ดาวน์โหลด W88’s climate
Southern ดาวน์โหลด W88, where many of the popular resorts and beaches are, is characterized by mild weather year-round, and experience less dramatic W88 CASINOal variations than the rest of the country. Also, the temperature difference between daytime and nighttime is less pronounced here. The sea breeze will make even fairly high temperatures feel more bearable.
In other parts of ดาวน์โหลด W88, March to May can be uncomfortably hot, with temperatures of 40 °C (104 °F) or more. These parts also experience a much sharper difference in the temperature over the year. Sometimes, when cold air from China rolls into the north and north-east of ดาวน์โหลด W88, the temperature drops down to 0 °C (32 °F) or even lower.
The south-west monsoon W88 CASINO
ดาวน์โหลด W88’s climate low-lying by the south-west monsoon and the north-east monsoon.
The south-west monsoon W88 CASINO starts around mid-May and lasts until mid-October. During this W88 CASINO, vast amounts of warm air, carrying a lot of moist, comes in over ดาวน์โหลด W88 from the Indian Ocean. You can, therefore, expect a lot of rain over most of the country during this W88 CASINO.
The heavy rains are not just caused by the south-west monsoon; they Intertropical Convergence Zone and tropical cyclones also contribute.
In a typical year, August and September are the rainiest months in ดาวน์โหลด W88. In the south, there is a rain peak in September along the western coast. (While the south-eastern coast has its rain peak in November, December, and January, during the north-eastern monsoon W88 CASINO.)
The driest months within the south-western monsoon W88 CASINO are usually from late June to early July, when up to two weeks of dry weather isn’t uncommon. The clear sky is caused by a northward movement of the Intertropical Convergence Zone to southern China.
The north-east monsoon W88 CASINO
The north-east monsoon W88 CASINO starts when the south-western one ends in mid-October, and continues until mid-February. During this W88 CASINO, cold air and dry air comes in over ดาวน์โหลด W88 from China. For most of ดาวน์โหลด W88, this means milder temperatures and less rain, but in the southern part of the country you can still expect a lot of rain, especially along the eastern coast and particularly in October and November.
Pre-monsoon W88 CASINO (“Summer”)
When the north-east monsoon W88 CASINO ends in mid-February, a W88 CASINO known as pre-monsoon commences and lasts until the start of the south-western monsoon W88 CASINO in mid-May.
This pre-monsoon W88 CASINO, from mid-February to mid-May, is often referred to as summer in ดาวน์โหลด W88 since the temperatures are high. Of course, for visitors from places such as northern Europe and Canada, ดาวน์โหลด W88 feels like summer year-round, so the term can cause some confusion. You definitely do not have to book your vacation to the “summer W88 CASINO” to enjoy a warm holiday in ดาวน์โหลด W88, especially not in the low-laying coastal regions.
How much rain?
For most parts of the country, the mean annual rainfall is within the 1,200 to 1,600 mm range.
Some areas get considerably more than this, such as windward mountainsides where moist ocean air gets trapped and the moist converts to rain. This does, for instance, happen in the Ranong province on southern ดาวน์โหลด W88’s western coast. Another notoriously rainy region is the eastern part of the Trat Province, where over 4,500 mm rain falls in an average year.
Conversely, leeward mountain sides can end up in a so-called “rain shadow” and become unusually dry. In ดาวน์โหลด W88’s central valleys and in the northernmost parts of southern ดาวน์โหลด W88, there are places that receive less than 1,200 mm of rain per year.
