Koh Samui, Thailand daily weather update; 14th December, 2016
A nice blue sky is shaping up over Koh Samui with some clouds in it. A total change of how the weather was a week ago during the recent floods. It should remain sunny to partially sunny and no rain is expected today. This is almost as unusual for a December as the recent floods were, but enjoy the good weather patch nonetheless! Current temp at 7am is 27C
On Koh Phangan we're enjoying a very similar blue sky in the making, just as on Koh Samui and we expect a nice and warm and dry day overhere. This will be good news for the Full Moon Party party revelleres tonight! Current temp at 7am is 26C
Yesterday we visited my favorite restaurant on the island, an Italian restaurant in Chaloklam by the name of 'Caffe della Mocca'.
View towards Big Buddha from the Seatran pier. The water is still very murky but the weather is looking good again! The floods have now mostly gone around the island and although there's still water coming down from the mountains, the run off is starting to slow down as well. Little by little.
Yesterday saw a nice day around Koh Samui with mostly blue skies and some small clouds in it and no rain, not a single drop. It felt good having the sun warming up your body again. Max temp reached 31C
A view from the resort where we use the pool during the current December PADI IDC on Koh Phangan. It's located on top of a hill between Haad Yao and Haad Salad and some spectacular views over the ocean. Also on Koh Phangan the floods and puddles on the roads are almost gone and the run off water from the mountans is slowing down.
The island is currently packed with people, tonight is the Full Moon Party
The forecast is looking very good. No major rain periods are predicted for the next ten days but occasionally you may expect a short shower. This is nothing unusual for this time of the year since it's the monsoon season after all. The sun should be out and about as well, so enjoy this, this is rather unusual for this time of the year, it's the monsoon season after all! Come Saturday, the wind may pick up but Sunday the wind should slow down again.
Enjoy this mild December weather, you may even be able to enjoy the beaches around Koh Samui, just be careful and watch the red warning flags on the most popular beaches in the North (Maenam and Bophud) and East side of the island (Chawng and Lamai), if red flags are up, do stay out of the water!
