Koh Samui, Thailand daily weather update; 6th December, 2016
It's dry at the moment again around Koh Samui, a welcoming situation after the torrential rain from the previous days and the floods it caused. Today should still see some rain but hopefully the worst is now behind us. Current temp at 8am is 26C
This morning I drove from Phuket to Khao Lak where I just arrived under a cloudy sky but with some blue patches in it and it's dry. Current temp at 8am is 26C
Later today I should be on the road again on my way back to Koh Samui.
Chaweng lake was flooding over and the buildings along the lake promenade were partly flooded. The lake did cause a few problems for people that live nearby
Yesterday saw still a lot of rain around Koh Samui but many raods cleared up and the water was able to flow away, however other parts still had water but the situation didn't improve nor got worse. Max temp reached 28C
Downtown Chaweng, there's always an upside!
At the bottom of the hill in Bang Po leading up to Nathon, some serious flooding occurred here and the road was closed off on the 3rd December. Now heavy repair works are in progress and the road should be open again
The Rua Tor 813, always worth a visit when visiting Khao Lak
The forecast still predicts a fair amount of rain today but things are about to turn around and the torrential rain should be over by now. Rain can still be expected in the coming days but not as much as came down during the previous few days and not all day long anymore. This means that the water in the flooded areas should start to recede and within a day or two I expect the situation to be back to normal again.
