1. Re: Kho lak weather in December.

Thunderstorms are normal in a tropical climate but December is a good time to go and if there are any storms they are usually short heavy downpours (and quite awesome really). We were there in late November/December 2016 and had rain for 10 out of 14 days I think but don't despair, it was hot and sunny most of the time with (welcome) intermittent cloud and the rain (usually in the late afternoon) lasted less than 30 minutes most days.

Not sure if you have read this thread which is pinned at the top of the Thailand forum but it explains the forecasts well https://www.tripadvisor.com.au/ShowTopic-g29…

We went in Dec 2014 & had lovely weather,with just a couple of downpours,throughout the 2 weeks.this was the beginning of Dec.

Since then,we have visited jan,March & April,with March being the hottest,with no rain at all.

I would go back in Dec,it’s a lovely time to visit.

There may be rain in December, usually in the afternoon and not lasting long but rarely thunderstorms albeit that is the icon shown on weather websites.

You can see average weather for previous years at www.holiday-weather.com/khao_lak/averages/
