Weather in Bangkok

Thailand is a tropical country, so it is hot throughout the year, but the best time to visit Bangkok is between November and February during the dry season. During the rainy season between May and September, humidity is very high and the downpours are short but violent and the streets of Bangkok often flood. The hottest time of year is between March and May when the air-conditioning is on overdrive and the sweat pours from the pores.

The maximum temperature is the highest temperature forecast between dawn and dusk, and the minimum temperature is the lowest temperature expected from dusk on the day in question to dawn the next day. The temperature is in °C, or Celsius.
Wind speed and direction are the conditions expected at midday. Wind direction is based on a 16 point compass. W, SW, SSW, etc. The wind direction states where the wind originates. Wind speed is listed in MPH or miles per hour.

  • 51 to 70 is moderate to low
  • 71 to 80 is moderate
  • 81 to 90 is moderate to high
