Koh Samui, Thailand daily weather update; 22nd December, 2016
It's dry and mostly cloudy over Koh Samui this morning with a few breaks in the cloud cover and I expect it to break up a bit more and it could well turn into a fairly nice and dry day with a bit of sunshine. Current temp at 7am is 26C

Water run off at the walking street bridge in Chaweng. Still plenty of run off from hills and other kinds of water that need be taken care of. Everything is back to normal though and these are the last reminders of the recent floods Koh Samui had to endure.
At Haad Yao on Koh Phangan we also have a mostly cloudy sky but it seems we have more blue spots in the sky and here we also have a nice day in the making. Current temp at 7am is 25C

Yesterday saw a very wet morning with plenty of showers but during the afternoon the sun came back out of hiding again and we had a nice and lovely afternoon around Koh Samui and Koh Phangan. Max temp reached 28C
We encountered this baby whale shark at Sail Rock yesterday. It was about 2.5 meters long and seemed to enjoy the company of the divers and the boats and it stuck around for the whole dive day and a bit more, since divers who arrived there after we left also saw it
The forecast for the next seven days is looking good, a slight increase and possibly some rain tomorrow but after that partially clouded skies and no rain predicted until shortly before new year a few showers are expected. A lot can change weather wise in a positive way during this time frame, but this is looking good! Enjoy a sunny holiday season!
