Koh Samui, Thailand daily weather update; 24th October, 2016
It's cloudy over Koh Samui with still a fair bit of wind and it looks like it will stay mostly cloudy today, with the sun possibly breaking through occasionally but I expect it to stay dry. Current temp at 8am is 28C
This morning I'm in Surat Thani town, en route to Phuket. We had dinner with a whole bunch of old school friends of my wife and early morning I drove my family down to the ferry, back to Koh Samui. In an hour or so I will hit the road again and drive down to Phuket.
It's grey and wet in Surat Thani with a current temp at 8am of 25C
That's us yesterday, waiting at the Seatran port in Nathon, to board a ferry heading for Donsak on the mainland. Sailing was smooth and there were no waves to speak of.
Yesterday saw a partially cloudy day over Koh Samui with the win slowing down a bit and it stayed dry all day long. Max temp reached 33C
The Saan Lak Mueang or city pillar in Surat Thani town. Lak mueang (หลักเมือง) are city pillars found in most cities of Thailand. Usually housed in a shrine (ศาลหลักเมือง) which is also believed to house Chao Pho Lak Mueang (เจ้าพ่อหลักเมือง), the city spirit deity. They are held in high esteem by their citizens.
The forecast for Koh Samui and the next ten days is looking good, especially this time of the year. The wind should be dropping each day no and by tomorrow afternoon it should pretty much have gone. Most days are expected to be cloudy to partially cloudy with some tropical showers towards next weekend. The monsoon that looked like it had arrived, seems to be still relatively far away.
