17th November, 2008

Today's weather;

We see another lovely, blue sky over Samui this morning. There are clouds scattered all over the place but mainly it's blue! Current temp at 7 am is 26.7C.

Yesterday was a great day, blue skies all day long, no rain and hardly any wind at all. Max temp reached 30.5C.

The Thai Meteorological Department had this warning for Tropical storm Noul;

Warning"Tropical Storm Noul" No. 3 (407/2551) Time Issued : November 17, 2008
At 5.30 a.m. today, Tropical Storm “Noul” in the middle South China Seas was centered about 550 km east of Hojimin City or lat 11.0 °N, long 111.9 °E , with sustained winds of 65 km/hr. It is moving westwards with a speed of 18 km/hr. The storm is expected to move inshore to lower Vietnam during 17-18 November. The eastern portion of the Northeast and the Easter of Thailand experiences more rain while the prevailing northeast monsoon over Thailand Gulf will strengthen with wave above 2 meters during 18-21 November. All ships should proceed with caution during this period.

Usually these tropical storms never reach Samui or wind down before they can have any impact.

Hi First,

Facebook is a social netwrok, you can find a link towards the bottom of my blog. You sign up and can stay in touch with your freinds, it supports Thai language as well and many Thai people (many students) use it.
Give it a try, Facebook dot com.

The weather is going 'south' again after tomorrow.

Hi Camille,
Still worried about the weather... If there are thunderstorms during the day, is it typical to have a sunny morning and nice clear weather during noon - then pours in the evening or late afternoon? So maybe it's not raining the entire day if the monsoon is "on". Or is it often constant rain without interruptions?
Thanks for your reports ;)

Hi Henri,

During November, if it rains, it can rain a few days on an end. We just ahd a very, unusual, nice stretch, but it looks liek the coming days are going to be very wet again.

We just had the first rain since a few days right now!
