Koh Samui, Thailand daily weather update; 16th October, 2016
It's a very nice day around Koh Samui, a slightly hazy sky with plenty of blue in it and not too many clouds with a nice breeze. I expect to remain dry today. Current temp at 10am is already 32C
A very late update today since I started with a half marathon distance training run, 1:57'24.4 over 21.41km or a 5'28 pace, just in case you're interested (or not) and than after I took a shower it was straight off to Fisherman's Wharf for a breakfast goodbye meeting with one of the Samui runners, who is leaving back to Russia for six to nine months.
Today should also have seen the 3rd Mad Hatters run which is postponed and new dates are still to be announced and the Full Moon Marathon on Koh Phangan, which has been cancelled, just like today's Full Moon Party. This should have been the first time that I would have run two races on one day, but it's not to be, for the time being.
These are just a few of the cancelled or postponed events, due to the one month mourning period, announced in Thailand.
The late HM King Bhumibol Adulyadej on Koh Samui back in 1962 or 2505, visiting local monks. This is the only visit the late King made to Koh Samui, that I know of. Recently a set of pictures was posted on Facebook and they fit perfectly in the current mourning period for the late King
Yesterday saw a nice, partially sunny and partially cloudy day with a good breeze and a max temp of 33C and it stayed dry around the island. The drought is not getting better!
The beach at Fisherman's Village in Bophud this morning, Nice and sunny with a very calm ocean
The forecast for Koh Samui's next ten days keeps changing slightly at the moment. Some afternoon rain is expected tomorrow and Tuesday and from Wednesday to next weekend a very strong wind is due, possibly with storm like conditions at times and light rain just before and during the weekend.
