A low pressure area covers the upper portions of the North while the moderate southwest monsoon prevails across the Andaman Sea and Thailand is weakening, the Thailand Meteorological Department said.

 

 

Heavy rains are forecast for some parts of the North, the upper Northeast, the East, Central and the South regions. People should beware of the severe conditions that may cause flash floods.

 

Isolated thundershowers and isolated heavy rains are forecast for Bangkok with minimum temperature at 24-26 degrees Celsius and maximum temperature 34-37°C. Southwesterly winds blow at 10-30 km/hr.

 

The monsoon trough lies across the upper North and the upper Northeast on May 30-31, while the moderate southwest monsoon prevails over the Andaman Sea and Thailand. More rains are expected with isolated heavy rains in the areas.

 

From June 1-5, the southwest monsoon prevails over the Andaman Sea and Thailand while the monsoon trough will weaken. Less rains are expected in Thailand.

Average pay in the US, $57,000 and they're wrong the majority of the time also.

I use a weather radar app, RAINVIEWER, which can give a fair idea of what 'may' happen in the next 3 to 6 hours. 

I find it very useful. You can track back a few hours so you can fairly sure of the direction of rain clouds.

There's been heavy rain the last 2 nights here, east of Udon. Our 3 ponds are full already.

That's what I'm waiting on. Enough rain to fill the pond so I can put fish in it. We've been getting some rain here in south Sisaket province to help with watering the grass and trees, but not enough to do anything for the pond.

Historically Udon Province gets about 1.3 metres of rain a year. The last couple have barley broken the 1000mm mark.

 

This year so far has seen 150mm. There are four months of wet ahead. Has to be some serious, consistent rainfalls to get anywhere near average.

 

Big downpours don't cut the mustard. Much of it runs off. Need, on average, 20/30mm every third day until mid way through October.

 

IMO, the weather in Isaan is changing and in 20 years time the rain measure will be around 1000mm (1 metre) a year. Must conserve water. Can't rely on the Mekong doing its stuff any more. What with world weather changes and China in control up-river.

I certainly seem to spend more time each year topping up the pool, then I do sending water to the garden to lower its level.

So to sum up, some rain,  somewhere, then a lot of rain in a few places, then no rain anywhere.  Very useful as a wet season report.  My cat could have come up with that forecast. As my old boss used to say, meteorologists are the only profession that can get it wrong most of the time and still be promoted. I would perhaps add astrologers, as there isn't a whole lot of difference between the two.  

Best be mindful not to let said animal outside, or you may find yourself having to deal with a seriously wet pussy.

Pretty much sums it up.. there is rain activity around but if you follow it on Ventusky (Windy.com if you prefer) you will see that there is a lot of rain activity around but not easy to see just where it will fall.... if you skip forward to 7 PM you will see a lot more activity coming in from the SE....  https://www.ventusky.com/?p=14.5;110.1;4&l=rain-3h

Yes, what it shows makes it impossible to predict exactly where it will fall. Hell, in the US, where you have probably the best meteorologists and radar in the world tracking severe weather people are still killed every spring by extreme storms.
