AssistAlert: 2023 Monsoon Season Forecast for Southeast Asia


2023 Monsoon Season Forecast for Southeast Asia


Though forecast models project below-average to average rainfall for South and Southeast Asia this monsoon season, elevated potential for flooding, landslides and other related natural disasters are anticipated. This year’s period is anticipated to last through September and is expected to affect India, Pakistan, Sri Lanka, Myanmar, Bhutan, Bangladesh, Nepal, Cambodia, Laos, Thailand, the Philippines, and Vietnam. Major river systems and tributaries regularly overflow their banks during periods of intense rainfall and flash floods can pose a threat to areas downstream. Urban flooding is possible in areas with poorly maintained or inadequate drainage systems, while storm surges may trigger flooding in coastal areas.


  • Monitor local media for weather updates and advisories
  • Confirm all transport reservations in advance
  • Anticipate travel delays
  • Do not drive on flooded roads
  • Have an emergency bag/kit prepared in the event of evacuation
  • Charge battery powered devices in anticipation of outages
