Thailand is expected to enter the ‘cold’ season at the end of October and the periods of chilly weather will last longer, 5 to 7 days at a time instead of just 3 or 5 days as in previous years, according to the Thai Meteorological Department.
The first week of winter in Phuket has been beautiful with temperatures still in the 30’s. A low of 25C can be expected some evenings however followed sometimes by a couple of showers and a thunderstorm.
Throughout the day winds are travelling normally from the East.
Through December and January, temperatures in Bangkok are forecast to drop to 21oC-23oC while, in mountainous areas, they could fall to as low as 5oC-6oC.
The sun will be setting in Phuket just after 6 PM and sunrise around 6:15 AM. The Sunrise and Sunset times vary little throughout the year due to the location near the equator.
