#1 Heavy rains and flooding expected in Thailand due to Typhoon Mangkhut

Postby Gaybutton » Sun Sep 16, 2018 5:28 am

After causing devastation in the Philippines and now on a direct path to Hong Kong, Typhoon Mangkhut is also affecting Thailand. Despite the distance from Thailand, we have been getting rains generated as a result of the typhoon over the past several days - sometimes heavy, sometimes drizzling.

Through Wednesday, September 19, perhaps longer if the storm stalls, various amounts of rain and flooding is expected throughout all of Thailand. No flight cancellations are expected in Thailand unless the flights are bound for the storm danger areas, but the weather itself is not expected to cause cancellations. Be prepared for delays, though (of course you often get delays anyway even when the weather is perfect).

Bring your umbrella.

With the warnings about heavy rains and floods, I don't know about other areas of Thailand yet, but as of 3:50pm today, the time of this post, so far in Pattaya there hasn't been a drop.

It started this afternoon around 3:45 in Bangkok. Now it is still raining and there is thunder but the amount of rainfall is just like a gentle shower - far less than the bucketloads we had in the late afternoons in the middle of this last week.

In Pattaya, ever since this warning was issued there has been no rain at all, not even a drizzle. Today is a nice sunny day in Pattaya.

What about elsewhere in Thailand? Are any of you in other Thailand locales getting any of this rain?

Sunny day in Surin with high cloud.
It was dry yesterday following several days when we had late afternoon rain

No rain yesterday in Bangkok as far as I was aware and a beautiful sunny morning today. Looking at the chart showing the anticipated progress of the now downgraded typhoon, I'd suspect it is unlikely to hsve more than a minor affect in Thailand. Seems now to be moving north north west in China's Yunnan Province.
