Koh Samui, Thailand daily weather update; 2nd August, 2016
There's a very strong wind blowing over Koh Samui this morning but the sky is partially clouded with some blue parts in it. Expect some cloudy skies later today but in the best possible scenario, it remains like this today. Current temp at 7am is 28C
On Phuket we have a very strong wind, at midnight I woke up from the ferocity of the wind or storm that was going on at the time being. It's wet with moments of rain and drizzle and some dry spells as well but the sky is very dark and grey. Current temp at 7am is 27.4C
A warning sign you about the helmet law on Koh Samui and in Thailand, at the police box near the Bophud traffic lights. One of the many laws on Koh Samui that is only used when it suits the men in brown. Helmets are now required for both the rider and the passnger(s) on the bike, but the police only checks occasionally, all other days of the month nobody seems to care on Koh Samui whether you use a helmet or not. Helmet use by motorbike riders seems to be a lot more on the mainland compared to Koh Samui
Yesterday saw a nice and partially cloudy day over Koh Samui with a very strong wind and some sunshine at times. Max temp reached 33C
One of the entrance gates at Wat Kitti Sanghkaram in Kata on Phuket, which I pass each day on my way to the Kata Big Rock training facilities of PADI CDC center 'Dive Asia'.
The forecast for the next ten days predicts a lot of wind and thunderstorms with rain from today until Friday, when the storms are petering out. The weekend and next week should be very sunny but come Wednesday a new storm seems to be coming Samui's way. You may expect an occasional tropical shower after the weekend.
