Checking the Phuket Weather Forecast and when to go?
In truth, there is no bad time to visit Phuket – do your research and you’ll not likely be disappointed.
It is also nice for you to note that in other parts of the world it may snow or freeze, Phuket is tropical, it is always warm. The temperature generally stays between some nights to as low as 22 and 34 Celsius during the day, throughout Phuket Island.
When it comes to Phuket’s temperature and weather condition, the region owes its warm tropical temperature to its close proximity to the equator. The presence of warm waters straight from the Andaman Sea and the Indian Ocean. This makes the weather remain warm all year round with it most of the time hovering at an average of 28°C with the ocean breeze keeping everything cool.
Phuket weather can be described in a number of ways, hot, cool and low, high and low, high and green and a number of other suggestions for the “seasons”.
If you’re planning to visit soon below are the coming months. You can also read the weather predictions for the next 30 days and stay up to date.
Let’s focus on Two Seasons.
November to April and May to October.
The typical tourist High Season is December through to April. The hottest months are February, March, April, usually no rain, the wind is consistent from the North East, sometimes a late thunderstorm. There is little or no rain fall at this time. The odd thunderstorm usually helps to cool down the high temperature. There is, however, high humidity which combines with the high temperature can be uncomfortable. The humidity will keep on building up till April where you will experience the first serious thunderstorms in the region.
The month of May can be indifferent as the wind and weather patterns change 180 degrees and the wind now comes from the west. Bringing with it a wet period and many high seas on the West Coast.
Swimmers need to take full notice of the lifeguards if they are going to the sea, far too many people don’t.
PLEASE be aware of the rougher seas during the months May to October.
Some beaches suffer from rip tide effects and will have a strong undertow (though they are usually well marked).
It is not always safe to swim as the sea reacts to the weather.
Swimming for children in particular is probably not safe unless you seek protected waters on the bay side of the island.
ASK before going in if the beach is not marked.
The summer months of May to October can be very pleasant, but do expect to see some rain in this period with September and October being the wettest.
Phuket does get rain and lots of wonderful tropical sunshine.
If you haven’t visited the tropics and you’re in Phuket when a tropical storm runs through boy oh boy will you experience some big rain drops? A torrential downpour like you have never seen, and then just like magic two hours later beautiful sunshine, every thing dries up and life goes on.
Here’s how Phuket compares to other areas of Thailand.

Looking at the Phuket Weather when should you visit.
You’ll hear many opinions about the best time of year to visit Phuket but in fact, the truth is that it depends on you and what you like.
November to April
If you enjoy the nightlife and crowds, November to April is a good time to come. If you are a people watcher, it is also a fun time, sit on the beach. sip a beer and watch people walk by. Winter is also the time of year when the sea is much calmer and clearer during this season, which makes swimming in the ocean very safe and so perhaps better for scuba diving, snorkeling and swimming in the sea.
During the months of November to April, as Phuket is just in the Northern Hemisphere it is winter and many tourists from much colder Europe, Scandinavia and Russia visit.
May to October
May to October many Australians and Kiwis here coming away from their winters to the Phuket summer. There is a round the year round Chinese tourist business and many other nationalities now coming to Phuket thanks to lower cost flights and an abundance of accommodation.
So the question should not be for the best time to visit Phuket but it should rather be “the best time you would want to visit Phuket”. So you see, the question is quite personal.is a list of quality hotels.
September in Phuket is typically the wettest month of the year.
Love to surf? Visit Phuket in September……… the Phuket weather.
November marks the beginning of the high season. The weather echoes that sentiment and the skies begin to clear.
During November in Phuket this month is considered the official start of the high season.
