Last week’s prediction of heavy rain looks like a bust this time a week ago, but by midweek, Pattaya had seen its heaviest floods in years and roads in Chiang Mai washed out. So what’s this week hold?
The Thailand Meteorological Department again is forecasting heavy rain in the East and South with strong storms expected July 13-17.
Metropolitan Bangkok also will see isolated thunderstorms with temperatures ranging between 27 and 38 degrees Celsius and winds up to 25 kilometers per hour.
Through July 17, the southwest monsoon prevailing across the Andaman Sea will strengthen while the easterly and southeasterly winds blow over the Northeast.
