Koh Samui, Thailand daily weather update; 22nd October, 2016
It's heavily clouded this morning around Koh Samui and there's a very hard wind blowing, partially with a storm like strength. After my early morning run, I was partially covered in sand, blown up by the wind. Rain is very likely later today and the current temp at 7am is 27C
One of the many 'Rua Chak Phra' vehicles on the road, this time in Bang Rak. All the temples around the island bring out their 'floating boats' and drive them around the various parts of the island. It's also happening on the mainland and it's an annual event.
This festival celebrates the official end of the annual three-month Buddhist Rains retreat (Phansa). The Chak Phra Festival literally means the procession of hauling the Buddha images.
Yesterday saw a cloudy day and although it remained dry in our parts of the woods, there was rain around other parts of the island. Max temp reached 31C
The forecast didn't change much for the next ten days. Very strong wind until Tuesday with storm like wind gusts today. From Wednesday onward the wind, the clouds and most of the rain should have gone.
