We have not seen the usual flooding of your pool!!
That’s because I’ve moved and the new house (deliberately) doesn’t have a pool!!

A check of current satellite images shows storms coming over from the west right on top of Cha-Am and Hua Hin. Yellow and reds so there must be some storm activity involved? Let us know if you get a much needed cooling shower?

It’s a bit cloudy which has dropped the temperature a bit, but doesn’t look like rain at the moment but 🤞

It's great to see evening thunder storms popping up all over the place up country, but not even a shadow in the East. :banghead:

Lomu has always said that Hua Hin never gets any rain from those storms trying to get over the mountains west of you.

Lomu is quite right. I often sit on my front porch in the evening watching what looks like really fierce electrical storms over Cha-Am. Rarely does anything actually get to Hua Hin.

As much as I’d like him to be wrong, I suspect he won’t be on this occasion, but at least we have a few degrees respite!!

The sun being at it's zenith does not mean it will automatically be hotter! The sun is no closer at it's zenith than any other day; there are several other factors that determine the days temperature, such as clouds, wind direction, local surface conditions, how many cane fields Somchai has set on fire, etc., etc.

The wife mentioned that they are not seeding clouds this year as they have done in the past every year, usually with an April start. It seems Thais contributing to discussions have no idea why not? The news is very active when clouds are seeded to create rain. Every year there have been articles and announcements.

Edit: I did a little research and there are articles from 2-3 months ago that they were going to do it and had aircraft assigned. No updates since that February article.

Hua Hin forecast starting next week. Perhaps some relief is in sight?
