Flooding conditions in deep SouthDecember 20th, 2007 - 10:10 am ICT by admin
The Meteorological Department reported at 4 AM today (December 20th) that the northeast monsoon over the Gulf and southern Thailand is weakening, resulting in lower amount of rainfall in the lower South. However, continuous precipitation can cause inundation in the three southern border provinces of Pattani, Yala and Narathiwat, and people in the far South should beware of flooding conditions during this period. Strong wind and wave conditions are likely in the lower Gulf of Thailand. All ships should proceed with caution. A high pressure system covering upper Thailand and the South China Sea is weakening. Morning fog is likely in northern Thailand, and some areas in this region will experience dense fog.
Bangkok metropolis and vicinity can expect morning fog with partly cloudy skies during daytime. The temperature would range from 25 to 36 degrees Celsius. The speed of northeasterly winds would be around 15 to 30 kilometers per hour.
