It helps to know what kind of weather to expect when you arrive. We could tell you it's great weather in Pattaya most of the year.
We think Pattaya weather is super. That's one of the reasons we are still here. Displayed in the box near the Pattaya "Temperature & Rainfall" table are the weather conditions in Pattaya for the next five days including today.
Also in the weather box below is a special link to the weather site which will give you the Pattaya weather forecast ten days in advance from today.
That should be useful even for those lucky foreigners who live in Pattaya. The "Temperature & Rainfall" table displays the average monthly rainfall temperature for Pattaya.
We use the 5 day advance Pattaya weather report when we are planning an excursion to another location in Thailand.
Sometimes we need a break from "Party City".
On some occasions we travel to an area near Sattahip where there is a quiet beach with crystal clear water,
delicious food, lots of shady trees, and no beach walking vendors.
It is a great beach to swim at high tide.
We prefer to swim at most beaches around Pattaya on the high tide.
At low tide it is just too shallow and you have to walk out a long way to reach a depth at which you can swim. Click on this link to check out the: tidal chart for levels predicted at Sattahip.
After-The-Rush has more details about how to get to the tranquil beach near Sattahip and a few other secluded beaches in the area.
September and October are the wettest months. Sometimes with violent lightning storms.
November to February is hot but the best weather for a holiday in Pattaya.
March to May is hot and humid and not such a good time to come to Pattaya for a holiday.
April is the hottest month.
The "Temperature & Rainfall" table in the top fold of the page above displays the typical figures for a twelve month period.
The above banner represents the Tsunami Alarm website where you can view a record of all the seismic activity above magnitude 5 around the world including a record of all tsunami warnings issued since September 2005. The website offers tsunami warnings to your mobile phone. Better to be woken up than sleep through.
Whilst on a fishing expedition off the coast of Pattaya a friend shot this picture of a precipitous storm cloud hovering over his return path to Pattaya bay.
He reported feeling a little uneasy about his safety and the seaworthiness of the boat he and his friends hired from Pattaya Beach.
A storm often appears without any warning then after twenty minutes of drenching everything in its path it disappears as quickly as it arrived.
Everything is cooled down, the air is fresh, the dust settled. This is the rainy season in Thailand.
