1st April, 2009

Today's weather;

It's raining on Koh Samui! This is not an April's Fool message! At the moment it's dry but there's heavy overcast and it looks like there will be a bit more rain today. Current temp at 7 am 25.2C.

Yesterday was a nice day, the usual hot and sunny weather until 8 pm when all of a sudden it started very unexpectedly to rain. Than last night shortly before 3 am I was woken up by a massive storm that lasted for about 15 minutes, strong wind and hard rain and in total 13.5mm rain came down yesterday. Very refreshing by the way and cooled everything down nicely!
A strange beginning to the hottest month of the year! Max temp reached 32C nonetheless.

Hi Camille,

I'm going to Koh Tao for my third time arriving on 9th April - the last time I was there for songkran was in 2006 and the weather was typically hot and dry. Do you think we will have a hot and dry experience this April? I was in Samui feb/march last year and it was continuously overcast and rainy so I have everything crossed for good weather!

Love the blog.

Hi Jen,

Thanks for the thumbs up on my blog.

Usually April is cork dry, but that's already been shattered by today's weather ;-)
Last eyar saw actual rain during Songkran, a very unusual happening!

In general it should be very dry and very hot during April!
