Koh Samui, Thailand daily weather update; 30th October, 2016
It's raining over Koh Samui this morning and there's supposed to be lots more of rain during the rest of the day. Today is likely to be a typical monsoon day with rain all day long. Current temp at 7am is 25C
A view over Koh Samui from up in the mountains. Great nature to be found there with spectacular views
At Kata on Phuket we have heavy cloud cover and I wouldn't be surprised if at some stage today we will have rain again. Current temp at 7am is 26.1C
The current October PADI IDC on Phuket has reached it's half way mark here and we're in the thickst of it! Going strong and keeping at it!
Yesterday the flooding and aftermath was a lot worse in Patong and Phuket Town on Phuket, than I initially thought. The night before last night, at 4am it was total mayhem after torrential rains for hours on an end and there were massive floods around Patong, especially the Bangla Road area with water run off rom th surrounding mountains. When I made my way from Kata to Patong yesterday morning, all roads were mud flooded and there were a few minor landslides along the way as well. It was absolute mayhem and more rain is predicted for the next couple of days
Yesterday saw thunderstorms and rain around Koh Samui with plenty of rain although not nearly as bad as compared to Phuket yesterday. Max temp reached 28C
Yesterday the Grand Palace in Bangkok was opened to mourners to pay respect and say farewell to the late King Bhumibol Adulyadej. Last night there was also rain and thunder above Bangkok which resulted in this beautiful picture of the Grand Palace by Charlinee Thirasupa
The forecast predicts plenty and hard rain today and plenty for tomorrow as well but not as hard as compared to today. The clouds may ease up for a few days although tropical showers are still likely and towards next weekend more rain is expected. It seems that the monsoon is about to start.
