Unexpected Rain

Recommended Posts

Posted (edited)

Having our third visit of thunder, lightning, and rain this evening. Really coming down right now.

Absolutely no prediction of any precipitation from the forecasts I've been checking.

But thanks.

Not much down here, it barely wet the ground.

A lot of wind though, dead leaves piled up everywhere this morning.

... yes, same here in the northern outskirts of Phayao City (the posh parts), just a short shower & windy;
but it did cool down, 21 instead of 27 in the morning.
Air looks nice too, still bad though at 160, on par with The Rai and Chiang Mai ... couple of deep breaths still saving you a fag.

 

As for forecasts, guesswork all of them but these here weren't that far off actually, forget hourly but Ventuskys 3h-accumulation makes some sense, the Swiss page does 3h increments by default anyway:

I am heading to naklua soon. I expect it will be very wet there today.

25k north of Chiang Rai we had a downpour at 5pm , much needed , worst part was it gave an excuse for them over the road to burn plastic rubbish !
