Koh Samui, Thailand daily weather update; 23rd January, 2017


Today's weather;

It's cloudy but dry this morning over Koh Samui but earlier this morning it seemed brighter compared to right now at 10am. Some very light showers may be expected today. Current temp at 10am is 28C 

Koh Samui, Thailand daily weather update; 23rd January, 2017

Koh Samui, Thailand daily weather update; 23rd January, 2017; A new building is being constructed in Wat Laem Suwannaram or better known as Wat Plai Laem. This new building will house a cooking area and covered or roofed area where people can sit when social events are happening, like when boys join the monk hood or when somebody passed away.  Family members will cook and people will sit at tables to eat, like as in under the tent as on the picture

Yesterday saw a very nice morning with sunshine but later during the day clouds moved in with a few very light showers at some parts of the island. Max temp reached 31C

The forecast for the next seven days at last is showing some improvement. Cloudy until Friday with an occasional light shower being expected and after Friday the sun may break through in partially cloudy skies. The rain seems to make way, at last!

Koh Samui, Thailand daily weather update; 22nd January, 2017


Today's weather;

It's partially cloudy and sunny over Koh Samui this morning, at least the North Eastern part of the island, with a late update, due to my Sunday morning long runs. It looks like it will stay like this for the rest of the day, so enjoy some good beach time today or any other activity you signed up for or are planning to do. 
It has become really difficult over the last couple of days to predict what is going to happen, it seems all predicted to be cloudy days turn into partially cloudy and sunny days and all partially cloudy days seem to turn into cloudy and rainy days. Odd!
The current temp at 10am is 29C

Don't forget to visit the Samui Green Market later today, as of 3pm at Fisherman's Village.

Koh Samui, Thailand daily weather update; 22nd January, 2017; The beach inf front of Hansar Resort in Fisherman's Village, under a nice partially clouded sky and in the sunshine!

Yesterday saw a cloudy day all day long, with some very light rain at times. This in contrast to what was predicted, a partially cloudy day with some sunshine! Max temp reached nonetheless 30C

The forecast for the next seven days predicts cloudy days with a light wind until Wednesday and rain possibly until Friday morning. This should be monsoon like rain, with a shower here and there but not non stop, all day long like rain.

Koh Samui, Thailand daily weather update; 21st January, 2017


Today's weather;

It's cloudy and greyish this morning over Koh Samui and it feels like rain is in the air. Last night I woke up at 2am from a very strong rain shower, accompanied by some thunder. All this despite a glorious sunrise around 6.30am at the East coast of the island, when the sun rose from the ocean as a big burning orange ball. A beautiful sight. Unfortunately the clouds over our island seem undisturbed by this and stick together. During the afternoon rain is predicted. Current temp at 8am is 25C

Koh Samui, Thailand daily weather update; 21st January, 2017; Performers or artists yesterday as part of the visiting Spark Circus at W Retreat in Maenam

Yesterday saw a very wet morning with plenty of drizzle and light but constant rain but there was a much nicer afternoon, which was dry although the sun didn't really come out to play. Max temp reached 30C

Koh Samui, Thailand daily weather update; 21st January, 2017

Koh Samui, Thailand daily weather update; 21st January, 2017: Walking street yesterday evening at Fisherman's Village

The forecast for the next seven days hasn't changed that much, mostly cloudy to partially cloudy skies with each day some rain being predicted, not all day long rain but occasionally a shower and it doesn't look like a lot of sunshine can be expected during the next seven days. Tomorrow may see some very strong wind durin  the afternoon. I can only hope to be proven wrong.

Koh Samui, Thailand daily weather update; 20th January, 2017


Today's weather;

It's partially cloudy this early in the morning around Koh Samui and it should stay like this for the remainder of the day. Another sunny day is in the making, enjoy the beach or any other activity you're up to today. Current temp at 7am is 27C

Today marks 100 days since the death of King Bhumibol. From today onward, TV stations are allowed to show normal programs and have logos in color.

