Hot and Dry in Phuket
Finally, an update! Actually, the last 4 weeks of Phuket weather can be summed up in 3 words ...
HOT AND DRY
I decided in 2013 that the weather blog did not need regular updates since social media seems to be better for updating the weather in Phuket ... you can follow me on Twitter where the weather gets a daily mention, and there's also the Jamie's Phuket Facebook Page which also gets updated just about every day with photos or news or blog updates. And I joined Instagram last month - please do follow at instagram.com/phuketblog - photos almost daily which may also hint at the weather.
On this weather blog there's a great Live Phuket Webcam at Karon Beach or there are plenty of other weather links on the left side of this page for forecasts, satellite images, weather radar and more. All I can do on this blog is say what the weather has been like recently. Don't ask me for forecasts .. I am not a meteorologist and even if I were, it's not possible to say exactly what the weather will be like on May 7th or July 28th. I can be pretty dam sure though, that the weather in Phuket for the next couple of weeks will be, yes ...
HOT AND DRY

Oh, here's something worth a look, and I'll make a blog post out of it soon - in the last 2 weeks I have decided to make an effort to get a bit fitter. It's been over 20 years since I happily rode a bike around the Pyrenees and raced every weekend over the 400 meter hurdles! I have been doing 1 hour fast walks around the Bang Wad reservoir not far from our house in Phuket. It's about 6.5km around the reservoir and in the early morning it's a beautiful place... some photos here : Bang Wad Reservoir

And if you need a hotel booking, look first at Agoda. It's what I use.
Weather looks set to continue hot and dry. Last month (March) I measured a total of 5mm of rain. Driest March ever? And it's going to get hotter in April as we head towards the Songkran festival on April 13th. I am hoping for some rain soon, this is a hot year. More updates soon!
