Welcome to the original Koh Samui info and weather blog with lots of information on things to do and see around tropical island destination Koh Samui in Thailand including weekly weather updates, brought to you by long term resident Camille Lemmens since February 2007.
It's cloudy and grey this morning all over Koh Samui, in total contrast to yesterday but it's dry and might stay dry, with only a possibility of a shower during the morning. Current temp at 7am is 25C
An update; around 8.30am the cloud cover broke open and we now can enjoy a partially cloudy sky with plenty of sunshine.
Just before the Tan Rua waterfall in Maenam there are currently also minor waterfalls flowing, due the recent amounts of rain. A nice track to walk and enjoy nature, at the very end of Soi 5
Yesterday saw a lovely day all around Koh Samui with blue skies all day long and nice and warm temperatures. Max temp reached 33C
The forecast for the next seven days is not looking that great anymore, up until Thursday it's partially cloudy with an occasional shower but from the 30th onward the wind and rain is supposed to pick up with storm like conditions and non stop rain on the 31st December and 1st January. Not an ideal weather condition for a New Years Eve and at this moment I wonder how fireworks will be possible to be set off, due to the expected wet circumstances.
This weather depression is hitting pretty much all of Southern Thailand, including the Andaman Ocean side with Phuket having incredible amounts of rain predicted at midnight on New Years Eve at the moment, enough to flood all of Patong for a few hours.
