Koh Samui, Thailand daily weather update; 16th December, 2016
Most parts of Koh Samui are dry at the moment during this early morning but our North Eastern part of the island has rain. There shouldn't be too much rain today but it should remain mostly cloudy. Current temp at 7am is 26C
On Koh Phangan we have grey clouds all over the place, from dark to light grey and it just started to rain some ten minutes ago but it also seemed to have stopped again. Current temp is 25C at 7am and we don't expect any sunshine here but hopefully we don't have all day long rain either, like yesterday.
Hin Ta and Hin Yai in Lamai yesterday, with a very dark back ground, clouds in all kind of grey to almost black shades. There's was plenty of rain around Koh Samui yesterday but not all day long. The rain wasn't hard or torrential but a nice steady downpour to a drizzle at times.
Yesterday saw a lot of rain around Koh Samui, but not all day long (in contrast to Koh Phangan where we had all day long rain), but it wasn't torrential but rather steady and sometimes just a drizzle. Max temp reached only 27C
Outside of the classroom of the current December PADI IDC on Koh Phangan at Haad Chao Phao yesterday, with the rain having a ball. All day long we had rain, not hard but almost non stop all day long, As a result we had some minor floods on some parts of the road, but because the rain wasn't hard, the floods weren't too bad. We were in the swimming pool yesterday for almost two hours as part of the PADI IDC training and it was cold!
The forecast predicts a slight increase in wind over the weekend with all day long rain, again, not torrential but steady. Come Monday it should clear up and we may see some sunshine again. The monsoon is back, but this time in a lot more reasonable way and how you can expect a monsoon to be, without the excessive and torrential rain and all it brings with it.
