Koh Samui, Thailand daily weather update; 3rd November, 2011

Today's weather;

Koh Samui's sky is unchanged this morning. A blue sky with fluffy clouds! Check out the picture below for a reference. Current temp at 7am is 25.5C

The forecast changed drastically, no more nice calm weather, from 7th November onward storms are predicted. Wonder if the rainy season is knocking at the door.

Yesterday saw a sunny and warm day with an occasional mini shower around Samui, we had one whilst the sun shining! Max temp reached 31.3C

The situation in Bangkok is in a stalemate, flood waters are creeping along major roads in northern Bangkok heading towards the inner city, with the lead influx on Phaholyothin Road reaching Major Ratchayothin mall complex. In the eastern run-off, the deluge is closing on Fashion Island on Ram Inthra Road.

Yesterday the public was warned that 15 green mamba snakes had escaped from a flooded building in Nonthaburi's Pak Kret district on Tuesday night. It takes 23 days to get anti venom to Thailand, providing you would survive a bite. Makes you wonder who can have 15 of these animals on his or her premises and not even having an anti venom available. Oh right, 'This is Thailand'!

In the meantime the government is dissmissing any reports of health risks because of stale water but who believes them still at this moment?

The opposition has submitted an interpolation yesterday, to question the prime minister on measures to deal with the flooding situation, chief opposition whip Jurin Laksanavisith said on Tuesday.

The severe flooding coupled with foreign governments' advisories against travel to Thailand has begun to take its toll on passenger traffic through Suvarnabhumi airport. We're travelling with a party of 6 to Pattaya later today passing through the airport, maybe that will boost figures a bit.

One more time, if you're planning to visit Koh Samui or any other part of Thailand, please have a look at respectively my Samui hotel recommendation blog and my Thailand hotel recommendations blog with first hand knowledge of many local hotels and by booking on this site, by using the Agoda or Hotels Combined buttons you help me indirectly maintaining my blog. There are also my beloved beer buttons around the blog and a donation button can be found on the top left of this blog, in case you find my blog helpful. Thanks!

Hey Camille

I was reading your blog and wanted to ask how dry is the Xmas / New Year season in Samui?

I’ve read it rains in November but what’s the probability it dry over the festive period?
Just looking to be extra careful before I book as its very expensive and don’t want to get stuck with rain every day.


I would really appreciate your help and advice.


Thanks
JP

Hi Jignesh,

usually the Christmas and NYE period is nice on Samui. The rainy season has finished and the weather should be enjoyable again although you may experience some showers.

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.
