Koh Samui, Thailand daily weather update; 12th December, 2016

Today's weather;

It's mostly cloudy over Koh Samui this morning but there are some small blue holes in the cloud cover and the sun works hard to get through. It's dry though and last night had no rain. The situation on the island is each day getting more back to 'normal'. Current temp at 7am is a cool 25C

Today is a compensation day for 'Constitution Day' which was celebrated last Saturday. This means that all banks, schools and governments buildings and the like will be closed today. A 'bank holiday' as the English would call it.

On Koh Phangan it's very similar to Koh Samui, a mostly cloudy sky with a few blue breaks or holes in it. Yesterday morning we had rain but the afternoon turned nice again with a bleak sun. Current temp at 7am is 25C

A lovely drone shot of Haad Chao Phao on Koh Phangan, where I currently am teach the PADI IDC for December 2016 on Koh Phangan. This picture is exactly from one year ago, when Thailands best known travel blogger Richard Barrow visited Koh Phangan.

The forecast is looking good, all that hard rain seems now to really have disappeared. Do expect rain showers though, but not strong and most likely not too long. Next weekend the wind may pick up a bit and there may be some more rain, like a good all day long rain shower. We will wait and see how this pans out though, hopefully it will weaken before the next weekend hits us.
This more like you can expect during the monsoon, without the massive amounts of torrential rain we had during the the first December week and it's accompanying floods.

I wish i researched more into the weather in Thailand before booking my vacation. Thought that december was a dry period all over Thailand and the more i look into in now i see that December arn't one of the sunny months on Koh Samui. Arriving on the island the 16th and going home the 1st. Was hoping for a warm vaccation in the sun, now i just got a lump in my stomache.

Hi Jennifer,
Yes indeed, research would have helped! However, the last couple of days were really nice, with little rain and even some sunshine.
Between the 16th and 1st you can expect exactly that, some days some rain and other days some sunshine.

Hope that you will enjoy your stay on the island! It's really not that bad, it will be warm regardless of the weather!
