The Ministry of Water Resources and Meteorology said yesterday that a low pressure system will hit the kingdom this week, bringing rainfall across the country until Tuesday.


The ministry said the system is currently in the southeastern part of the Philippines and will then move into the South China Sea and the Mekong Delta region, brining rainfall to most of the kingdom, especially in the lowland and coastal areas.

The ministry added that temperatures may drop to 23 degrees Celsius in some parts of the country, while the maximum temperature will hit 30.

Um Rina, director of the general department of water resources and meteorology, could not be reached for comment.

Men Rin, a farmer in Takeo province, said he is concerned potato crops could be damaged if the rainfall in heavy and consistent.

“If the weather is like that, it will make it difficult for those who are harvesting potatoes,” he said.

In late December, Cambodia was also affected by Typhoon Tembin, which caused average-to-heavy rainfall across the country.
