Koh Samui, Thailand daily weather update; 15th October, 2016
It's partially cloudy around Koh Samui with some bigger and smaller blue patches in the sky and there's a fair bit of wind but it should stay dry. Current temp at 8am is 29C
The late HM King Bhumibol Adulyadej visited Koh Samui back in 1962 or 2505 according to the Thai calendar. Yesterday I found a whole set of pictures from his visit online, from which I knew only one or two pictures.
Yesterday saw a cloudy but dry day with a fair amount of wind. Although it stayed dry in our part of the island, other parts had some rain during the afternoon or evening. Max temp reached 32C
Yesterday thousands of people came out to pay respect to his late HM King Bhumibol Adulyadej when his body was transported from Siriraj hospital to the Grand Palace in Bangkok. The streets were packed with grieving Thai people, all dressed in black or white clothes.
Mourning is going to last for a one year period and all 'entertainment' events for the next month have been cancelled or postponed throughout the country
The forecast for the next ten days around Koh Samui and it's surrounding islands has just changed slightly. It should stay mostly cloudy until next weekend, with the wind picking up as of Tuesday afternoon, accompanied by an occasional tropical shower. Next weekend should see a very strong wind blowing around the island but the cloud cover should be easing up.
