are low. I didn't say or even imply that all of Isaan is doomed Michael - I'm aware that there's been a lot of flooding along the Thai side of Mekong for instance. Have always only talked about the Eastern part of lower Isaan and I observe the Mun river levels a lot cos we tend to hash around it!

Absolutely no rain for the month of October in my patch of Phrae! I blame it on the government along with 23 baht for the dollar and no lasagne in the shops!

I am on the inland side of Chonburi city and this is the wettest year since 2011, the year a large part of Thailand was under water. Three years ago I built a sprinkler system all around the garden, haven't used it since. Doubt if we have had a dry spell longer than 6 weeks in that time. When I first came here,2008, the rain was switched off in November and turned back on in April, sometimes as late as June. Been a bit desperate for water some years as we have no mains supply.

I brought my sister over from the UK for a visit and thought that now would be a good time, with cool(er) weather and low humidity. Instead, she's been met with almost Thai summer conditions here in Kalasin province. Bugger.

Our well still delivers (from about 40 meters below). But a good shower once in a while would be nice. And mid-days/early afternoons are still too hot to work. 😰
