Temperatures, rainfall, when to go, what to grab

The relatively cold seasons, however, can be felt in the northern and interior of the country, while it is still warm on the coast and in the southwest in winters. The rain has a different patterns in the Mediterranean peninsula, where you will find famous seaside and resort areas, than on the continents that will be later.

Below the climate zone of Thailand, which is mainly precipitation-orientated. The climate in the interior northerly plateaus and in the northwestern hills of the countryside is almost year-round warm, except in winters when it is sunshine but somewhat chilly at nights, especially in December and January when the temperature at nights falls to around 15°C (59°F) in the center and 12/13°C (54/55°F) in the north.

With the arrival of chinese colder breezes in December and January in the north of Chiang Mai, the temperatures at nights can fall to around 5°C (41°F), in some cases even below. Continental temperatures also show in the opposite way from February, when day temperatures often reach 33/34 C (91/93 F), then between March and May they rise to 35/37 C (95/99 F), with peak values above 40 C (104 F).

Maximum (°F)849095979391908888908888888682 The rain of the monsoons lasts until mid-May to mid-October. The yearly rainfall in the interior ranges from 1,000 to 1,500 millimeters (40 to 60 inches), with a similar pattern: uncommon and infrequent rainfall from mid-November to April and strong rainfall during the rainy season, with a climax at the end (August and September).

In Chiang Mai the sun is very good in the arid seasons, from December to April, when the weather is clear, while in the rainy seasons, from June to September, it is not high, as there are several seasons in which the heavens are overcast. The best times in this area are December and January, as it is often the case that the sun is already intensive in February, especially in the southern part of the flat.

The climate in the capitol Bangkok is year-round. From the middle of November to January the wheather is good, mostly in clear sky. In the middle of May the month comes and the temperatures begin to fall; the climate is often overcast, air moisture continues to rise, but at least the rainfall, in the shape of rain and storms, sometimes intensive, brings a little reassure.

However, very fiery times can still take place in these summers, in the interval between the spells of poor-weathering. Rainfall throughout the year is 1,450 mm (57 in); the rainy seasons are September and October, at the end of the rainy seasons, with 345 mm and 240 mm (13. 5 and 9. 5 in) in.

In Bangkok, too, from December to April, when the weather is clear, the sun is very good in the arid months, while in the months of June to September it is not high, as there are several cloud -covered seasons. The best hour in Bangkok is from December to mid-February, as it is the least warm and outside the wet seasons.

To the southeast of Bangkok, Pattaya has a climate similar to that of the capitol, but it lies on a coastal section (down to Sattahip) that is relatively protected from summers: from June to August rainfall averages around 100 mm per calendar year. Of course we are still in a sultry and humid time of year when the amount of sun is not so high, and sometimes tropic winds and typhoons can blow by (see below), in a nutshell the climate in these seasons is not so welcoming, but if you are fortunate, it can be tolerable.

Pattaya's rains iest month is May, September and October, the beginning and end of the wet seasons. This is the best period from December to February, with March and April still arid and sunshiny, but a little bit warm (although not as warm as inside).

The coastline southwest of Bangkok, down to Ao Noi, is also quite protected, in fact the fallout in summers is not large, and the overall amount of rain per year is about 1,000/1,200 mm (40/47 in). To the southeast of Pattaya, beginning with Rayong, the summers are more frequent and are in the most eastern part (see Chanthaburi, Trat, Koh Chang), where it is definitely not advisable to have it.

The best period here is also from December to February; it is warm in March and April, but the sun is shining, despite the first brief pre-monsoon rain. The climate is year-round. Between March and May the heat is less severe than in the mainland, and on general these seasons are slightly hotter than the remainder of the year: the maximum temperatures are 33/34 C (91/93 F) instead of 31/32 C (88/90 F), although it can sometimes get very warm here too.

In the peninsula there are also different rain seasons according to the location of the hills.

The rainfall sometimes continues until the beginning or mid-January, so that in this area, which comprises Ko Samui, Pattani and Songkhla, the best period is from the mid or end of January to April (with a predilection for February, because here too March and April are a little hot).

