Flooding in Chaweng eysterday, after a full, almost non-stop day of rain. This part of Chaweng is notorious for flooding, since the water doesn't have a way to escape, because there's no access to the beach, everything is blocked by walls. There's a new drainage system in place, so these flash floods usually don't last longer than an hour to a few hours at most nowadays, in contrast to several days up to a week or more before that drainage system was in place

At Kata on Phuket it's very cloudy and very grey with also rain coming down this early in the morning. Most people thought the rainy season was gone after a couple of sunny days about a week ago but it seems it has come back with a vengeance and (flash) floods! Current temp at 7am is 25C

The main road leading in and out of Phuket, the Thepkassatri road had some flash flooding yesterday after some hard rain

Yesterday saw a lot of rain around Koh Samui almost all day long which caused flash floods and a few minor lasndslides on the road between Maenam and Nathon, just before the hill. Max temp reached just 28C
Excellent running weather conditions and temperatures!

There was also rain in Bangkok yesterday and this picture shows a woman trying to protect an image of the late King Bhumibol Adulyadej from getting wet, in front of the Grand Palace

The forecast for the next ten days shows some supposed easing up on the rain and cloud cover around Koh Samui but there will still be showers, although they're not supposed to last all day long. Welcome to November and the rainy or monsoon season on our island.

Hi Camille

I have been reading your blog for a couple of months now. We are coming over to Koh Samui for a holiday. We land this Thursday (3rd November)

The weather in Samui is looking to be a little rainy! Do you think we will still see lovely sunny weather? We are in Samui til 17th November and hoping we are going to get a decent winter tan!

Thanks

Hi Rebecca,
November in general sees the rainy season arrive on Koh Samui and it looks like it's early this year.
The next couple of days might see less cloud cover and hopefully some sunshine but be prepared for some showers as well.

Hi Camille,
I have a similar question! I'm getting married in Samui in December we arrive on the 7th is the weather usually ok then?

Hi Emma,

Very sorry to day that typical early December is not that great on Koh Samui. Usually it's not until around mid December that the weather gets better.

My advice is to please have a look at my archives, half way down the page on my Samui info and weather blog, right hand side, they go back a few years. Open a month that you’re interested in and check one of the last posts of each month, starting with ‘Goodbye to…………’ this post will tell you the weather conditions for that month.
You can also check each individual post for that month if you wish to.
