Koh Samui, Thailand daily weather update; 24th May, 2016
It's cloudy, it's wind and the rain is ready to hit the ground all around Koh Samui this morning and it most likely wil stay this way with possibly a few storm like wind gusts thrown in for good measure later during the day. Current temp at 7am is 27C
Plai Laem early this morning in front of our house
Yesterday saw a mixed bag of weather types passing the scenery. We had an early morning shower shortly after 7am, followed by partially cloudy skies with plenty of sunshine and it was actualy warm, a lot warmer then I ever expected it to be. By 1.30am, we had a storm like wind gust followed by rain pass by and shortly after this, around 2.30am we had a power cut which lasted for ten hours, until 00.30am. It was mostly dry and the wind dropped again afte the storm like wind gust. Max temp still reached 34C due to the monring heat and sunshine.
The forecast chanfed a little bit, the four day stretch of stormy wind gusts has been repalced by stormy wind gusts just for today. A little bit of rain is expected today and more tomorrow after which there should be a lul in rain downpour but the wind remains until 31st May with some rain showers. The first of June may see a drop in wind and rain only to pick up again on the second.
The soup is never eaten as hot as when it's served it seems. There's still plenty of wind to come but the storm like conditions seem to have mostly gone.
Smaller boat traffic will most likely be stopped for a couple of days but I see no problem for the bigger car ferries.
