Koh Samui, Thailand daily weather update; 2nd November, 2011

Today's weather;

The sky over Samui is looking promising for another warm day, a bit more clouds than yesterday but still plenty of blue spots. Current temp at 7am is 28.3C

The forecast for the next 7 days is looking good, with hardly any rain at all predicted.

Yesterday was a gorgeous day around Koh Samui with plenty of sunshine and no rain witnessed. Max temp reached 30.8C

Chaweng beach yesterday, high tide and very quiet

In Bangkok the situation remains uncertain, torrents are now advancing downtown,

Mixed signals are still being delivered by the authorities with a prime sample here; Bangkok Governor Sukhumbhand Paribatra has given himself wide-ranging control over flood operations in the city and will send council workers backed by police to repair the controversial Khlong Sam Wa sluice gate. MR Sukhumbhand's dramatic move last night is in defiance of Prime Minister Yingluck Shinawatra's order for the BMA to widen the sluice gate to one metre. She took the action after nearby residents destroyed part of the sluice gate under the eye of police to speed up the drainage of their communities.

The cabinet is also showing it's true colors with respect to freedom of press and the Wall Street Journal sees Thailand slipping behind on an International and economical level.

Here's an interesting view from an English paper published in Japan.

Out of the 384 people killed by the floods, about 50 have been electrocuted, mainly by tripping over hidden cables.

With the predicted increases in frequency and severity of storms and higher sea levels resulting from global warming, a more destructive flood will happen more sooner than later.
The central issue is: what to do between now and then, to reduce the level of destruction?

Afraid of floods yourself and need some good ideas on how to keep your car dry, look here.
