Like all of Thailand, Sukhothai has three seasons: the "cool" season from November to February, the "hot" season from March to May, and the "rainy" season from June to October. The cool season is the traditional time to visit, but it's also when sights will be the most crowded, and hotel rates the highest. Conventional wisdom has it that the rainy season is the worst time to come, but this is not necessarily true. The rains generally occur in short, sometimes violent, cloudbursts which usually come in the late afternoon. If you plan your day accordingly, you can do your sightseeing in the morning, and be relaxing in a spa when the rains arrive.
There is no regularly reporting weather station in Sukhothai. The information shown here is for the neighboring city of Phitsunalok. See Weather Underground for more detailed forecast information.

As you can see, the "cool" season is not really that cold. At most, you might feel the need for a light sweater at night. While April is the hottest month, this is also the month when the traditional Thai new year, Songkran, is celebrated. There is almost always a big event put on in Sukhothai at this time, as well as during Loy Krathong in November, a holiday which supposedly has its origins at Sukhothai.
