Current weather in Phuket - 31st August 2015

Difficult during these days to say if weather is bad or at least not so bad so i decided to make a special update about weather in Phuket in August.

The month of August  closed with good weather, despite some rain sea was flat and no wind. There were two or three very hot days at the ed of last week because of the haze from Sumatra. Then a mild wind on Saturday and a night rain on Sunday cleared the air

During the week was great with flat sea and clear sky, all activities and tours where possible.

But be aware that despite flat sea dugin Summer it is very dangerous to swim off the beaches on Phuket West Coast.

Summer isn't good time for swimm off Phuket west Coast
Do that only where there are lifeguards and only where is allowed (must falgs that are half yellow and half red). Otherwise enjoy a nice walk on the beaches and sunbath.

On 14th August another lovely day and enjoyed riding my motorbike from Patong to Kamala , this was high tide at north end of Patong Beach.

Today 13th August  was a nice sunshine gave the good morning in Phuket that is back to blue sky and very nice condition to fully enjoy holidays and the island life.

Sunday 9th sky was covered in clouds but no rain and mild wind, while Monday 10th was a very good and hot day can see from the picture taken in the afternoon from The Nap Blue Moon suite balcony.

But last night rain started and this morning is still pouring down, no wind  that should pick up in the afternoon and clear the sky.

Forecast say that should be good all week.

The first picture shows the situation now, 16:30 on 5th August 2015 on the north west side of Phuket island

Sky is clear and can even see blue sky at distance so probably down the islands of Racha Yai and Phi Phi was a good day with some sun.

Wind picked up since yesterday so wave out in open sea can big between one and two meters. While on sheltered side of the islands can stay in flat water and enjoy the warm sea

Don't forget that sea water temperature in Phuket is always between 27 and 30 Celsius, very nice to swim and dive there.

Phuket Island
Relax and enjoy holidays
Enjoy holidays and relax, and if it will pour down for one or two hours sit and wait for the rain to pass and enjoy the show of a tropical storm

Rain beautiful isn't it?
