How does it stay so hot at night?

Recommended Posts

10pm and its 86 degrees F here in Pattaya. I don't get how this is possible. When I was in BKK someone told me the immenisty of the city traps the heat, but Pattaya is not that large.

 

How does it stay so hot at night, then, well after the sun has gone down? The high during the daytime was 88 and looks to be 87 tomorrow so its like the sun isn't even much of a factor in the temperature.

Lots of warm water nearby and the wind is coming up from the south.

 

For cooler temperatures look for somewhere near an ocean rather than on a gulf.

Living on almost the equator you may find it gets  hot.
The ground  heats up during the day and radiates that heat back out at night.

Great beer drinking weather, sit under a fan in the bar , Happy Happy

The massive amount of concrete used in all the buildings and roads soaks up heat during the day and releases it at night..the buildings also restrict airflow.

Humidity, the higher it is the less the air cools off at night. Deserts being just the opposite; no humidity so the temperature differential is a lot more.

These two posts answer the OP's question.

I can explain in detail, BUT I will have to charge you 2000 Baht.

Have you been on Earth for more than a day or two ?

Huh?  So it only stays hot in areas of "civilization"? Mmmm...........:whistling:

 

I will run with the plausible explanation of being in or near the tropics, although the massive amount of concrete will possibly contribute a few more degrees.

If its overcast the clouds will trap the heat of the day. No wind also plays a part. Plus some atmospheric conditions.

I reckon all the nocturnal exercise is at least partly responsible.

Bangkok is notoriously steamy at night-sometimes worse than the day. it's a swamp with all of the heat from concrete and water coming out in the evening.  Pattaya in the summer can get pretty sticky too, with the Southwest wind blowing up warm, wet air.  Last night in P was especially muggy, like a Bangkok night.

O'h what, no one suggested it's all as a result of global warming (climate change) ....55555555

The death valley in the states gets Damm hot in the day and cool to cold at night. The sea and concrete let's it stay toasty here. One good thing I don't need a water heater for a shower as the silver metal tank outside makes for a nice warm shower when it is hot.
