Koh Samui, Thailand daily weather update; 4th August, 2016
It's grey and very cloudy over Koh Samui this morning and I would expect some rain today, although not too much. Current temp at 7am is 28C
On Phuket it's not much different, all of Thailand suffers being on the outskirts of typhoon Nida, that hangs over the general Hong Kong area. Right now it's dry but it may well rain later today here. Current temp at 7am is 28.4C
Today the whole current July/August PADI IDC on Phuket will be on the boat to the nearby Raya islands for the open water dives of said PADI IDC. This is the last part of the course and tomorrow we should have a day off before the PADI IE starts this coming Saturday.
The Chinese style Guanyin Temple in Phang Ka, the Southern part of Koh Samui. A great place to visit in one of the beautiful parts of the island, where Samui still looks like many years ago
Yesterday saw a cloudy and windy day around Koh Samui with occasionally some showers. Max temp reached 31C
The entrance to Wat Kitti Sangkaram in Kata on Phuket, where during the early hours of each week day it's busy because parents drop their children off for school. As like with many temples in Thailand, this temple also houses a school.
The forecast doesn't look too good, we're about to say goodbye to the Nida typhoon and a new storm weather pattern is showing up and may reach Samui's shores come next Wednesday. It may be slightly less cloudy but the wind pretty much stays , picking up in strength next Thursday, into the weekend and there may be showers all along. Not the best start to a Samui August!
