Koh Samui, Thailand daily weather update; 4th January, 2011

Today's weather;

We just had a very short but hard shower on Koh Samui but immediately the first blue patches of sky in this new year appeared. Current temp at 7am is 25.3C

First blue sky patches of this year

Yesterday we had rain during the morning but very early the rain eased up around Samui and the remainder of the day was. 3.7mm yesterday compared to 100mm the day before, a nice improvement! Max temp reached 27.3C
As reported yesterday, the situation around the island is under control.

Chaweng beach yesterday, getting better now by the day but remain aware

The forecast for Samui didn't change very much, a sunny week lasy ahead and the wind should ease off come Friday.

The floods in certain parts of Southern Thailand are easing up, like Phattalung and Hat Yai but in other areas the pressure is on and road, train and air traffic is interrupted. Especially the Chumphon area and Nakhon Si Thammarat are hard struck at this moment.

The road carnage also continued and we're on day number five out of the seven dangerous days of New Year festivities. Up to this date 282 people have been killed and 2,783 injured in 2,544 traffic accidents nationwide, the The Road Safety Centre reported.

Buri Ram was still the deadliest province with 16 fatalities, while Chaiyaphum was the only accident-free province.

Compared with last year, deaths were up by one, while injuries were down by 308 and accidents down by 337, Silapachai Jarukasemrattana, deputy permanent secretary for the Transport Ministry, said yesterday.

Hi Boriane,

Late February is still far ahead, my advice is to 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.

Hi Camille,

I am supposed to be coming to Samui tomorrow! But my friends are reconsidering as they've had word of floods etc.. How is it looking? Are there floods or just a forecast of rain, we are staying until the 12th.

Thank you in advance

Hi Jcinta,

It was sunshine almost all day long yesterday and it's to continue until Sunday. After Sunday some rain may fall during the day time with the possibility of sunshine.
Samui did not have any flood problems at all.
