The rainy season was hit and miss in May and June up here east of Udon  Heavy rain was followed by dry spells of up to a week. Now the dry spell has lasted this entire month so far.

Same here in Sisaket, and that for the third year in a row.

 

Last year, we were "saved" by two weeks of torrential rain in early September, brought by a series of depressions coming from the Pacific...nothing to do with the regular monsoon.

 

It seems that after having lost permanently the winter season, we are about to lose the rain season too...

The headline could just as easily be "Record Levels of Drought in the North". This year's "rainy season" has been a joke so far. Mid-July farmers should be planting rice fields and other essential crops, but reservoirs and canals are painfully low. No water = no crops = no money for millions of farmers and their families. Word-up - - - Climate change is REAL.

Google search "Isolated showers or thunderstorms are loners, individual events well removed from any others and affecting less than about 5 percent of the area. You will often hear the terms “scattered” or “isolated” in weather forecasts in the summer, when the nature of showers and thunderstorms is, indeed, scattered or isolated"

So basically, they are the same thing?

Has anyone ever denied this? the conundrum for most is that we are told by those who make money from it, is that it is man made, these are the same people that are able to ignore the fact that the climate has been changeable since time began, current changes are directly effected by the weakening magnetic field - a natural event we have no control over.

The weather West of Udon certainly been strange this year, one decent rainfall in the past month, despite lots of optimistic weather forecasting! 😲

Could not agree  more ,I am in Lopburi ,last weekend 21 mm that was the first for a week since then nothing ,crops of maize are struggling ,a lot  will get ploughed in, one dairy farmer is cutting  his 40 rie of maize  and is feeding it to his cows .

Not a good year  for farmers yet again.

And before every one writes ,the government will not help the maize farmers ,the local Or-Bor-Tor,  local  government office , has helped in the past, no where enough  covers about  30% of costs ?,but not this  year subbing COVID-19 has used all the reserves.
