Residents of the North and Northeast were warned by the Meteorological Department to brace themselves for a sharp drop in temperature and heavy downpours from today (Thursday) to Sunday.

 

In its first urgent warning about the drop in temperature issued Wednesday, the department said a monsoon trough will move across the lower North, the upper Central and the Northeast regions from Thursday to Sunday before the arrival of a moderate high-pressure system, causing the air temperature to plummet over the North and Northeastern regions. Increased rain is also forecast with some heavy downpours and gusty winds possible on Saturday and Sunday, the warning added.

 

From Monday to Wednesday, the upper part of country will see temperatures dropping by 3-5 degrees Celsius, starting in Northeast then moving to other regions.

Funny, just yesterday BritManToo posted: 

“It's been really wet in Chiang Mai, all the dams (I cycle past) are full.”

 

The graph here -

shows this is a pretty normal year at one reservoir that supplies Chiang Mai with tap water. It's updated daily. Helps if you read Thai.
