Koh Samui, Thailand daily weather update; 7th June, 2012

Today's weather;

The sky over Koh Samui has overcast but it is rather bright and the sun even tried to peek through earlier on. It's a bright sky and not as dark as yesterday with a lot less wind. It still may rain later today but right now it 'feels dry'. Current temp at 7am is 26.5C

A surprising sunset yesterday at Big Buddha

Yesterday saw a real good storm pass over the Koh Samui during the morning hours, after noon things started to clear up though and it remained more or less dry during the afternoon and the wind slowed down with a surprising peek of the sun just before it turned dark. The night was dry as well. Max temp reached 26.7C

The situation on Koh Samui is completely under control, besides the rather unusual rain and hard wind. There are no flash floods. Other parts in the South of Thailand have less good luck, between Ranong and Cumphon roads are blocked and a Mum and her daughter were killed in Trang when a tree fell on their house.

The forecast predicts more rain and heavy wind today but as of tomorrow things should turn for the better and more sunny and dry days should be in the cards again. Some of the strong wind may stick around though for a few more days, although not as strong as we experience currently.

Hi Camille,

In one of those articles, Surat Thani is listed as an at risk area. Do you think we're at risk for flooding here on Samui?

If the mainland is flooded or experiences floods, that doesn't mean Samui will have the same problem since we're not connected to the main land, Samui is an island.

Right now the forecast predicts better weather conditions starting from tomorrow.

Hi Camille, I am due to visit Koh Samui and Koh Phanang on June 16 for 10 days. What sort of weather should I expect. I hear it is raining every day but is that all day rain or the usual downpour for an hour or so and then good weather generally? A bit worried as spending my 10 year anniversary and hoping weather will be ok?

Hi Bhadresh,

Right now there's very unusual rain and strong wind for June, by tomorrow this should subside and get back to 'normal'.

For June that means mainly sunny but with the chance of a tropical shower, short but fierce.

For a better idea on the usual June weather pattern, please have a look at my archives, half way down the page on my Samui info and weather blog, right hand side, they go back a few years. Open a month that you’re interested in and check one 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.
