Koh Samui, Thailand weekly weather update; 5th August – 11th August 2019

Koh Samui, Thailand weekly weather update; 5th August – 11th August 2019

Good morning and welcome to the Koh Samui, Thailand weekly weather update; 5th August – 11th August 2019.
It's cloudy and the very strong wind of the last two days has passed. There's still strong wind but not storm like anymore. It's currently 30C at 10.30am and very occasionally the sun peaks through a cloud hole. 

Last week saw very strong winds around the Samui archipelago. Culminating on Friday and Saturday with almost storm like conditions. Friday afternoon and evening and Saturday morning saw some very strong wind. Earlier last week saw a few fast and furious storms pass through as well. Surprisingly, during all this time, there was not that much rain. A lot less than I expected.
Maximum temperatures reached 35C on Thursday. The minimum hit Thursday night as well with 21C.
Luckily we only had one time a power cut at our house. With this kind of weather it can easily happen that a tree or tree branch hits an electricity cable with all electrical consequences!

Plai Laem, just outside of our house, during one of the many storms last week. Dark skies, strong winds but surprisingly very little rain. You can see how the coconut tree leaves are going in one direction. Caused by the strong wind.

For next week the forecast predicts still a few days with strong wind. Specifically Thursday may rock the boat a little bit. Rain can be expected, but just like last week, not too much. Most likely short, tropical showers. Hard, short and fast.

Don't forget next weekend, on Sunday 18th August, the Lamai charity run. It's sold out by now.

Do enjoy your stay on the islands and be careful, it is box jelly fish season again. Sightings have been reported from Lamai and Maenam beaches.

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. 

You may also opt for a very special dinner experience at The Thai Experience. Behind closed doors, reservation only and a very enjoyable and well worthwhile way of spending an evening on Samui. Authentic Thai food and a great atmosphere. Can highly recommend this experience. 

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