Keep in mind that if you're looking at sites like weather.com, you'll always see thunderstorms predicted for Bangkok. Frankly, I think they never change their graphics.

I find most western-based weather sites to be astonishingly lazy and incorrect when it comes to Thailand weather. Every time sites said 'rain', it's been sunny. If I followed their forecasts, our entire last 2 vacations would've been pouring the whole time and I think, if I recall correctly, we got about 10 total minutes of rain on the whole trip.
