Rain relief coming for 40 per cent of every region of country: Meteorological Department

The Meteorological Department on Monday predicted rain in 40 per cent of areas around the country in the next day amid the on-going drought.

 

In its forecast issued at 6am for the next 24 hours, the department said the rains would be unleashed because of the influence of the moderate southwest monsoon that prevails across the Andaman Sea and upper Thailand, as well as the low-pressure cell covering upper Vietnam.

 

For the North, most of the rain is expected to fall in Mae Hong Son, Chiang Mai, Chiang Rai, Phayao, Phrae, Nan, Phetchabun, Phitsanulok, Sukhothai, Kamphaeng Phet and Tak provinces. The forecast said some 40 per cent of the region would see rainfall.

 

The forecast added that about 40 per cent of the Bangkok region would also see rainfall.

 

The Northeast would experience rain in 40 per cent of its areas including Loei, Nong Bua Lamphu, Udon Thani, Khon Kaen, Nong Khai, Bueng Kan, Sakon Nakhon, Nakhon Phanom, Nakhon Ratchasima, Si Sa Ket, and Ubon Ratchathani.

 

The department said some 30 per cent of the central province area would have rain, with the highest falls in Ratchaburi, Nakhon Pathom, Kanchanaburi, Suphan Buri, Ayutthaya, Uthai Thani, Chai Nat and Nakhon Sawan provinces.

 

The eastern region would also experience rain over 40 per cent of its area, with the heaviest downpours in Rayong, Chanthaburi and Trat.

 

The department said both sides of the southern coast would experience rain in 30 per cent of their territory, including Phetchaburi, Prachuap Khiri Khan, Chumphon, Surat Thani, Ranong, Phang Nga and Phuket.

We were supposed to have a heavy storm and possible flooding out of this last storm that just passed but we didn't even get a single drop. Thai meteorology at its finest.

How dare they!!!

 

Everybody knows that the arrival of rains is solely due to rain dances, the offerings of pig heads to the deities, and the stuffed toys that were paraded in cages around towns and villages. Ask people who participated and they will tell you!

In respect of Pattaya I never ever saw a weather report that was at least somehow accurate. Does anybody know one?

We have a microclimate that makes forecasts unreliable. It frequently rains nearby but not here.

 

I note that Chonburi is not included in the list of provinces given anyway.

For once, in our area they were right. 60 KM North of Udon Thani we just had around 20 minutes of very light rain, sun now drying it up. Good job they don't go into any details like the amount of rainfall predictions.
