General weather patterns

During the week from 6th to 12th August 2019, the weather outlook bulletins and maps issued by the Thailand Meteorology Department (TMD) were used to verify the weather condition in the LMB. The rainfall will be mostly 60-80% of the area along with heavy rain amount at many areas and very heavy rain amount at some areas, especially in August and September. The low pressure was observed at the middle part of LMB (Chaing Khan and Vientiane/ Nong Khai), which attracted rainfall in these locations last week. Figures 1 & 2 presented the weather map for 8th and 12th August 2019.
