Koh Samui, Thailand daily weather update; 6th July, 2015

Today's weather;

It's cloudy over Koh Samui and today I doubt that we will have a lot of sun or any sun at all. Current temp at 7am is 27.2C 

Koh Samui, Thailand daily weather update; 6th July, 2015

Durian tree at a durian plantation on top of Khow Tanim (Tanim mountain) near the Magic Garden, the durian season is slowing starting up on Samui in contrast to other provinces where it is already in full swing

Yesterday saw a cloudy day with only a rare burst of sunshine and a tropical shower around 6.30pm. Max temp reached 32.6C

The forecast changed a little bit, with regards to the end of this ten day period, in general still lots of strong wind and lots of cloud cover but next Sunday will not be as stormy as predicted yesterday and I expect this to even level out a bit more over the next days

Koh Samui, Thailand daily weather update; 5th July, 2015

Today's weather;

There's a thin cloud layer over Koh Samui this morning and looking back at recent days, it will be no surprise if this cloud layer will evaporate once the sun starts heating up a bit. That would mean that the last seven days have been sunny! The wind has momentarily died down. Current temp at 7am is 28C

Koh Samui, Thailand daily weather update; 5th July, 2015


Yesterday saw a very cloudy start of the day but around 9am the clouds had already evaporated and the sun broke through once more. It was nice and warm with a very, very strong breeze. Max temp reached 34.8C

The forecast is changing ever so slightly, the general tendency is that there still will be strong to very strong wind over the next ten days, with an occasional shower and the current prediction shows very strong wind, almost storm like, as of next Sunday with plenty of rain to accompany the wind. This might easily change once we get nearer to next weekend.

Koh Samui, Thailand daily weather update; 4th July, 2015

Today's weather;

It looks we may have some more cloud cover today over Koh Samui, a fairly thick cloud mass is blocking the sun out at the moment, I can only hope for the sun to break through at a later stage. Current temp at 7am is 26.7C

Koh Samui, Thailand daily weather update; 4th July, 2015

A yearly occurrence this time of the year, low tide round the island. This year under a sunny sky, as spotted on the way from Bang Rak to Fisherman Village

Yesterday saw once more a lovely and sunny day although the wind has definitely arrived, there was a very strong breeze all day long, at times even a bit more then just a breeze. There were also white caps on the ocean waves and it must have been rough out there when you were out and about on a boat to the other Gulf islands. Max temp reached 33.8C

The forecast predicts that the strong wind remains for the next ten days, but that also more clouds may move in and the sunny days are not likely to come back soon. There's a also a higher chance of some rain for a day or two after the weekend.

Koh Samui, Thailand daily weather update; 3rd July, 2015

Today's weather;

It's a bit of a mixed bag this morning around Koh Samui, but it looks like we will have a fifth consecutive day of sunshine around the island, once the sun heats up a bit. Current temp at 7am is already 29C

Koh Samui, Thailand daily weather update; 3rd July, 2015

Chaweng Beach, in front of Al's Resort, two days ago, on a sunny day, just before a tropical shower was brewing up

Yesterday saw a cloudy morning but once the sun heated up, the clouds evaporated and it was blue skies galore once again. The wind did pick up though, thee was a breeze. Max temp reached 33.8C

The forecast remains steady with strong winds over the next ten days predicted but only with a few occasional tropical showers and plenty of overcast. It's not as bad as it originally looked like.

Welcome to July 2015

It's already the first day of a new month and it's time to say 'Welcome to July 2015'.

For the Koh Samui weather forecast in July, expect in general a mixed bag, with rain, sometimes strong wind but also sunny days. The forecast for the start of this July though, it's not looking that great. In a day or two we should have storm like wind and this may hold on for a full week, with showers included. Not a great start of the month.

Welcome to July 2015

Sunset over the Northern tip of Koh Phangan

I will be spending all month on Samui, a nice break from my usual travelling life style and a good to spend time with my family. This however also means that there will be not that much income so book your hotels through my Agoda and/or Hotels Combined links and don't be afraid to make a donation.

Yesterday's full moon over the Gulf of Thailand

Yesterday saw a very sunny and warm day over Koh Samui with a max temp of 33.6C

The forecast has not changed, it actually seems to cement the upcoming storm and it may be a long and stormy week ahead of us with the wind starting to pick up on Friday for almost a week long, accompanied by a fair amount of rain showers. At the moment it's not looking that good until 10th July.

Goodbye to June 2015

It's time to say 'Goodbye to June 2015 '. We're on the last day of this month and I always use this to have a brief look back at the weather and other events during this month that we're about to leave behind us.

It was not a great June version, we had lots of overcast and regular tropical showers. Similar to the last three years as you can find in my archives. We also had sunny days, but not too many, yesterday was a great example though with nice blue skies.

Goodbye to June 2015

A typical view this June 2015, cloudy skies and relatively quiet beaches around the island, this is Silver Beach near Lamai

The beginning of the month saw me in Moalboal in the Philippines for a PADI IDC and upon returning home I immediately took off for Phuket to run for the 4th time the Laguna Phuket Marathon, I ran the half marathon there. The same day it was back to Samui and I pretty much started another PADI IDC but this time on home ground, on Koh Samui. Right now I'm in the middle of Instructor Specialty training and we should be able to wrap this up by tomorrow.

Last Friday I injured my leg with a pull in my calf and running will unfortunately be sidelined for a few weeks. Sadly I will miss out on a few races at the mainland because of the injury. My leg is doing better already, it will however take some time for the muscle to heal.

It looks like all of July I will be at home on Koh Samui, a good to spend time with the family.

See you all next month.

Koh Samui, Thailand daily weather update; 29th June, 2015

Today's weather;

It's been a while but we have a partially blue sky again over Koh Samui and the sun is peaking through. Not sure if it will remain like this for the rest of day but a nice morning is in the making. Current temp at 7am is 26.2C

Koh Samui, Thailand daily weather update; 29th June, 2015


After yesterday's picture of the Koh Samui airport landing and take off strip, here's a picture of a plane ready to take off. Taken at almost the same spot

Yesterday saw a tiny bit of sunshine during the morning hours around Koh Samui but the late afternoon, around 5pm we also had a tropical shower and a couple of strong wind bursts. Max temp reached 31.8C

The forecast remained steady for the time being, as of Thursday the wind will pick up and as of next weekend we may have storm like wind conditions and lots of rain for at least five days. We will keep an eye out for this and see if this soup will be really so hot when it's served.
