Koh Samui, Thailand daily weather update; 10th April, 2013

Today's weather;

It's partly cloudy over Koh Samui this morning with a current temp at 7am of 27.2C

Spirit house between Chaweng and Lamai

A big spirit house or Saan Phra poom between Chaweng and Lamai, typically most cars and motorbikes will honk their horns at least three times when passing here

Yesterday was sunny and hot, what's new? Max temp reached 32.2C

The forecast for the next 7 days is very interesting and keeps changing at the moment from day to day. Today the forecast shows good weather until Saturday, come Sunday however, clouds and rain start with an huge storm moving over Samui on Monday with massive amounts of rain, wind strength, gusts and big waves. We'll see how long this will hold since typically predictions like this seem to peter out after a day or so. Very interesting though.

Hi Danny,

The forecast is flipping up and down at the moment, changing almost daily. However, in general April is a great month to visit Samui.
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.

I use Windguru
It changes a lot at the moment but it seems that a big, one day storm is coming our way, just not sure when.

Danny and Scraperka, if it is any help I came to Samui last year around the 15th of April until Late May. Although there is no guarantee that things will duplicate themselves each year, the pattern in April and May that years was largely good (much better than other months of year that I've visited before) with only the occasional day of rain in the later afternoon and overnight, rather than ruining days of beach lounging. If there were 2 days of 'so so' weather, we were then rewarded afterwards with several days of perfect blue sky weather.

I'm currently on Ko Samui again on holiday, and today has certainly been the cloudiest day that I've seen since coming here nearly 4 weeks ago. It seemed like rain was very imminent a few hours ago but has not happened yet, much to my surprise. As Camille says, it seems to change all the time.

What can appear to be encroaching clouds and rain some mornings, are so often blown away by high winds leaving perfect blue skies for the rest of the day. I also feel that there must be some ditching of rain at some stage, simply because it has been so hot. Tooooo hot, in fact. This morning was stifling and seering sun, and the rain would have been welcome infact.

In some ways we need a downpour at least for a day, to ease things.

Thanks Alex,

A good description indeed and rain will be very, very welcome!
It does keep changing the whole time, the storm predicted for Saturday is already graded down but rain should be had over the weekend nonetheless.

Today was a nice day, not so hot as the previous days, you could do something during the day time!
