Weak monsoon will make less rain over Bay of Bengal: DMH

Weak monsoon will make less rain over Bay of Bengal for about two days, said Dr Kyaw Moe Oo, Director General of Department of Meteorology and Hydrology (DMH).

“Monsoon wind is weak currently and upper areas of Myanmar only have rain. More rain will be poured down as monsoon may strong after two or three days,” he said.

According to observation made by the DMH for August 15, rain or thundershowers will be scattered in lower Sagaing, Magway and Ayeyawady regions, fairly widespread in upper Sagaing and Bago regions, Rakhine and Kayah states and widespread in the remaining regions and states with isolated heavy falls in Mandalay Region and Mon State. The recorded rainfalls are 5.16 inches in Putao, 3.86 inches in Hlingtat, 3.62 inches in Machanbaw, 3.04 inches each in Moenyin and Thaton, 2.99 inches in Khamti, 2.35 inches in Banmaw, 2.20 inches in Hlinebwe and 2.17 inches in Hpa-an.

According to observation made by the DMH for August 16, monsoon is weak to moderate over the Andaman Sea and Bay of Bengal. Rain or thundershowers will be scattered in Magway Region, fairly widespread in lower Sagaing and Ayeyawady regions, Rakhine and Kayah states and widespread in the remaining regions and states with isolated heavy falls in upper Sagaing Region, Kachin, northern Shan and Mon states. Degree of certainty is 100%.

Sea will be moderate in Myanmar waters. Wave height will be about 6 –8 feet off and along Myanmar coasts, it said.

Monsoon will be strong over the Andaman Sea and South Bay of Bengal for next two days. One or two rain or thundershowers will be poured down in Nay Pyi Taw and Yangon today. Degree of certainty is 100%.
