Koh Samui, Thailand daily weather update; 15th December, 2016
It's cloudy but dry this morning around Koh Samui but the roads are wet due to the rain we had last night around 4am. There may be another short shower this morning but it should clear up eventually with possibly some sunshine later today. Current temp at 7am is 26C
The roads are fine, most or all floods are gone and the drainage system can handle showers like last night.
On Koh Phangan we also have cloud cover but with a few isolated blue spots. Current temp at 7am is 25C
The current PADI IDC on Koh Phangan has reached the halfway mark here and we're making good progress.

Chaweng beach yesterday. Surprisingly calm and clear water for this of the year and no undertows or rip tides which are also common during this time of the year
Yesterday saw a lovely sunny and warm day around Koh Samui with plenty of sunshine and blue skies. There was rain last night around 4am but other than that, it's unusually nice for this time of the year. Max temp reached 31C

Haad Rin beach on Koh Phangan, location of the world famous Full Moon Party or FMP. Last night it was showtime again and the island is full of revelers. Usually they stay for no more than two or three more days before they move on to other locations and the island goes relatively quiet again
The forecast is looking good, a lot better than usually can be expected this time of the year, when the monsoon should be in full swing. We had our extreme floods earlier this month, now we have extreme good weather, so enjoy! This coming weekend may see some stronger wind and rain, possibly all day long or most of the day but not as torrential like we recently had but after the weekend it might really clear up and a very sunny and warm lead up to Christmas is likely!
