Koh Samui, Thailand daily weather update; 4th January, 2014

Today's weather;

Koh Samui has a nice blue sky to show for this morning with just a few clouds in it. Current temp at 7am is 23.6C

On Koh Lanta, where I will start a PADI IDC later today, it's fairly cloudy with a current temp of 25C

Yesterday started out really nice with clear blue skies, Closer to Koh Lanta a few clouds showed up and near the Lanta ferry there was even a surprise shower for a few minutes, the first rain since about 3 weeks here. Max temp on Samui reached 30C

The ride over between the two islands was relaxed and easy, it wasn't as busy as I expected it to be. However, on the Highway 44, I had 12 motorbikes, a tricycle motorbike, 3 cars and two trucks come against traffic on the hard shoulder. Driving in Thailand is always interesting!

This leads to the last update on the 'seven dangerous days'; A total of 366 people were killed and 3,345 injured in 3,174 road accidents during the "seven dangerous days" of the New Year holiday period, the Road Safety Centre announced yesterday. Nakhon Ratchasima had the highest number of fatalities with 21, followed by Surat Thani with 16 and Udon Thani with 14 cases from December 27 to January 2.

On January 2, the last of the seven days, about 32 people died and 304 people were injured in 283 road accidents.

Drunk driving and speeding were the main causes for the accidents at 33 per cent and 29 per cent respectively, he said. Most accidents - 79 per cent - involved motorcycles, while 8 per cent involved pickup trucks.

The forecast shows mostly nice and sunny skies over Samui for the next 7 days, except maybe some rain come Friday.
