Koh Samui, Thailand daily weather update; 15th January, 2017
It's a bit hazy today and the sun is struggling to break through this morning around Koh Samui. The cloud cover may get more clouded during the remainder of the day. Current temp at 9.30am is 28C, still fairly cool and enjoyable.
Koh Samui, Thailand daily weather update; 15th January, 2017; Airplanes are completely on schedule again and are flying in over Big Buddha all the time again and at Samui airport it's according to schedule again. Things are back to 'normal' again around the island, however, there's been a lot of damage to the infrastructure around the island, like road surface damage, big holes are in the tarmac surface at many places and it will take months to fix this. My fear is that the holes will just filled with some tar, which will be a very short term solution, since these fillers will not hold for very long. Looking back at the the history of the island, this is most likely exactly what will happen.
Yesterday saw another very sunny and dry day and was exactly what was needed to forget a bit about the recent January floods. Due to the sunshine, many roads are actually completely dry again. Some other areas still have to deal with some water on the roads and there is also still a lot of water coming down from the hills. Max temp reached 32C yesterday.
The forecast predicts a cloudier sky tomorrow with possibly a short shower or two during the day. Come Tuesday however, there's supposed to be a strong storm like wind during almost all day long with plenty of rain. Looking at the forecast, there most likely will be flash floods again, maybe a day to better stay inside! Wednesday may see less wind and rain and come Thursday the rain and wind should mostly have gone, to have slight return on Saturday. It's not looking too great but by no menas as bad as during the recent floods.
