Phuket Weather

Well, it's Nearly High Season Weather

Still some rain to come. The SouthWest monsoon has not given up completely yet. Winds are light, but we have had a bit of isolated heavy rain over the last few days.

Thursday last week (11th) was a sunny day with clear skies in the evening - the vegetarian festival started (Read more here: Phuket Vegetarian Festival Begins) and we took a walk to get some food in Kathu Village near our house.

Friday, by contrast, started grey and wet and continued that way all morning, only getting bright in the afternoon. Saturday was very similar - a wet start, but we were able to enjoy the afternoon at the pool with the kids. While we were enjoying the pool, I see from the news that flash floods may have killed several tourists in Khao Sok - see Bangkok Post.

The Windguru site shows the changing seasons very well. You can tell by the wind direction that things are a little mixed up right now. The wind forecast for today looks like this (from 07:00 - 14:00)

This morning was very bright, the beach at Karon is looking calm, might be OK for a beach dive later this week. I stopped on the way to Karon at Wat Ladthiwanaram, near Chalong - One of many smaller local temples in Phuket and certainly worth 15 minutes of your time of you happen to be passing...
