Koh Samui, Thailand daily weather update; 8th June, 2012
Koh Samui woke up under a mostly blue sky with some clouds in that sky. It's sunny again, just as predicted! Current temp at 7am is 25.5C
Later this afternoon we will be on our way to Phuket where I will run a half marathon this coming Sunday as part of the 7th Laguna Phuket International marathon. Back on Koh Samui this Monday!
The sky over Plai Laem this morning
Koh Phangan how we saw it from Samui the last couple of days, covered in clouds
Yesterday saw a nice morning around our island with a tiny bit of drizzle during the afternoon. Max temp reached 30.5C
Samui held out very well during last week, there were some storms and a fair amount of rain but no flash flood happened and the island coped well. This in sharp contrast with Koh Lanta and Kph Phi Phi and touristy parts of Phuket, mainly the Patong area.
Thai TV shows plenty of flooded areas and through friends on Facebook I saw plenty of pictures of flood problems in the mentioned areas, the two main English news papers in Thailand however don't report a sentence on any potential flood problems in Southern Thailand this morning.
The forecast is looking nice, a lot less wind, still a few waves here and there but in general I expect sunny weather for next week.
