Well, here's one guess:
Almost as good as a crystal ball!
And for more immediate forecasts and observations:

Dry, wet, hot, cool, with intermitent weather
Thank you X6
One good thing from this data appears to be that, thankfully, last year's flooding remain firmly in the past.
So no snow then!!!!!!
I reckon that the weather could easily be hot and cold and wet and dry. Snow would most likely be out as would sleet. One can never tell, but I admit to being somewhat relieved that flooding doesn't seem to be on the horizon this year.
Don't speak too soon, pleeeeeeeeeeeease!!
Not one more word will be spoken.
The Oceanic Niño Index (often used to help forecast floods vs drought in SE Asia and elsewhere) is in its typical mid-year hiatus. So it's not yet feasible to reliably forecast what will happen in the 2nd half of the year.
In any case, last year's situation in Thailand was unusual by almost anyone's standards.
" So it's not yet feasible to reliably forecast what will happen in the 2nd half of the year. "
So it's all the fault of the Oceanic Nino Index?
Is any forecast beyond the next 24 hours reliable these days?
