PHUKET: The Phuket branch of the Thai Meteorological Department (Phuket Met) has warned that the annual rains that usually arrive with the southwest monsoon may be late this year due to the El Nino global weather pattern.

 

“The southwest monsoon usually begins sometime between mid- to late April or early May, depending on the year, but this year we expect the rains to come late,” Sorot Sawatdiraksa, a meteorologist at the Southern Meteorological Center (West Coast), based at Phuket International Airport, told The Phuket News.

 

“This year El Nino is not so strong, already making the amount of rainfall we have had this year less than in the past few years,” Mr Sorot said.

Is this the same Met Office that issued a warning for summer storms in Phuket a few weeks ago?

By the way, the word Rain has no plural unlike raindrop which can be raindrops.

Phuket can expect much more drastic water shortages ...

 

And not just mains water. Also tankers struggling to fill up with water.

I guess the rain last night was to be expected after the story at the top ofthe page. Hopefully a bit more to come and knock the dust down. the roads need a good drenching to wash the accumulated crap off them- gonna be (even more) dangerous for a bit.
