Koh Samui, Thailand daily weather update; 17th December, 2016

Koh Samui, Thailand daily weather update; 17th December, 2016

Today's weather;

There's a lull in the constant rain we pretty much had all night long around Koh Samui and the non stop rain caused some parts of the island to flood again. It's dark and grey outside and the wind picked up and is blowing fairly hard. Today should remain mostly wet with more rain to come, not as torrential as during the recent, early December flood but still a steady rain almost all day long. Current temp at 7am is 24C

On Koh Phangan it's not looking much better, fairly strong wind in a grey sky with moments of no rain but we had almost all night long rain, with more to come today. Current temp at 7am is around 24C

After a night of nonstop rain, floods have returned and some roads are under water again, around 6am this morning. Once the rain stops, the floods should recede quickly however. This looks like the market at Chaweng, between Laem Din and the ring road

Yesterday saw rain during the morning around Koh Samui and Koh Phangan, followed by surprisingly nice afternoon with sunshine and a lovely sunset. Once it got dark tough, it didn't last long before the rain arrived and it rained almost all night long, not hard, but steady. Max temp reached 31C

Koh Samui, Thailand daily weather update; 17th December, 2016

Sunset on Koh Phangan yesterday afternoon, after we had a lovely and sunny afternoon. Once it turned dark, it started to rain and almost all night long we had a steady stream of rain and the wind picked up 

The forecast predicts plenty of rain today with some stronger than usual wind, for tomorrow there should be more rain during the morning but during the afternoon it should get dry again with the rest of the week partial cloud cover with possibly some sunshine thrown in at times.
The monsoon isn't over yet but slowly an end is getting in sight. At this moment Christmas may be cloudy but dry, although that can change over the course of next week, so keep an eye out on the daily updates here.

Hi Camille. I arrives yesterday for a 2 week holiday due to leave to go to Phuket on Thursday but due to weather I am thinking about leaving tomorrow already as only here for a short period of time. Would you say trust the weather forecast as it's accurate? Any advice at all please?

Thank you

If you have the option to leave for Phuket sooner, do it. Weather there is nice.
