Hi I'm coming to khao lak next week but all forecasts show thunderstorms every day!!!!

What's the weather really like at the moment, is it rain all the time?

Thanks

Please read the Stcky at the top of the page "Storm icons on weather sites do not necessarily mean rain! "

No doubt someone in Khao Lak now will come along and confirm that it is not raining all the time. It is the beginning of the Wet Season so there is greater likelihood of rain but not necessarily every day and usually in the afternoon.

Weather patterns are changing all the time everywhere. What it was like 2 years ago or even today are no guarantee of what it will be like next week. It will be hot though!

having just spent 12 days recently, the forecasts predicted thunderstorms everyday, apart from 2 fine days.

it rained on those 2 fine days and there were 4 others that had from a little rain to next to nothing.

you will most likely hear thunder rumbling away in the distance around 4 pm but you will know if the rain is coming.

here's a page that should keep you happy.. scroll down to long term forecast
