Koh Samui, Thailand daily weather update; 23rd October, 2011

Today's weather;

The sky over Koh Samui is filled with clouds although right now the sun tries to peek through but at the same time, just a few minutes before, there was rain and thunder. Current temp at 7am is 26.1C

The forecast sees some improvement Tuesday, which should be merely a sunny day, all other day are either mixed bags with cloud and/or rain and some sunshine and other days without sunshine.

Yesterday saw thunder and rain in the morning around Samui with clouds all day long but not so much rain anymore during the remainder of the day. Max temp reached 27.8C

Clouded skies seem to be part of the daily routine almost every day now around the island

The floods keep creeping into Bangkok and taking over more and more ground in the city. The ongoing flood disaster has ravaged 175 districts as of now in 28 provinces, affecting 2.45 million people, and the death toll stood at 356 deaths with two persons missing, the National Flood Relief Centre at Bangkok's Don Mueang Airport reported yesterday.
At the same time, staff of the website have withdrawn from the Don Mueang flood relief centre amid conflicts with the government's Flood Relief Operations Command (Froc).

The floods are supposed to last for weeks, some speak of 6 weeks. Here's a comparison with the 1983 and 1985 floods. Here you can find are some good pictures of the current floods. heck out the alligator or crocodile at the doorstep of one house!

It looks like the current situation will hold on for a while and that the current floods will enter history as one of the bigger ones.
