Welcome to the forum konrad, usually it is sunny, a little cooler and can be quite windy - the sea can be rough and only really starts to level out in March/April.

Rained all day yesterday and most of the night - seems to have cleared up this morning. The sea has been calm and there tides are getting lower exposing a lot more of the beach.

We are planing to come down to BS in a couple of weeks, from Chiang mai ,and can tell you the rainy season started with a vengeance 2 months early. Thai weather reports are notoriously incorrect so any info posted here is very useful.

This is usually pretty accurate, it changes every 15 minutes you can get the latest one by refreshing this link: http://www2.tmd.go.th/radar/chumphon/cmp240_latest.jpg

The only way to get the ocean conditions is to go and have a look down the beach!

Thanks Buksida ,never come across this before. Love most Thai weather forecast they usually say ,up my way in CM ,sunny with chance of rain,like backing a horse both ways. I presume tourist numbers are down with the low season starting. This weekend is a 4 day holiday for some I believe.

Seems to be starting the wet season weather patterns, clear and bright in the mornings and clouding over with a quick shower in the afternoons.

Been rather wet for the last few days, this place sure gets a lot of rain when compared to two hours up the road!

We could be in for a bit of a heavy storm over the next few days ... this one seems to be heading our way:

A great "bonjour" from a french family new on the forum.
We will arrive for the first time in Thailand in 8 days and spend two weeks in BS.
So we have 2 questions:
- are there jelly fish at the present time in BS ?
- what kind of weather should we expect to during a typical daytime during this period of the year ?
Thanks a lot for your future informations.
