Koh Samui, Thailand daily weather update; 22nd September, 2015

Today's weather;

It's cloudy this morning over Koh Samui and hazy on top of that. It looks like it may stay cloudy today. Current temp at 7am is 26.7C

According to Wikipedia, info about the haze;  
"The 2015 Southeast Asian haze is part of the Southeast Asian haze-series (2005-2015), a longterm crisis better source needed] which happens roughly every 2 years in summer and fall. The 2015 event is affecting several countries in Southeast Asia, including Brunei, Indonesia (especially the islands of Sumatra and Kalimantan), Malaysia, Singapore and Southern Thailand. It is caused by forest fires due to the combination of illegal slash-and-burn practices and annual dry season in the Indonesian provinces of Riau, Jambi, South Sumatra, West Kalimantan, Central Kalimantan and South Kalimantan."

Old style gas station in Baan Namuang

Yesterday saw a cloudless day but it was very hazy all day long and warm! See the explanation about the haze above. Max temp reached 33C

The forecast changed drastically overnight. Cloudy days are back and wind and rain can be expected from Thursday evening onward until Monday night. It looked so promising yesterday but it's gone all to smithereens again.
