Koh Samui, Thailand daily weather update; 12th January, 2017
We have the prelude of a blue sky over Koh Samui this morning and it's nice for a change to see a blue-ish sky shaping up. It's supposed to be partially cloudy today with most likely plenty of sunshine again. The roads are drying up, like the surface is dry but there are also still plenty of place where the water is still on the roads, partly run off water from the mountains. Current temp at 7am is 25C
Koh Samui, Thailand daily weather update; 12th January, 2017; Blue skies yesterday at Fisherman's Village and all around the island. What a relief!
Yesterday saw a lovely day around Koh Samui, from early in the morning through to later afternoon we had a partially cloudy sky with planet of sunshine all day long. Roads were drying up and water is receding everywhere. There's plenty of damage done this time around but now it's time to start fixing it again. Max temp reached 29C
Koh Samui, Thailand daily weather update; 12th January, 2017; There are still plenty of signs and proof of the devastating power and impact the January floods had. This is the entrance to Bophud temple, closed off due to a massive puddle directly at the entrance. Many road parts have been damaged, road surface has partly gone and many holes can be found all the roads around the island, This will take ea few months to fix all this and hopefully not by just pouring some asphalt into the holes, since that will not be a very long lasting solution.
The forecast for the next seven days is looking good until the weekend. Partially cloudy skies and no rain expected but instead some sunny skies for a change. Time to recover a bit from the recent floods.
After the weekend some rain is expected and predicted, especially Tuesday may see some harder wind and some harder rain. In general this is however a more 'normal' monsoon kind of rain and not anything like we recently experienced. It will be interesting however to see how the drainage systems around the island will handle a new set of rain, considering that every drainage system is filled to the brim with rain water.
Stay tuned and enjoy the sunshine for a few days.
