Koh Samui, Thailand daily weather update; 16th January, 2017
It's dark and grey again in the sky over Koh Samui and at 4am this morning we had a thunder storm passing over with hard rain. At the moment it's dry but a few light showers are expected today. Current temp at 7am is a cool 24C
Koh Samui, Thailand daily weather update; 16th January, 2017; At last the road in Soi 8 in Plai Laem has collapsed. It was a matter of time when it should happen. During the December rain and floods, the earth underneath part of the road was washed away and during the recent January floods, it got hollowed out even more. Yesterday, during a dry and partially clouded day, the road finally collapsed and I'm afraid it will take a very long time before this will be fixed. Luckily nobody got injured when the road did collapse.
Yesterday saw a partially clouded day with plenty of sunshine peeking through the cloud cover and it stayed dry. Max temp reached 32C
The forecast for the next seven days is not looking that great. The next two days should be the worst days to come during this period, with strong, at times storm like wind and plenty of rain. Not as torrential as early January but plenty enough. Friday may be the only dry-ish day and over the weekend some light rain is expected. It will be interesting to see how the drainage systems will be able to handle this rain, since everything is filled to the brim. Although most roads had dried up, this will be a game changer again.
