Koh Samui, Thailand weekly weather update; 23rd October – 29th October, 2017

Koh Samui, Thailand weekly weather update; 23rd October – 29th October, 2017 


Yesterday was Sunday and time for the Koh Samui, Thailand weekly weather update; 23rd October – 29th October, 2017. Today is already Monday, late in the evening and finally I found time to update the blog with last weeks weather report!

At almost 10pm it's dark now and 27.5C and today saw plenty of sunshine in a partially cloudy sky.

In Khao Lak we saw most days a nice sunny morning with clouds moving in during the daytime and often short rain showers during the late afternoon. Current temp at 10pm here is 25C

Koh Samui, Thailand weekly weather update; 23rd October – 29th October, 2017; Inside Wat Plai Laem last week, during the late King Bhumibol Adulyadej's cremation ceremony. Paying respect by the local Samui people and residents. It was very busy and waiting time for up to eight hours was no exception.

Last week was fairly good for this time of the year, with three days being partially cloudy but with sunshine and four days with tropical showers. Maximum temperatures ranged between 32 and 33C, so very steady, despite some showers.

Koh Samui, Thailand weekly weather update; 23rd October – 29th October, 2017; In Thap Lamu, near Khao Lak, one of the Royal Thai Navy ships of the navy bass in Thap Lamu, went out to the ocean the day after the latte King's cremation to offer the burned sandalwood, offered by the local people, into the ocean. All around the country you had the opportunity to offer sandalwood in honor to the late King Bhumibol Adulyadej. 19 million people apparently did! The sandal wood was burned and all around the country this sandal wood was then a day later offered to a body of water. Near Khao Lak that was the ocean. We saw the ship just come back into port after it had completed this honorable task. With the current PADI IDC in Khao Lak we had our day of open water training dives on the same day.

The forecast for next week was very interesting. At some stage, Saturday 28th October, it looked like a massive storm would hit Koh Samui on the Thursday 2nd November. That same day, the forecasts showed that the storm would pass north of Samui. Only to drop down again a day later when Samui was threatened again. Today it looks like the power behind the storm has fizzled out and we will be spared from seriously heavy storms with accompanying rain and wind, which would have caused floods, power cuts and the likes!
The forecast are still predicting lots of rain from Wednesday through Friday and a flood or two may or will occur but it's not nearly as bad as it was originally predicted.
The monsoon is knocking at the door though and it looks like the start of November will be very wet!

Please do 'like' my Koh Samui blog Facebook page and enjoy the beaches around the island or in front of your hotel or resort and get some well deserved rest and a break. If you're done resting or need something else to do, there's plenty of things on offer on and around Koh Samui, you can go snorkeling or diving or take a dive course. You can also enjoy some of the trips I recommend, like a half day gourmet lunch and snorkeling trip at the Southern part of Koh Samui or a photography trip where you get to see the most photo genetic spots on the island or go for a drinks tasting tour if you like a tipple or two.
