Koh Samui, Thailand daily weather update; 11th October, 2011

Today's weather;

Bangkok's skies are grey and cloudy at one side of the city but a big blue sky is moving in and pushing the clouds away. I would still expect some more rain again today though. Current temp at 7am is 25.6C

We are leaving back to Samui today, although we plan on staying overnight at Surat Thani and getting back home tomorrow. This will be just in time to avoid the floods that are about to hit Bangkok, the peak tide period from tomorrow through Friday could be declared a holiday.
The floods could cripple the Thai economy, among others a big Toyota and Honda car plants in Ayutthaya are being flooded, causing massive damages and the new government may be hurt over it's lethargy dealing with the current problems.

Samui was nice with a current temp at 7am of 26.3C and a max temp yesterday of 32.6C

Yesterday saw clouded skies all day long around Bangkok with occasional showers. Not heavy showers but wet enough! Max temp reached 30.5C

The Bangkok governor yesterday announced the formation of a flood-prevention "war room" in a bid to put up "a special fight" to protect the capital against the triple threat of rainstorms, water runoff from upriver, and high tides from the Gulf of Thailand.

Wat een bekend stukje van Bangkok.
Wij zitten altijd in de buurt van het Nana station.
In december slaan we Bangkok over, heb het wel even gezien en ik denk dat we de kids meer plezier doen met het strand.
Veel plezier nog!!

Hi Camille,
I am Liana from Singapore. Was googling for weather forcast in Samui and stumbled upon your website.
Will be heading there on the last wkend of October. Wondering if we will get a chance to at least enjoy the sun for a day or two. Keep me updated with your visit to Samui. I forgot all about the monsoon season. :(
Would love to read more. It will be my first time in Thailand.
Thanks,
Liana

Hi Liana,

Good to hear from you. The end of October could be anything really, hopefully it will still be good but it's at the doorstep of the rainy season.

Please have a look at my archives, half way down the page on my Samui info and weather blog, left hand side, they go back a few years. Open a month that you’re interested in and check one of the of the last posts of each month, starting with ‘Goodbye to…………’ this post will tell you the weather conditions for that month.
You can also check each individual post for that month if you wish to.

Hope this helps for now, please keep following my updates!

Dear Camille,
I would like to apologise first to bother you, but I wanted fist hand info. My sister is in Koh Panghan now and we heaven't heard from her six days now. Can you tell me are there also floods? Is it risky to get to airport? Is internet working? Thank you for your answers in advance and good luck!

Hi Tanja,

Koh Phangan does not have any floods at all right now and didn’t have any recently. The access to Samui airport is open and has not been interrupted nor is it likely to be interrupted soon and all internet is working as far as I know. I’m sorry but can’t probably be of any more or better help with regards to your sister.
Hope this helps for now!
