As I write the Island starts to re open and International Flights start but limited to qualified visitors at this time. Covid 19 has certainly changed how we travel and what we are doing. The great news is that the Weather in July hasn’t changed.
Thailand has a tropical monsoonal climate and is generally warm all year long although it roughly varies between warm, cool and rainy, with the average yearly temperature being 29 degrees Celsius or 83 degrees Fahrenheit and an average of 8 hours of sunshine each day.
Anyone who has visited Phuket would certainly recommend it as a place worth a visit.
Are you looking to spend your next holiday in Thailand’s paradise island? We certainly hope so.
Here is what to expect from Phuket weather in July 2020.
Phuket weather in July
Rain, Temperatures and Sea conditions.
July is the month when the weather normally has settled into summer time. Just check out the LIVE weather radar. Phuket Island is generally quieter, International Schools are on holiday Thai Schools have just gone back after the Covid 19 lockdown. West Coast beaches are enjoying South Westerly currents and hence great surfing.
Sometimes swimming is restricted due to the large waves and dangerous undercurrents but good news for the surfers and bodyboarders as July is when the surf season.
The sea temperature in July remains at bath like temperatures around 30 degrees Celsius or 86 degrees Fahrenheit.
July’s average temperature does drop down slightly from the hottest months of March and April and vary in the mid-thirties. This drop can be offset by the rise in humidity levels, which is high day and night. The Average rainfall in July is around 290 mm it is not one of the wettest months, that title goes to September (440mm) or April (400mm).
The chances of having a wet day during this month in Phuket are essentially 52%. You might want to bring a raincoat or an umbrella for your trip: it can rain anytime.
Nai Harn beach in December can look just like this during the July and August months.
The July and August outlook
Please don’t be mistaken Phuket weather in July sounds like it just rains all day long, it doesn’t.
There are good periods of sun and the showers often only last for an hour and do really help with the humidity if only for a couple of hours. The better weather during June, July and August will be mean fewer tourists, less traffic and generally easier to get around, just not so packed. In 2020 this is more so due to the travel restrictions from Covid 19.
Don’t get too worried about the Phuket weather in July. Phuket and its Islands are heaps of fun and there are plenty of activities now starting to open.
So much to do and some great offers on Accommodation, Car Hire, Tours and International flights to get here. And while I am here telling you about Phuket weather in July read about December weather, the next 30 days prediction and again with early accommodation offers Early December can be an excellent time to visit that is more so in 2020.
We hope you have enjoyed the look forward to July Weather in Phuket and you can get regular updates on Phuket FM radio and also the 30 day weather forecast looking forward to the next 30 days.

Phuket Weather, Wind Direction and Forecast
Phuket has Two Seasons.
There are generally two seasons, a hot season (high season), which is fairly dry and a green (rainy season) or (monsoon season), which is a little cooler and of course brings the rain. The hot or high season begins in late November early December and usually lasts until the end of March.
The Green season begins in April/May with June July and August are the best months for good Phuket Weather in the summer. September/October can bring some heavier rain.
November, April, and May are normally transitional months and during these, the weather is rather hard to predict, although the months just before the green season, March, April and May are statistically the hottest and most humid time of the year for Phuket with the average temperature being 32/31 degrees Celsius or around 87/89 degrees Fahrenheit.
