The Ministry of Water Resources and Meteorology (MOWRAM) has appealed to people to be vigilant of possible phenomena such as thunder, lightning, gusts, strong wind and high waves this week, particularly at coastal areas.
In its new weather forecast issued this morning, MOWRAM explained the phenomena by the influence of ITCZ low pressure, southwest monsoon and tropical storm In-Fa.
Between July 28 and Aug. 3, the same source pointed out, the temperature would vary from 24 to 32 degrees Celsius for the provinces in the central lowland areas, from 23 to 31 degrees Celsius for the provinces next to the Dangrek mountain range and highland areas in the northeast, and between 23 and 30 degrees Celsius in the coastal areas, accompanied by light to heavy rain across the country.
According to the ministry’s announcement released yesterday, the Mekong water will keep rising in the next three to four days, which would inundate riparian areas in the provinces of Stung Treng, Kratie, Kampong Cham and Thbong Khmum.
Anyway, the surge will not reach the alert level yet, MOWRAM underlined, calling on farmers in the affected areas to hurry in collecting their agricultural produce and to increase their vigilance to avoid any possible accidents.
