    My missus says the rains are late this year. The village reservoir is nowhere near full.

    We have had virtually constant rain for the last few days, if it carries on the rice crops are going to be falling over all over the place.

    And to think they were all overjoyed with the 15,000 baht per tonne.

    It's not unusual to have rain in October. And weren't the floods in 2011 in November?

    not round here, its the end of October there usually just about to start cutting the rice, showers maybe but not like this.

    Wasn't the floods in BKK because the flood water reached the chao praya end of october and then flooded to January

    The rains should have ended a couple of weeks ago from my experience, but hey, at least there's now really cool thunderstorms as the cooler weather is trying to make it's way south....

    Just up the road from you Jack. Always plant June/July. Harvest mid Nov thru mid Dec.
    Rain here is what I would call
    tam-má-daa (normal).
    We do one crop a year so even though the Chi River is low not going to effect our crop a bit.
    Those who pump water from the river to do two crops will be crying drought. Again.
    Simple fact is Isaan by nature is a one crop per year deal.

    The rainy seasons have become longer over a cycle of years now.
    The traditional season usually will extend well into October.

    The continuous rainy season has been know to hang around up to Loy Kratong - not every year - depending on where you are.

    There is not an official seasonal calendar.

    I hate the rain, we get more than most, rains nearly everyday, 10 km west it can be dry and sunny, but pouring down here. Mountains and jungle cool the air, good rubber country, but bad biking, hiking etc.

    This year about normal, only good thing is the power stays on more often, longest outage only 3 days this year.

    some of my wife's crop is ready to cut, though that crop is in deep water to deep for the machines.and hand cutting now is to expensive unless the laotians are around and there not.

    The rest of her crop is ready next week but the rains seems to be making it fall, she out there three times a day checking it.

    funny thing is we buy hom mali rice now to eat as the rice around here is crap.

    Norton is it worth them doing two crops now? thought the populist govt scheme only allows one crop now?

    So it should be. Pumping from the rivers should be stopped.

    No they started in July, but the major flooding occurred around mid October.

    Trang province..dunno my memory ain't that great..but often seems that rainy season seems to hang on...remember it pissing down right up to Christmas a couple of years back.
    NW monsoon arrived a few weeks back which should have heralded the dry season.
    Currently down pours and drizzly rain practically every frickin day with maybe one or two days with clear skies am then downpours pm.....
    As Jim says weather is very regional/zonal..ie it can be pissing down on the farm while 7k away, in the village, dry and sunny...
    This am heavy mist across the valley..looking east no sign of a sun...steaming jungle..55
