Koh Samui, Thailand daily weather update; 15th May, 2016
A lovely blue sky is beaming over Koh Samui this morning and it looks like another hot day is in the making. Current temp at 9am is already a steaming 33C
On Phuket on the other hand, we have a very cloudy sky over Kata and I just got back from a mini marathon run in the Kathu area, where it was also very cloudy. On my way back to Kata, there was hard rain in Patong and gradually it eased up and when I reached Kata the rain had already stopped. Flash floods are expected at various parts around Phuket island. Current temp at 9am is 27C

The PADI IE on Phuket is in full swing and yesterday my candidates passed three out of four segments with flying colors and very high scores. Later this morning I will join them on Kata beach, where they currently are conducting their Open Water dive segment of said PADI IE.

Yesterday saw once more a very warm day around Koh Samui with a max temp of 34C, the heatwave is holding on just a little bit longer.

The forecast has changed again, slightly for the better. Until next weekend we have mixed cloudy days, sometimes a bit less, some days a bit more and an occasional tropical shower is possible. Come next weekend, heavy cloud layers move in and the wind might pick up and a greater change of showers but not as heavy as was predicted yesterday.
It looks that slowly the heatwave is about to move on.
