Koh Samui, Thailand daily weather update; 22nd June, 2016
It's fairly cloudy with a nice breeze and there are also some blue spots in the sky over Koh Samui this morning and it should remain cloudy and dry for the remainder of the day, pending on how much the sun is able to heat up. In contrast to the prediction, we may also end up with a fairly sunny day. Current temp at 7am is 28C
A very popular pastime on Koh Samui, collecting cockles. This can only be done at certain times of the year, pending on the tides. During these periods, one can sometimes collect in the morning or sometimes in the evening, pending the water height. Recently it has been good for cockle collecting! My wife alone got a few dozen kilos during recent weeks. The cockles are either being sold or eaten at home. This picture is taken near Big Buddha, one of the very popular places around the island for collecting
Yesterday it started out very cloudy with rain in the air and a bit of drizzle came down but nothing too bad. Around noon the sun broke out and slowly started to evaporate the clouds over Koh Samui and it became rather warm again. Max temp reached 33C
The forecast for the next ten days shows that we should have plenty of cloud cover with an occasional sunny break but on the other hand thre's also an option for some drizzle or a tropical shower. This is more like your average June weather, compared to the very sunny and hot first half of this month.