Koh Samui, Thailand daily weather update; 20th January, 2017; The Meh Guanim statue at Wat Plai Laem or Wat Laem Suwannaram enjoying the sun again, yesterday afternoon

Yesterday saw a a very nice, warm and dry day around the island with a max temp of 32C
It's a relief to feel the sun being out again and enjoying the warm weather.

The forecast for the next seven days is hard to predict. The last 3 or 4 days were supposed to have rain but the sun broke out instead in a partially cloudy sky. The next seven days have the same profile predicted, cloudy skies with rain showers, so what is it going to be, rain as predicted or sunshine as it was the last couple of days? We will see and find out.

It looks however that the floods of January 2017 are behind us, most roads are dry now and each day the run off and water still standing on roads is becoming less and less.

Koh Samui, Thailand daily weather update; 19th January, 2017


Today's weather;

It's cloudy this morning over Koh Samui with a very rare break in the clouds this early on. According to the forecasts it should remain mostly cloudy and there is a good chance of a few showers today.
All roads around the island are clearing up and the floods are receding everywhere. Current temp at 7am is 27C

Koh Samui, Thailand daily weather update; 19th January, 2017

Koh Samui, Thailand daily weather update; 19th January, 2017; Wat Plai Laem or Wat Laem Suwannaram yesterday morning, basking in the sunshine

Yesterday saw a surprisingly nice morning with a partially clouded sky and plenty of sunshine. During the afternoon more clouds move in but it stayed dry in the north eastern corner of our island, other parts may have had some showers. Max temp reached 30C

The forecast for the next seven days predicts a mixture of light wind, cloudy to partially cloudy skies, an occasional sun beam and a high possibility of rain showers each day. Nothing like the recent January floods we had though!

Koh Samui, Thailand daily weather update; 18th January, 2017


Today's weather;

It's partially cloudy, surprisingly, this morning over the Plai Laem and East coast of Koh Samui, after some very hard rain early morning around 4am. A nice sunrise can be seen currently but there's a very strong wind blowing. The forecast for today does predict rain tough but not as much as originally was predicted. Be prepared for some showers today but all roads should remain passable. Current temp at 7am is 27C

Koh Samui, Thailand daily weather update; 18th January, 2017

Koh Samui, Thailand daily weather update; 18th January, 2017; Bang Rak bay yesterday morning, grey, cloudy and wet but planes still coming in and taking off all day yesterday, Samui airport was in full swing all day long

Yesterday saw a very wet morning with a constant drizzle or light rain the whole morning but the afternoon was still cloudy but mostly dry. The whole day all roads remained passable and no real flash floods occurred. There was a very loud and hard thunder storm at around 11pm though. All in all the rain that came down yesterday was not anywhere near the amount that was predicted. Max temp reached 28C

The forecast for the next seven days remained mostly unchanged. All days should have various amounts of rain during the day and night but also dry spells should be in the mix but not much sunshine is expected.

Koh Samui, Thailand daily weather update; 17th January, 2017


Today's weather;

Like clockwork the predicted two days with bad weather, hard wind and lots of rain have showed up over Koh Samui. It's dark and grey and very wet outside. Last night or at least during the early morning, plenty of rain came down already and lots more is expected today with storm like conditions for wind and rain around 10am. The rest of the day should see a strong wind and plenty of rain. Some flash flood may be expected. Current temp at 7am is 24C

Koh Samui, Thailand daily weather update; 17th January, 2017

Koh Samui, Thailand daily weather update; 17th January, 2017; Boats moored in a small bay, protected form hard wind near Big Buddha, last week during a dry spell

Yesterday saw all day long a thick cloud cover but it stayed dry during the day time. In the very early morning at 4am there was a thunderstorm passing over and at 7pm we had some rain. The sun wasn't able to make an appearance although it tried to peek through a few times during the morning hours. Max temp reached 30C

The forecast for the next seven days is not looking that great, plenty of rain and wind expected today and tomorrow, especially around 10am this morning and  this coming night and the rest of the week we should expect more rain, but not so hard and not so much anymore except for Friday, where we may see a break.

