Phuket Island Weather & Climate
While Phuket Island generally presents hot and humid weather throughout the year, we can loosely separate it into three seasons: “Hot”, “Hotter” and “Oh My”! Jokes apart, while the temperature around here remains roughly unchanged across the year, we can differentiate the periods as follows:
November-February: “Cool Season”
Locals consider November to February the “cool” season. While still pretty hot, the weather tends to be more tolerable in terms of temperature and humidity. It’s comparable to Florida’s summer weather with 25-33°C temperature, with occasional short and heavy thundershowers in the afternoons and evenings. The sea is generally calm as the monsoon wind blows gently from east, leaving Phuket Island in a sheltered position.
March-May: “Dry Season”
The hot & dry season is normally considered between early March and early May. During this time Phuket Island sees little to no precipitations and temperatures that often exceed 35 °C (95 °F). This is the favorite time of the year by most Phuket visitors as the weather tends to be quite stable with the sun shining as well as calm & clear sea pretty much every day. While this is certainly a good recipe for a dream Phuket holiday, the heat can be quite intense.
May-October: “Green Season”
Between May and October, during the summer season, the southwestern monsoon wind consistently affects Phuket Island. This brings more frequent precipitations, stronger westerly wind, and – consequently – choppier sea on average. This isn’t necessarily a negative thing though, as the green season still sees plenty of sunny days with calm seas. At the same time, the island is not as packed as during the touristy high season. The rainiest month is usually September.
