You'll hear everything from "No problem, come on over" to "It rained for days!"
This is the place to get the scoop on Phuket's weather - from local opinions to links to weather charts, weather histories and more.  Even daily weather commentaries from a dive shop on the island!

The short story is that Phuket has a fairly typical tropical weather pattern.  Two seasons really, a hot season, which is fairly dry and a rainy season, which is a little cooler (though it never really gets cold).  Check the chart below for exact totals.  Some like the rainy season because it cools the weather down a little.  The rain will rarely change your daily plans. 

Typically (if such a thing exists), there is a good afternoon thundershower (20-60 minutes) during the rainy season and a good hard rain in the middle of the night.  But, the island does get the occasional 2-3 day storm, which you might not enjoy if it is in the middle of your vacation.

Here's a chart of the weather from Alex Malcolm.


Below is the latest weather from Phuket International Airport.

For a more detailed discussion of the rainy season in particular, check this thread at the Lonely Planet website: Thailand Wet Season Information.

There you go - with all that information - you'll be better informed than anyone about when to visit Phuket.
