Koh Samui, Thailand daily weather update; 23rd October, 2016
It's mostly cloudy this morning over Koh Samui with an occasional crack in the cloud cover for a small slice of blue to be spotted. There's also a very strong wind blowing but it's dry and expect it to remain dry today. Current temp at 7am is 27C
In a moment we're off for the day to Surat Thani and tomorrow I will continue my travels to Phuket, to assist a friend and fellow PADI Course Director in a big PADI IDC Course.
A stunning site yesterday at Sanam Luang in Bangkok, where well over a hundred and thousand people, plus a symphonic orchestra played and sang the Thai national anthem in honor of the late HM King Bhumibol Adulyadej who passed away ten days ago today. Transportation to Thailand's capitol in order to pay respect to the King is a major undertaking at the moment and hundreds of buses and minibuses are being mobilized to bring people to Bangkok and in the city itself they have taken museum buses out of the museums so they're able to deal with the masses that need transportation inside the city
Yesterday saw a very strong wind blowing all day long around Koh Samui under a cloud covered sky but it remained dry all day long and max temp reached 30C
The forecast for the next ten days will see the strong winds fizzle out by Tuesday and for a few days we may see some sunnier skies again. Around next weekend there should be plenty of rain starting to come down and maybe, just maybe this could be the monsoon season starting to knock on Koh Samui's door.
