25th August, 2009

Today's weather;

Plenty of overcast this morning but the strong wind that prevailed yesterday seems to have finished, for the time being at last. Current temp at 7 am is 26.2C.

Yesterday and today all speedboats have been cancelled due to very strong wind. The TMD or Thai Meteorological Department has some 'heavy rainfalls and strong wind waves' warning up, including for Surat Thani province, of which province Koh Samui is part of. There are similar weather patterns right now over pretty much all of South East Asia.

Yesterday saw overcast and some rain until noon, after that it cleared up nicely and the sun came out. There were some heavy wind bursts during the afternoon though. Max temp reached 30.8C.

Hi Ryan,

The storms should indeed be over by then. It seems to be calming down again with a peak on Saturday and after that it all looks good again, right now.

Hope this helps.
