Tropical Storm Kompasu will arrive in Thailand on Thursday, bringing with it more rain than fizzled storm Lionrock did, said Nattapon Nattasomboon, director-general of the Meteorological Department.
He said that, after passing the Philippines, Kompasu would reach China’s Hainan Island on Oct. 13, move to Vietnam and head towards Thailand.
It will weaken and become a tropical depression when it arrives in the Northeast in the evening of Oct. 14. Then it will cause more rains from the morning of that day, he said.
Kompasu would bring about rains from Oct. 14-16. At the same time, a monsoon trough over Thailand would increase rains and heavy downpours in some parts of the North, the Northeast, the Central Plains including greater Bangkok, the East and the South, Nattapon said.