Despite the different precipitation patterns, the sun also has a relatively low level on the eastern coastline in the June-October season, although it stays quite low from November to January. Throughout the western coastline, on the Andamanensee ( "Similan Islands", Phuket, Krabi, Phi Phi Phi Islands, Koh Lanta, Koh Lipe), the summers are very wet, as the monsoons hit the coastline directly from the ocean, while there is little precipitation from December to March.

Also, the ocean can be harsh during the hot season, and it can be hard to reach the island by canoe. Solar radiation on the western coastline is very low from May to October. So the best season here is from the end of December to March; pre-monsoon rain is more common in April than elsewhere.

Thailand's ocean is hot all year round, as you can see from the Ko Samui temperatures. To the west of Thailand, along the Burmese frontier and to the east along the Laos frontier, there are mountains with summits of over 2,000m.

Over 1,000 meters (3,300 feet) the climate is chilly in winters, with gentle weather and chilly evenings and pleasantly hot during the year. Mountain regions usually have more heavy rainfall, and even in the pre-monsoon season there may be a few rainfalls in the afternoons, so this area is usually clouded by rain forests.

following a flight path from eastern to western direction: if they go northerly, they can still cause strong rainfall on the continent after releasing most of their power to Vietnam, Laos and Cambodia; if they pursue a more southerly flight path, however, they can have a more direct impact on the peninsula part of Thailand.

In general, they concern Thailand from June to December, although they are more common from September to November. From the Indian Ocean, on the other side, they travel on a flight path from eastern to western or southern to northern direction and influence the Andaman Sea in the initial phase of its development or may strike the mainland part of Thailand after hitting Burma (or Myanmar) in a more immediate manner.

Fewer than the Typhoon, they are easier to develop between April and December, with two summits at the beginning and end of the season (April-June and October-December); however, due to the hot ocean, they can theoretically develop throughout the year, especially in the south. Thailand is generally not as badly affected as other Southeast Asian nations such as the Philippines or Vietnam.

Over the last few years, it has only been directly affected from mid-October to around 20 December, but one of the typhoons that struck this area particularly badly was Gay, who struck the Gulf of Thailand in early November 1989; another was Forrest in mid-November 1992.

The December-February season can be more wet in Thailand, even in areas that are normally arid. In January 2012 (one year of a feeble La Niña), for example, 325 mm of precipitation occurred in Ko Samui (which, however, is on the eastern side, which is still quite wet at this time) and even 475 mm in Krabi.

March 2011, a year of temperate La Niña, was much more severe, causing flooding in the southern part of the country: In the last two wards of the months in particular, it was raining almost every day, and some places of interest were inactive. However, even in January it had been raining enough: 135 mm (5. 3 in) in Krabi and 290 mm (11. 4 in) in Ko Samui.

Thailand can be visited from December to the middle of February on the continent and in Bangkok, from the end of December to March on the southwestern coast (see Similan Islands, Phuket, Krabi, Phi Phi Islands, Koh Lanta, Koh Lipe), and from the end of January to April on the southerly coast of the Gulf of Thailand (see Ko Samui, Pattani and Songkhla), considering that March and April are the hottest seasons.

During the summers, July and August, the east part of the Thailand peninsula, the coastline of the Gulf of Thailand, usually has an agreeable climate, as it is protected from the strongest monsoons, which are drained on the western side, and generally also from hurricanes.

On the northern side (Chiang Mai, Chiang Rai): lightweight attire for the days, a coat and a pullover for the nights; in Bangkok lightweight attire, a lightweight sweat shirt for the nights, a shawl for the breezes, possibly a lightweight coat or a pullover for colder afternoons. On the peninsula Thailand, lightweight attire, a lightweight sweat-shirt for the night, a shawl for the wind, a sweat-shirt for air-conditioned places.

For the Gulf of Thailand you can use a slight raincover or parasol. To wear in the hills, spring/autumn wear, a hot coat and a pullover for the evening: tropical-friendly, loose garments, raincoats or umbrellas, sturdy boots, a loose sweat shirt and a shawl for air-conditioned seats. Out in the hills, wearing loose garments for the days, raincoats, hiking boots, sweaters for the evenings and for the summits.
