Bangkok has a tropical monsoon climate and is said to have the highest average temperature of any city in the world. Average temperatures in the city are about 2C higher than the ones shown for the Don Muang Airport at 1960-1990 period.  The coldest temperatures were recorded in January 1924, January 1955, January 1974 and December 1999.

The coldest daytime maximum temperature was 22.3C recorded in December 1999. Hailstorms are virtually unheard in the city, since it has recorded a only a single hailstorm in the past 50 years.

Below is a detailed weather review from the National Oceanographic and Atmospheric Administration in the United States.  The weather is from the Don Muang Airport (the old international airport) and is representative for the whole city.  

Immediately below this chart is a chart for the eastern part of the city - from the weather station at Suvarnabhumi Airport (the new international airport).


Suvarnabhumi Airport


Bangkok lies about two meters above sea level. This low ground level causes problems for the protection of the city against floods during the monsoon season. Often after a downpour, water in canals and the river overflows the banks, resulting in massive floods. The Bangkok Metropolitan Administration (BMA) has recently installed higher planks alongside some canals to keep water levels from reaching street level. There are however some downsides for Bangkok's extensive canal routes, as the city is rumored to be sinking an average of two inches a year as it lies entirely on a swamp.  Some reports say that the city is sinking as much as four inches a year, and this combined with rising sea levels will leave Bangkok under 50 cm to 100 cm of water by 2025.
