Koh Samui, Thailand daily weather update; 5th November, 2010
Samui is doing a lot better today. This morning has some strong wind but no rain and all night there was electricity. The forecast for today is still a bit of rain and than a few days with hardly any rain and actually some sunshine. Time to do laundry! Current temp at 7am is 27.3C
For everybody planning to travel to Samui in the near future; It's not an all clear yet, the aftermath of this storm will require a lot of cleaning up and some roads will need to be fixed but right now most important thing is to keep an eye out on a depression that's forming over Vietnam and Cambodia and hope it's not coming Thailand's way! Things are easing up though for right now although more rain is predicted early next week.
Koh Lanta, where I'm about to finish an IDC, two more days to go, including today, has overcast and right now it doesn't look like we'll have a lot of sunshine here today. Current temp at 7am is 24.8C
Yesterday saw massive improvements around Samui, a lot of the flooding receded, most shops are open again although some shells are emptying out quickly, ATM's were working again and the airport was in full swing, trying to get to grips with the backlog of passengers. Very important to many people was that their electricity was back on again and that the rain stopped pouring down like it did the previous days. max temp reached 27.2C
Koh Lanta had a nice and sunny day. Max temp reached around 31C
