Rainy season prelude now underway

prelude: something that comes before ...
Rains have been daily for the past three days and are forecast daily.
Continuing to arrive from the North-Northwest.  
Early morning dew is on the furniture. A kitchen towel covering keyboards overnight is recommended if you detect moisture on your furniture.
The rainy season: there are periods of sunshine, periods of clouds, and periods of rain, sometimes light, at times tropical.   
It's best to avoid driving during intense rains which limit visibility.  Roads tend to be slippery at the start of a rain, till the dust has been washed off the roads.  
The heavy rainy season is probably another month or so in the future. When the weather patterns shift.
About the time when the monks go into 'Rain Retreat' Wan Khao Phansa. The start of Buddhist lent.
