Doksuri rain storms set to lash upper regions of Thailand

Thailand’s Meteorological Department issued a warning yesterday saying heavy rain was set to batter the northern half of Thailand. The forecasted noted tropical storm Doksuri was working its way across the upper area of the South China Sea and was expected to hit northeastern Thailand on Friday.

They estimated that Doksuri was travelling at an average speed of 15kms an hour. This means the northeast and northern areas of the country are likely to be wet for much of Friday and Saturday.

The weather alert says the rain is likely to be really heavy at times and might bring winds of up to 75 knots. The tail-end of the southwest monsoon is also expected to reach as far as the northeast and this may exacerbate the rainfall there.

12GO ASIA’s resident travel specialists say that while the rainstorms are inconvenient the sun is usually shining a couple of days later. They also say travellers catching buses, trains or aeroplanes during inclement weather should allow a little extra time to get to their departure stations.
