Koh Samui, Thailand daily weather update; 21st October, 2016
It's partially cloudy this morning over Koh Samui this morning with plenty of smaller blue spots. There's still a fairly strong wind blowing and although it may get fairly sunny today, during the afternoon or evening it looks like there may be more rain again. Current temp at 7am is 27C
HM King Bhumibol in a speedboat on his way to Koh Samui in 1962, the only time he visited our island, as far as am aware of. His various children visited Koh Samui on various occasions. The eldest daughter (formerly HRH) Princess Ubolratana Rajakanya was in the Chaweng Swensens about ten years or more back and his son Crown Prince Maha Vajiralongkorn was here various times. The other two daughters may have visited Koh Samui, but I'm not aware of it.
Yesterday saw a cloudy day all day long with at times clouds, heavy with rain. The rain didn't start however until around 4.30pm when there was about half an hour of hard rain and some drizzle for a while afterwards. Max temp reached 32C
The forecast for the next ten days remains stable and is looking good. Over the weekend heavy clouds are expected with possibly a storm tomorrow, on Saturday and some rain. Come Wednesday, the clouds, wind and rain should have gone and it may get warm, nice and sunny for a few days. The monsoon season still seems to be relatively far away and so far this October has been rather nice.
