Koh Samui, Thailand daily weather update; 13th January, 2017
A clear sky is emerging out of the night all over Koh Samui on Friday the 13th, with a full moon last night and it should become a nice and sunny and warm day. This will help the roads to dry up and the still flooded parts to recede. It looks like a great beach day! Current temp at 7am is 25C
Koh Samui, Thailand daily weather update; 13th January, 2017; Water pumps have been located at various parts around the island, to help the still standing water to reach drainage systems. This one is located near Fisherman's Village, on the ring road.
Yesterday was a bit of strange day, listening to various comments from around the island. Here in Plai Laem, we had a very sunny morning with some dark clouds surrounding us during the afternoon but ending with more sunshine. On the contrast, in Fisherman's Village and Maenam they had plenty of rain during the morning which caused plenty of flash floods in that part of the island.
The two times I went there, early morning and later afternoon, everything looked just fine, luckily I missed all the rain parts! Max temp reached 29C
The forecast for the next seven days didn't change that much, until Sunday it should be nice and sunny, with maybe an isolated shower on Sunday. As of Monday however, the rain may be back, combined with strong wind on Monday, but the rain should not be as torrential and over the top as we just had during the recent January floods, but more long the lines of a normal monsoon rain. The interesting part will be how the drainage systems will be able to handle the rain, since they're filled to the brim, if it's not torrential, they should be able to handle the rain fairly well. It will be interesting.
