The Thai Meteorological Department (TMD) has issued a weather warning related to tropical “Mun” this evening (Monday), to alert people to approaching heavy rains and strong winds in the South.

 

In the statement, the TMD predicts more rain from 16th – 21st July in the South and East due to a tropical depression approaching from the Pacific, which is likely to gain strength and move through the Philippines into the northern South China Sea, and the strengthening southwest monsoon that prevails over the Andaman Sea and the Gulf of Thailand.

 

“Outbreaks of heavy rain are also possible for those areas. People should be aware of severe conditions that may cause flash floods and heavy water runoff” warned the TMD in its statement.

I guess it is all about how you interpret it.  It does also mean 70% chance of no rain, 🙂

In Udon, luckily we had a wet June. July has been somewhat dry, just 10 mm in the last week. Thai Weather forecast? 10% chance of rain everyday for next week. What a fudge.

ok according to the US Navy, topical storm DANAS is going to move almost due north from its current position.

the low pressure will suck moisture east from the Andaman Sea across southern Thailand.  

Very similar to Tropic storm Mun a few weeks ago.

Here is my chart which is better than anything on the internet. :cheesy:
