12 Jul Perfect Khao Lak Weather
July began with some great weather in Khao Lak. The forecast looked like it would continue into the second week of July. That’s exactly what happened and what a glorious week it was. Sunshine and blue skies everyday and so little rain it is hardly worth mentioning.
You would easily be mistaken that you had arrived in Khao Lak in February or March such was the weather.

Some more dramatic skies on Monday in Khao Lak
The day started nicely with more fine weather. Blue with some giant white fluffy clouds. Shortly after 7:00am a large grey mass moved low over town. After a few splatters of rain there was a sudden downpour which lasted around 20 minutes. After that it brightened a bit but more grey clouds hung low in the sky. By 8:30am there was mixed sunshine, blue skies with white and dark clouds covering large portions of the sky. Another quick shower at 8:45am. Not the best start to the week but our area was getting a little parched so the rain was needed. After the early showers it stayed dry, the low clouds moved East and we returned to our nice weather spell. Lunch time and the sky was a mixture of blue skies, white fluffy clouds and dark low, looming rain clouds again. At 12:30pm and it was still dry since the early morning rain. Another glorious afternoon in Khao Lak. Top weather as we headed into a hot, balmy evening.
Summary: Low 26˚ High 31˚ Rain 0.3mm Humid and overcast throughout the day

Lovely skies in the early evening
The weather forecast at the start of the week predicted the possibility of rain in the evening on the 11th. Waking up to blue skies and sunshine certainly showed little sign of potential rain. But we know in Khao Lak the weather can change in an instant. Anyway, thats just the forecast, right now more glorious weather for Thursday morning. The weather was hot all though midday and well into the afternoon. Late afternoon, early evening and the sky was hazy but the weather definitely hot and dry. Just before midnight we heard the sound rumble of thunder and saw a couple of flashes of lightening.

White clouds not threatening any rain 🙂
The thunder from the previous evening did not materialise into anything. It was dry early in the morning. Not wanting this to sound monotonous but more perfect weather. Blue skies with only a few wispy clouds, a few thicker clouds over the hills looking East. All day it was perfect. Later afternoon there were more clouds forming in the East. Thin white clouds over Khao Lak but remaining hot and dry. Again light at night we heard the rumble of thunder.
Summary: Low 26˚ High 31˚ Rain 0.28mm Humid and mostly cloudy throughout the day.
