Monday, April 22, 2024 – Phuket weather, sunset times, air quality and tides (7am)

Thailand’s Meteorological Department is threatening heatwave conditions for much of this week, including Phuket. Meanwhile there could be a random dump of rain during the day, although sunny and hot conditions will prevail. Moderate north-westerly winds have settled in for the next few days. Air quality is mostly ‘moderate’ and the top temperature today will be 33 degrees.

Monday tide times.

Mostly ‘moderate’ air quality around Phuket.

Sunday, April 21, 2024 – Phuket weather, sunset times, air quality and tides (7am)

Some ‘significant’ rain overnight, as forecast yesterday. There will probably be a few more spurts of rain today but also more hot weather. Somewhat overcast at times with a moderate to strong north westerly airstream throughout the day, abating later in the afternoon. A significant increase in air quality around the island, and a top temperature of 33. Rain easing for Monday and Tuesday with a return to hot and mostly sunny conditions.

Tide times for Sunday.

Much improved air quality.

Saturday, April 20, 2024 – Phuket weather, sunset times, air quality and tides (7am)

So yesterday’s ‘random shower’ did eventuate around midday in the middle of the island – Phuket Town, Kathu – and was brief as forecast. Might get the same later today, perhaps in the evening. Just watch out for the looming dark clouds heading your way. Otherwise a hot and sunny day with some fresh north westerly winds. The prevailing wind today is kicking up some big surf from the Andaman Sea making swimming conditions quite dangerous for most swimmers. Air quality is slightly improved from yesterday. A top temperature of 34.

Morning radar shows a few storm cells offshore from the island and Phang Nga…

Whilst the hot weather continues, we have a north westerly air stream over the island today, bringing down some of the poor air from up north. Air quality is only ‘moderate’ whilst hot and fine conditions continue, but with a few random tropical storm cells in the area that could produce a quick shower later in the day. Moderate north westerly winds abating. A top temperature of 34.

Thursday, April 18, 2024 – Phuket weather, sunset times, air quality and tides (7am)

Whilst this patch of hot and dry weather continues, and the dams get lower and lower, the countdown is on for the annual wet season. Will it start tomorrow? Or next month? Or…? Statistically, the rains usually start in the last weeks of April and, on average, May has twice the amount of rain, compared to April.

At this stage there is no rain on the horizon other than a short, random summer storm which really can’t be forecast anyway. Air quality has returned to ‘moderate’ today, the winds are light to moderate, mostly from the west but tending north-westerly tomorrow. Top temperature today is 34.

Hot, hotter and hottest. No sign of any respite to the island’s hot season with another hot, clear day. BUT there is a small chance of a random tropical rain storm later in the day… keep your eyes to eastern skies to see if anything develops. Good air quality report for Phuket today. Generally, some moderate westerly winds early, abating to light and variable later in the day. A top temperature of 34 today. More to come over the next week.

These will ease tomorrow and become light and variable. A much-improved air quality report today. Very low chance of rain for at least the next three days. A top temperature today of 34.

Saturday, April 13, 2024 – Phuket weather, sunset times, air quality and tides (7am)

Sawasdee pi mai! Happy Songkran, the Thai New Year. And, appropriately, it’s going to be so hot you’ll be grateful for a bucket of water to be thrown on you, or maybe a light sprinkle. It’s all fun as Thailand celebrates the ‘official’ start of the west season (although the rain will kick off at different times around the Kingdom. In Phuket, the rain ‘should’ start by the end of the month.

Today it will be hot with light and variable winds, tending easterly. Air quality is measured as ‘moderate’ today and there will be more of the same tomorrow. A top temperature of 34 today.

Perhaps appropriately, very hot as we settle into the Songkran holidays. Today will be very busy with people travelling home, along with tourists arriving for the fun and the water fights. Probably a few days where staying off the roads would be advised. Very hot for today and the weekend, mostly sunny with a small chance of a quick shower. (Don’t worry, there will be man-made showers around for the next few days). Moderate, mostly, easterly winds and a clear air report from iqair.com.

Tomorrow will be sunnier with moderate to fresh easterly winds and a top of 35 degrees. Better air quality report today and should improve, again, for tomorrow.

Another hot day but with plenty of high cloud cover. Light and variable winds make it a great day offshore, although there will be some north westerly sea breezes along the west coast during the afternoon. The air pollution report is the worst in a long time, although the afternoon se breeze may improve the situation. But the air here in the south is many times better than Bangkok or northern Thailand today. North easterly winds will return again from late Saturday into Sunday. Top temperature today of 33 degrees, and 34 for Saturday and Sunday. Get ready for a warm and dry weekend.
