This year to experience more rainfall than last year


BANGKOK – The Meteorological Department has revealed that Thailand this year will experience more rainfall than last year, especially after the second week of July.


Department Director-General Wanchai Sakudomchai revealed that during June 25-26, the low pressure system in the South China Sea will intensify and move ashore in Vietnam, causing rain in the southern, central, eastern and northeastern regions.

After the second week of July, scattered rainfall is expected to spread throughout the country and persist until October. The rainy forecast is welcome news to many farmers that have suffered from prolonged drought earlier in the year.
