Koh Samui, Thailand daily weather update; 19th June, 2015

Today's weather;

It's cloudy over Koh Samui this morning, with a variety of clear white clouds to dark grey clouds but there are also blue spots in the sky. Current temp at 7am is 26.8C

Koh Samui, Thailand daily weather update; 19th June, 2015

One of the unexpected encounters you can have on Koh Samui's roads, a water buffalo! This one I encountered in Ban Bang Khao near the beach

Yesterday saw a cloudy day all day long, although the sun peeked through the cloud cover a few times before noon. It stayed dry in our North Eastern corner of the island but other parts of Koh Samui may have experienced some rain. Max temp reached 30.6C

The forecast looks worse as of this morning, with even stronger wind next week between Tuesday and Friday. Come next weekend the wind should disappear but there's always the chance of encountering a tropical shower.

Hello Camille,

I'm Sanja.

Can you let me know, during this cloudy weather, wind etc in Jun - how is the time for tourists during that time? Like, are they still available to have at least few hours of swimming even if it's cloudy most of the days, as it's still warm around 30 degrees Celsius. The question I'm trying to ask is: if there is wind and rain, is this still ok time to be on Koh Samui as a tourists, if your aim is to spend a lot of time on the beach, swim and enjoy the ocean. Also, is water still or are there many waves?

I also suggest that from time to time, besides weather conditions, maybe you can share some info about the water, is it steady, are there waves etc, how is it for swimming as this is what Koh Samui visitors are usually interested in (since it's a tourist place). Just a suggestion for your nice blog :)

Regards and thank you, Sanja.

Hi Sanja,

Thanks for dropping in! Right now, this time of the year the wind tend to comes in from the West side, the Nathon side. This means that the Chaweng and Lamai area, the major tourist areas on the island, should have very flat seas, in general!
Twice a year the wind changes, but that happens usually around April and October/November.
In other words, you should be fine for swimming. Sunbathing over the next ten days might not be that easy, since it may be very cloudy.

The Lamai and Chaweng beaches and most other beaches on the island will have color coded flags on their beaches which indicate if it's safe or not to swim. Green means safe and should come as no surprise that red means not safe.

Hope that helps for now and that you will have good time whilst visiting Samui.
