Koh Samui, Thailand daily weather update; 14th October, 2016

In front of Siriraj hospital in Bangkok, yesterday evening, where HM King Bhumibol was treated for several months where he passed away yesterday, thousand of Thai people pay respect to HM King Bhumibol, after having reigned Thailand for 70 years and 126 days.
“The government will inform the National Legislative Assembly that His Majesty the King, who is now residing in his royal coffin, has already designated an Heir Apparent in accordance with the Succession Law,” junta chairman Prayuth Chan-och said.
There will be an official mourning period of one year and Crown Prince Maha Vajiralongkorn, has asked for time to mourn with the rest of the country, meaning there's currently no set date when he will be crowned as King Rama X.
In the meantime caretaker will be Prem Tinsulanonda who already was Prime Minister in 1979

Yesterday saw a nice and warm day with plenty of sunshine although there was also a thin cloud layer. Late in the evening, around 9.30pm there was some short, hard rain followed by drizzle for a while. Max temp reached 32C

The forecast for the next ten days on Koh Samui has changed, until next Tuesday it's supposed to be cloudy to partially cloudy and I expect a few sunny days with an occasional shower but come next week Wednesday the wind is supposed to pick up, with at times storm like force. Strangely enough not too much rain is predicted though during that period.

So sad to hear of the Kings passing. He will be sorely missed.
We are coming over to Koh Samui next week and I have read that there is a month of mourning in respect for the King but we are wondering what impact will this have for tourists eg will restaurants and bars and markets will they be trading as normal.
Looking forward to hearing form you and awesome work on your blog.

Hi Trudi,
Most likely restaurants, markets, shops and the like, will continue as before. Entertainment and sports event will need to be toned down or will be cancelled or postponed.

Hope this helps for now, at the moment I think you shouldn't need to worry too much.
