Heavy Rain Warning: Relentless Downpour Forecast for East


Recommended Posts


Today, the Meteorological Department has issued an urgent heavy rain warning for the eastern provinces of Rayong, Chanthaburi, and Trat. Residents and travellers have been advised to brace for possible flooding as relentless downpours are anticipated.


A powerful southwest monsoon, extending across the Andaman Sea, Thailand, and the Gulf of Thailand, combined with a low-pressure system near northern Vietnam and the Gulf of Tonkin, is creating volatile weather conditions.


These atmospheric disturbances are expected to bring considerable thunderstorms and heavy rains, particularly in Thailand's eastern and western southern regions.


Local authorities have cautioned residents in Rayong, Chanthaburi, and Trat to prepare for severe weather, highlighting the potential risk of floods due to the forecasted heavy rainfall.


Mariners in the upper Andaman Sea are also urged to exercise extreme caution, as waves could surge between 1 to 2 metres, exceeding 2 metres in storm-affected areas.


Bangkok will not be spared either, with thunderstorms predicted to cover about 40% of the city's area. Citizens are recommended to carry umbrellas amidst the expected rainy spells.


The northern provinces, including Mae Hong Son, Chiang Mai, and Chiang Rai, will experience thunderstorms affecting roughly 30% of the region, combined with a temperature range of 24 to 36 degrees Celsius.


Similar conditions set to unfold in northeastern areas like Nong Khai and Udon Thani, with temperatures hovering between 24 and 38 degrees Celsius.


The central provinces, namely Nakhon Sawan and Ayutthaya, are forecasted to witness thunderstorms hitting 30% of the locality. Meanwhile, the western southern region, covering Ranong, Phang Nga, and Phuket, shows a higher downpour probability at 60%, with heavy rain in select areas.


Residents throughout the affected regions are advised to stay informed about the latest weather updates and heed any local advisories to ensure safety during these unsettled weather conditions.

For a change: European weather centers (ECMWF) predict significant rain.


Chanthaburi 30 to 60 mm for six days in a row.

Rayong less.

Trat looks serious too, 60 to 80 mm for four days in a row.


(I filter for ECMWF only, GFS USA hopefully wrong again with 175 mm !)

Don't we just love floods in Bangkok?

snakes, cat fishes, garbage floating on the streets. Nothing improved since 90s. 

You might be disappointed. Forecasts show only moderate rains.

As the article says: have an umbrella with you.
