Koh Samui, Thailand daily weather update; 20th October, 2011

Today's weather;

The sky over Samui shows various degrees of grey this morning and it's drizzling. No blue sky bits to be seen. Current temp at 7am is 24.2C

The forecast is still looking good with not too much rain and various degrees of cloud cover, let's see how that pans out!

The situation in Bangkok is at a stale mate it seems. Lack of leadership by the government is more widely being discussed each day. Eastern Bangkok has been sacrificed and it's till not clear how much damage the city will have to face.
As one article concludes; Saving Bangkok from inundation is now the foremost challenge Prime Minister Yingluck Shinawatra faces. It is time she demonstrated leadership and acted decisively. There is no more room for error.

Yesterday morning turned wet very quickly around Samui and plenty of rain came down for a good hour or so. During the afternoon the sky cleared up again and the sun came out in full glory. During the night we had some more rain again. Max temp reached 29C

Hello, i came across your blog on the net and seems like you're the best person to speak to re visting Samui.

I'm thinking of coming over the Xmas and New Year period.
However, I'm not sure about the weather given you're coming out of rainy season.

I've heard mixed reports with a few people saying Xmas/ New year is not the best time to visit to Samui and one is better off going to the Phuket/ Andaman side.

Can you please advise me here?

I've been to Samui once before and absoluetly loved it. I want to come back but the timing is not great I guess.

Thanking you in advance for your help.

Hi Jignesh,

Good to hear from. For whatever reason, your name looks familiar but I don't know why!

Anyway, to get back to the weather, usually Xmas and NY are actually good periods to visit Samui, the rainy season should stop mid December.

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.
