Weather in Sept

We are considering staying in Khao Lak in early Sept. What weather can we expect. Many days of rain or just occasional down pours?

Thanks for your help

Hi Kelly,

September is in the rainy or southwest monsoon season (mid-May to mid-October). The southwest monsoon prevails over Thailand and abundant rain occurs over the country. The wettest period of the year is August to September. The exception is found in the Southern Thailand East Coast where abundant rain remains until the end of the year that is the beginning period of the northeast monsoon and November is the wettest month.

I've not been to Khao Lak in September, but in October you can get rain. This is either a short downpour, or can be more persistent but lighter. The most rain we have had in October is about 5 hours.

The advantage of going at this time is, of course, the good hotel deals and the very laid back atmosphere.

September in theory and statistics is one of the rainiest months but it really depends on the moment.Have a look at www.khaolaklovers.com/khao_lak_weather.htm You can also do a search on september weather in the search box.
