Koh Samui, Thailand daily weather update; 30th December, 2016
It's grey and cloudy this morning over Koh Samui but it's dry and it should remain dry, according to the forecast, with actually the sun possibly popping out during the afternoon. There's a very strong wind though. Current temp at 7am is 27C
One of the resident pancake or roti sellers at Big Buddha. These pancake sellers can be found all over the island and actually all over the country, catering to both locals and tourists. The pancakes are very popular with both groups. Prices should be between 30 and 40.-THB per pancake, pending on what version you order. In the less touristic areas your options will be more limited and just a few variations, if any, are available
Yesterday saw a dry and partially sunny day around Koh Samui and we also saw an increase in wind. Max temp reached 31C
The forecast keeps improving slightly, each day we get nearer to that predicted depression. It's windy all right, a fierce wind is blowing and should stay here until a couple of days after new year, but the expected amount of rain is a lot less each day. It should rain on and off over the next five days but not anywhere near the originally predicted torrential rains that were predicted just a few days ago. New Years Eve at midnight might actually be dry now although the Thai government has prohibited any fireworks out of respect for the mourning of King Bhumibol.
