Koh Samui, Thailand weekly weather update; 18th December –24th December, 2017

Koh Samui, Thailand weekly weather update; 18th December –24th December, 2017 


It's Sunday morning, the long run is done and dusted and it's time for the Koh Samui, Thailand weekly weather update; 18th December –24th December, 2017.  
It's partially cloudy with plenty of nice and sunny moments and the current temperature at almost 10am is a nice and cool 28.4C

This is a great time of the year for running and cycling. The temperatures drop and the mornings are nice and cool, around 25 to 26C. As long as it stays dry!

Koh Samui, Thailand weekly weather update; 18th December –24th December, 2017; Along Plai Laem beach, at the most Southern point, you can find this 'sala' which is used for local people as a place of worship. Statues of an elderly couple are placed within the 'sala'.

Last week was surprisingly nice and sunny. There was a very strong wind blowing all week long, which seems to only have been completely dissolved by today. That wind was cold though! Many local Thai people were dressed up as if 'winter had come' to Koh Samui. 
The wind had so much strength that most or all daily boat trips were cancelled. So no diving and/or snorkel trips were going out.
The ferries to Koh Phangan and Koh Tao were still going although the Lomprayah boats had to use Nathon as arrival and departure location.

Temperatures ranged between 27 and 31C during last week.

The predicted tropical storm went on a South bound route and hit Malaysia over this weekend.

Koh Samui, Thailand weekly weather update; 18th December –24th December, 2017; A boat being build at the Plai Laem beach. Just in front of somebody's house it seems.

The forecast for next week is not looking that good. Strong wind is expected come Tuesday accompanied by some rain. 
A fair wind is still expected on all other remaining days of the year with rain showers to go along with the wind.

Stay safe and dry! See you next week again!

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. 

Contact me for more detailed information on any of the options mentioned.

Hi,
I'm going Thailand 13th january and cant decide to go koh samui or Phuket. What do you think would be the best if I want sun? The forecasts looks pretty same.

Thanks for a good blog

In general January is nice, it's a bit early to give an indication how the weather will be in a bit over two weeks time.
Please have a look at my archives, half way down the page on my Samui info and weather blog, right hand side, they go back a few years. Open a month that you’re interested in and check one of the last posts of each month, starting with ‘Goodbye to…………’ this post will tell you the weather conditions for that month.
You can also check each individual post for that month if you wish to.

Hello!

I am looking to going to Ko Samui on January 5th but the weather network shows rain every day....

How reliable is that data?? Are we coming in the middle of a monsoon?!?

Thank you!

Hi Thomas,
Please my comment above. January should not have rain every day but at this moment it's a bit too far ahead to make any predictions.
Most of the forecast sites work with percentages. Meaning, if there's a 20 or 30% chance of rain that day, the whole day is predicted as a rainy day.
One forecast shows a partially cloudy sky come 4th January.