Koh Samui, Thailand daily weather update; 16th January, 2017


Today's weather;

It's dark and grey again in the sky over Koh Samui and at 4am this morning we had a thunder storm passing over with hard rain. At the moment it's dry but a few light showers are expected today. Current temp at 7am is a cool 24C

Koh Samui, Thailand daily weather update; 16th January, 2017

Koh Samui, Thailand daily weather update; 16th January, 2017; At last the road in Soi 8 in Plai Laem has collapsed. It was a matter of time when it should happen. During the December rain and floods, the earth underneath part of the road was washed away and during the recent January floods, it got hollowed out even more. Yesterday, during a dry and partially clouded day, the road finally collapsed and I'm afraid it will take a very long time before this will be fixed. Luckily nobody got injured when the road did collapse.

Yesterday saw a partially clouded day with plenty of sunshine peeking through the cloud cover and it stayed dry. Max temp reached 32C

The forecast for the next seven days is not looking that great. The next two days should be the worst days to come during this period, with strong, at times storm like wind and plenty of rain. Not as torrential as early January but plenty enough. Friday may be the only dry-ish day and over the weekend some light rain is expected. It will be interesting to see how the drainage systems will be able to handle this rain, since everything is filled to the brim. Although most roads had dried up, this will be a game changer again.

Koh Samui, Thailand daily weather update; 15th January, 2017


Today's weather;

It's a bit hazy today and the sun is struggling to break through this morning around Koh Samui. The cloud cover may get more clouded during the remainder of the day. Current temp at 9.30am is 28C, still fairly cool and enjoyable.

Koh Samui, Thailand daily weather update; 15th January, 2017

Koh Samui, Thailand daily weather update; 15th January, 2017; Airplanes are completely on schedule again and are flying in over Big Buddha all the time again and at Samui airport it's according to schedule again. Things are back to 'normal' again around the island, however, there's been a lot of damage to the infrastructure around the island, like road surface damage, big holes are in the tarmac surface at many places and it will take months to fix this. My fear is that the holes will just filled with some tar, which will be a very short term solution, since these fillers will not hold for very long. Looking back at the the history of the island, this is most likely exactly what will happen.

Yesterday saw another very sunny and dry day and was exactly what was needed to forget a bit about the recent January floods. Due to the sunshine, many roads are actually completely dry again. Some other areas still have to deal with some water on the roads and there is also still a lot of water coming down from the hills. Max temp reached 32C yesterday.

The forecast predicts a cloudier sky tomorrow with possibly a short shower or two during the day. Come Tuesday however, there's supposed to be a strong storm like wind during almost all day long with plenty of rain. Looking at the forecast, there most likely will be flash floods again, maybe a day to better stay inside! Wednesday may see less wind and rain and come Thursday the rain and wind should mostly have gone, to have slight return on Saturday. It's not looking too great but by no menas as bad as during the recent floods.

The next Green Market will be on Sunday 22nd January at Fisherman's Village at Elysia Boutique Resort and will start around 15.00 or 3pm.
As always this will be a great opportunity to buy lots of organic food, to eat on the spot or to take home but also fresh and organic produce will be on offer.

The next Green Market will be on Sunday 22nd January at Fisherman's Village

The next Green Market will be on Sunday 22nd January at Fisherman's Village at Elysia Boutique Resort at around 3pm

What is nice to see is that the Samui Green Market is proactive about NOT USING PLASTIC. 
At this market we will introduce "Trash Hero" bottles for both business owner and islander to join to save our island.
EVERYONE CAN BE A HERO! An excellent initiative and if you want to buy things, bring your own non plastic bags and the people selling are asked to get creative with bamboo, banana leaves or buy reusable, or paper!


The next Green Market will be on Sunday 22nd January at Fisherman's Village

The next Green Market will be on Sunday 22nd January at Fisherman's Village at Elysia Boutique Resort at around 3pm

A great location to get locally made and produced organic products, food and otherwise. I will be on the island and will surely make it over for a visit.
