You need to look through the forum at all the other weather questions. Do not take too much notice of weather forecasts. They nearly always show rain daily for khao lak. Sometimes it will rain every day but only for an hour or so. We went in Feb and the forecast was for thunder storms every day. We had one almighty storm and not a spot of rain for the rest of the fortnight. Hot and sunny every day.

At the end of the day your holiday is booked so there's nothing you can do about it and no point stressing. You will have an amazing time with gorgeous got weather

We arrived on Sunday and rain was forecast as well but it never arrived. Locals say maybe a storm/rain most afternoons bit only for an hour.

"Should we expect its going to rain everyday?"

Look at the average monthly rain patterns. They tell you how many days it rains and mm averages.

Short answer - forecast as per normal, daily rain, no.

For one, a forecast that far away isn't going to be accurate anyway. Read this for info on forecasts https://www.tripadvisor.com.au/ShowTopic-g29…

We have just returned from 16 days in Khao Lak. We had rain on 8 of those days (don't panic!) - one day it rained for about 2 hours the rest lasted for between 10-30 minutes. The rain would come down heavy but before we knew it the sun was out again. It was hot and sunny for the majority of the time with some welcome cloud.

Don't bother looking at the forecasts again if you are going to worry about it.

You will have rain, you will have sun and you will have clouds and clear skies but 100% you are on holidays and you will enjoy it :) Stop worrying.
