Phuket Weather - Current Conditions - What's it doing now?


Current weather - Just starting low season although the southwest winds are not blowing yet, there are a few rainy days. The "low season" runs until October. The high season was very nice, although we also had some heavy rain in early January 2017 - very unusual! The weather in high season 2016 was also very good - blue skies, warm days, although a little breezy, making a few waves on the ocean. Just as you'd expect in the high season! In May (no exact date) the weather starts to change as the west winds blow across the Indian Ocean. The high season weather starts sometime in October.

We tried before to keep this weather page updated year round. Phuket weather observations based on Sunrise Divers office at Karon Beach, Phuket and from Jamie's wanderings around Phuket. For reports from previous months, see our old Phuket Weather database which covers the years 2004 - 2007.

It's hard to keep up with weather reports - we are busy at Sunrise Divers looking after our customers needs! However, Jamie's Phuket Weather Blog has regular Phuket weather updates every week or 2 along with current photos and lots of useful links.


Weather in Phuket - Patterns and Seasons


The weather in Phuket follows certain patterns which are pretty easy to understand. As divers, we are naturally concerned about what the weather will be doing when we are diving. We like sun and calm seas, but diving continues all year unless it's really bad - this is very rare.

The 3 Seasons - Cool and Dry, Hot and Dry, Wet

Every year is different. Some years are wetter, some low seasons are drier, and high season months can be rainy sometimes too. But the weather is normally pretty decent here in Phuket! The weather changes to "wet" sometime between end of April to early June. Normally the summer months are pretty good - certainly more sunny days than rain, but the weather in unpredictable and you can get some wet and windy days. Rain is usually sporadic short showers and can be very localised - rain in Patong beach but not Karon, just a few km away for example.

Thailand Diving Seasons - More Information

The "good" weather starts again sometime in October/November and lasts until April/May. The months November - February are a few degrees cooler due to fresh NE winds. March and April can be really hot, with very little wind.

Phuket climate on offshore islands (Similans, Racha etc.)

It is worth noting that during the rainy season, even if it's raining on the island of Phuket, you are likely to have more sun when you are out at sea. The mountains on Phuket top 500m, so trap clouds and promote thunderstorms. Often a day's diving is sunny, with a rain shower speeding over, you'll get a suntan, but you get wet back on land!
