Koh Samui, Thailand daily weather update; 6th November, 2010

Today's weather;

Samui is going back to normal, this morning it was dry and the sky looked bright although there was no sunshine but also no rain. Water is receding all over the island but there's a lot of damage amongst other to the road surface, especially in front of Chaweng post office on the ring road.
Electricity is back on at my house pretty much non stop now but some parts still had some power cuts. Tomorrow should see a nice and fairly dry day with some sunshine! Currently Wednesday looks like a rough day again with some strong wind Current temp at 7am is 25C

Koh Lanta sees a light cloud cover today but I wouldn't be surprised if we see some sunshine later in the day! Current temp at 7am is 25.5C
Today is the last day of the IDC here!

Yesterday saw Samui starting on the recovery path, there was some rain but nothing like the past couple of days. I hope all my friends are ok! Everything starts or is open again, ferries from/to the mainland are back on schedule as well. Max temp reached 28.7C

Koh Lanta saw some clouded skies all day long yesterday with an occasional drizzle but no outright straight rain. Max temp reached 27.8C

Hi Camille

Thanks very much for your weather updates in Ko Samui! I've a family trip (with a baby) planned on 16 Nov to Ko Samui and have been paying a lot of attention to the weather and flooding situation over there. Been asking the hotel staff but they aren't saying anything... until I read your blog - very useful and informative!

I know this may sound like a silly question... but is fresh water still readily available because of the flood? Is there any problem with sanitation?

Yes, I know... I seem a little over the top and paranoid now... but I'm just kind of worried 'cos I'm travelling with a toddler - makes things more complicated.

Hope to hear from you. Thanks again!

Hi Melissa,

Fresh water is not a problem at all and sanitation should also be no problem.
Right now the ferries to the mainland are up and running again and bring all necessary supplies.

Usually we only have one such a bad patch of weather during each rainy season so it is very unlikely that there will be another, similar weather patch.

Hope this helps for now.
