Weather forecast Koh Phangan


I'm planning to visit Thong Nai Pan Noi Beach area in the next couple of weeks (26th May - 5th June) but weather looks terrible almost rain or thunderstorms from tomorrow onwards until my stay. Not sure whether to make my way if it is gloomy and overcast for the whole time? I was looking forward to some sun!

Current updates on weather would be great? Fingers crossed it's not all grey!

The weather forecast is not what you are saying, most sites give terrible generic forecasts for Thailand, mostly storm icons and rain and as it's a tropical country it's party true as rain can happen anytime. However, the specific area you are looking at is currently sunny, with only 20% chance of rain in the next couple of days dropping to 10% on Sunday, so basically very little chance of rain, maybe a passing storm in the evening is my guess which is again normal. It will be fine and you have every chance of getting sunburnt so be careful. The site that Pea has given you is the most reliable to use and don't just focus on the storm icons, which is what most people do, as you will see these frequently on Thai weather updates, it means storm activity is around and not imminent.

It has been extremely hot and sunny over the past few days. There has been rain in the evening/night but nothing that should spoil your plans. In fact, it has been so hot & humid that the rain has been welcoming.

I will give you an update again next week ;)
