BANGKOK, 13 October 2011 (NNT) – Thailand’s Meteorological Department has reported that the northeastern and central regions could experience heavy rains over the next seven days, whereas the storm system in the South China Sea has shown signs of weakening.
According to the Weather Forecast Bureau, Thai Meteorological Department, a monsoon trough is sweeping through the northeastern and central parts of Thailand, possibly causing continuous rainfall in the areas during the next seven days. However, the occurrence is considered normal during the rainy season.
At the same time, the temperature is expected to drop by 2-4 degrees Celsius as a consequence of a high-pressure system moving down from China to Thailand’s northern and northeastern regions.
Meanwhile, a tropical storm currently dominating the northwestern part of the South China Sea has a tendency to weaken into a depression in the near future. The system will likely bring heavy rains to Thailand during 17-18 October, but only three northeastern provinces, namely Mukdahan, Amnat Charoen and Ubon Ratchathani, will be affected.
