Koh Samui, Thailand daily weather update; 9th January, 2017
Once more, it's very grey, cloudy and wet this morning over Koh Samui. Hard rain went on in intervals all night and part of this morning all around the island, but at last the wind is supposed to drop soon and the rain to seriously slow down or stop soon during this morning, with some rain being expected again during the late afternoon, a kind of last call.
A lot of flooded areas where the water receded yesterday may have flooded again but I do expect them to drain again as well today. Current temp at 7am is 26C
'Only' 38mm of rain is expected during the next 24 hours around Koh Samui. A big difference compared to last week where the amount of rain sometimes easily exceeded 100mm per day.
Currently Krabi, Koh Lipe and Koh Lanta (where I will be later this month) are seriously hit with rain, storm and floods whilst Phuket is having loads of rain as well. Slowly the weather depression is shifting from the Southern East coast to the West coast.
Koh Samui, Thailand daily weather update; 9th January, 2017; The small island in front is Koh Som, located in the Bang Rak bay and in the background, covered in clouds is Koh Phangan, which has been seriously affected by the recent floods as well. This picture was taken yesterday afternoon during a dry spell
Yesterday saw a good day around the island, rain varied from a drizzle to light rain or no rain at times. This immediately had an affect on a lot of flooded areas, where the water receded and all around the island the roads were passable again. Last nights hard rain may have flooded a few areas again though. Max temp reached 27C
The forecast is looking real good. Today should see the last bits of rain, during the late afternoon and during the day the wind should start fading. Tomorrow is currently predicted to be cloudy but dry and as of Wednesday the clouds should break up and possibly we can expect some sunshine. Wouldn't that be nice for a change.
The remainder of the week and the weekend shows partial cloud cover but no rain anymore. It's time we can feel that sunshine on our skin again!
