The Meteorological Department of Thailand (TMD) forecasts increased rainfall over the next 10 days, from today until July 11. Bangkok and its surrounding areas are expected to experience afternoon and evening showers.

TMD has updated its daily rainfall forecast, covering 24 hours from 7am. The forecast is based on data from the European Centre for Medium-Range Weather Forecasts (ECMWF) and indicates that red shades signify heavy rain, while blue shades denote light rain.

Today, the southern region will see a slight decrease in rainfall, although showers are still likely in monsoon-affected areas and the eastern part of the northern region, as well as the upper northeastern region near the low-pressure area over northern Vietnam. Bangkok and its vicinity will remain mostly cloudy, with rain expected in the afternoon and evening.

TMD’s 10-day forecast highlights an increase in rainfall from today, July 2 to 11, particularly in Bangkok and its surrounding areas during the afternoon and evening. Increased rainfall distribution is anticipated from tomorrow, July 3 to 11, though most of the precipitation will range from light to moderate. This pattern will affect the eastern part of the northern region, the upper and eastern parts of the northeastern region, the central region (including Bangkok and its vicinity), and the eastern region.

In the southern region, isolated light showers are expected due to weak to moderate monsoon conditions. Wind waves will be strong in areas experiencing thunderstorms, necessitating caution. The weather pattern during this period may change based on new incoming data.

TMD advises the public to stay updated with the latest weather information and to be prepared for potential heavy rainfall in the coming days, reported KhaoSod.

In related news, flooding has plagued a village in Korat for over five days, leaving residents without assistance. Some have been forced to rent temporary accommodation due to the severe conditions. As of June 26, reporters confirmed that the water levels in Sawan Prik Thai community, Mueang district, Nakhon Ratchasima, have begun to recede.
