Good afternoon,
There is probably a post concerning KTP climate, but could not find it.
Coud you please tell me if September is a pleasant month for a KTP visit?
we will be there from 20th to 26th
temperature in the day? night?
Risk of rain?

Thanks a lot for your help
(it is snowing in France - glagla)
Cheers
Edie

Hello edie,

The weather in the KTP can be very unpredictable :lol:

However, the end of Sept should give you pleasantly warm days and cool nights. 5 min to 30 max at a guess, with every variation in between and even colder nights and hotter days :shock:

It should also not rain, but you could be lucky :D

One thing you definately shouldn't get is snow ! (just feeling sorry for all the european mites at the moment)

Sept is actually a very nice time to visit :thumbs_up:

Well, don't feel sorry, you know each season has its positiv sides.
like for example, i might be lucky enough tomorrow to be unable to go to work and be forced to stay at home...
haha, just kidding :wink: (or not)
please don't tell my boss :pray:

We experienced thunderstorms in KTP but yours with the hailstones was spectacular.

Well captured :cam: Thanks for sharing. Love the rainbow :thumbs_up:

Hi all... Just had a call from Jannie who asked me to let you know that KTP is currently offline due to a massive cloudburst - 52 mm of rain at TR - with more clouds building up and more rain on the way. They might be offline for a day or 2 ....
