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.
