Koh Samui, Thailand daily weather update; 24th December, 2016

Today's weather;

It's lovely this morning with a very blue sky and just a few isolated clouds in it all around Koh Samui and a crispy morning with cool air, perfect for a very early morning run! The remainder of the day should be nice and sunny, enjoy! Current temp at 8am is 26C

At Haad Yao on Koh Phangan we also have a very nice and blue sky and that's where I just completed my early morning run. Current temp at 8am is 25C

All PADI specialty instructor training has been completed and an update will appear later in within a few hours I will be on the ferry back home to Koh Samui.

Koh Samui, Thailand daily weather update; 24th December, 2016

A sunnier Koh Samui is emerging again after a pretty harsh monsoon period with a few serious flooding problems earlier this month. This doesn't mean the monsoon is completely over yet, but we're heading in a much drier and sunnier direction, little by little and very slowly! This picture is from mid December, showing that we also had a few nice and sunny days during the monsoon period.

Yesterday saw a wet and rainy morning followed by a sunny and dry afternoon, for the third day in a row, Max temp reached 30C

Resting place of LST 713 of the Thai Royal Navy at Thong Sala on Koh Phangan, near the pier and harbor. The warship was given to the Thai government in 1957 by the United States Government under the Military Assistance Program. She went on to play a vital role in operations conducted by the Royal Thai Navy during the Vietnam War, particularly between the years of 1967 - 1972. She was eventually retired from active service on 5th June 2008 and eventually brought to Koh Phangan on 21st January in 2011. It is now used as housing of the the Royal Rama IX Memorial Museum

The forecast for the next seven days is looking good with plenty of partially clouded skies and thus also sunny skies ahead of us. Wednesday may see some rain but come Friday 29th December, the wind may be picking up with storm like conditions on the 30th and 31st and plenty of rain. Let's hope that this changes soon enough and the current nice weather patch continues into the new year.
