Koh Samui, Thailand daily weather update; 25th July, 2015

Today's weather;

There's a thin cloud layer hanging over Koh Samui this morning, which I expect to break up once the sun starts to heat up. The sun will have to work harder compared to yesterday, since today's cloud layer is thicker, but during the morning, the sun will  hopefully start to work it's magic. Current temp at 7am is 26C

Closing in on sunset yesterday on Koh Samui near Big Buddha

Yesterday saw mostly a sunny day with some cloud formations. It felt a lot warmer than the thermometer announced with a max temp of 32C

The forecast hasn't changed much, mostly cloudy days are predicted over the next ten days but there should also be plenty of sunshine and still a rare chance of a tropical shower.

Kila Amphur Koh Samui 2015

Today is already the first day of the Kila Amphur Koh Samui 2015. Tuesday the Anuban, the young kids aged four to seven had their day of showing off their skills and yesterday the first of three days for the 7 and older had their moments of glory!

Kila Amphur Koh Samui 2015

A rum band in Navy style uniforms, waiting and doing their hair

Our oldest two children participate each year, although I don't always have time to go and see the event, due to work commitments. By now it's about my sixth Kila Amphur that I visit. It's held all over the country but each province may have different dates when it's organized.

Kila Amphur Koh Samui 2015

Always showing the love for Thailand

Each year it's an early start for the make up to be put on, the hair to be styled and uniforms to be fitted. This year the alarm was set at 2am. By 7am we left the house just to get stuck in the yearly traffic jam but we were all ready to 'rock & roll' shortly after 8am.

Kila Amphur Koh Samui 2015

Time to call Saul, whiplash victims are visiting the Kila Amphur. Sometimes the teachers come up with some very strange clothing styles, these girls necks were covered in white neck bands, almost making it look like they were whiplash victims

Our children were in slot seven of all schools, which is still good and means an early start and almost as important, a fairly early time to go back home again, around noon.

Kila Amphur Koh Samui 2015

The Stasi (former East German secret police) was also there; A teacher, completely covered up for sun protection.

It was fun and due the unexpected sunny skies, it was hot! Plenty of schools lined up their best dresses and acts, and the acts mean the drum major shows. Our eldest daughter was in a combined 'pact' of three schools, her own Bophud school, together with the Plai Laem and Bang Rak schools.

Kila Amphur Koh Samui 2015

Really, and what is this supposed to be?

After yesterdays parade, the 'games' started. Sporting events were scheduled for yesterday afternoon, today and tomorrow, mainly consisting of athletic competitions like track running, jumping and the like.

Yesterday saw a partially cloudy start of the day but very early on the sun took over and we enjoyed very sunny and blue skies for the remainder of the day and it turned hot. Max temp reached 31C

The forecast predicts mostly cloudy skies although I would expect a bit if sun peeking through. The chances of a tropical shower seem to have diminished.

It's mostly cloudy with a few very isolated and small blue pockets or two over Koh Samui this morning. It may clear up a little bit and some sunshine may come our way but it looks like it will remain mostly cloudy. Current temp at 7am is 24.3C

Late afternoon yesterday, view over the Gulf of Thailand between Koh Samui and Koh Phangan, a nice partially clouded sky with a big, dark storm brewing in the background

Yesterday saw a wet start of the day with grey and dark clouds but during the day the cloud cover partially broke up and we had some sunshine. However, the later afternoon / early evening around 6pm brought a storm like rain shower with some very strong wind and hard rain. It continued to drizzle for a while after the storm like shower had passed. Max temp reached 30.9C

The forecast predicts mostly cloudy skies for the next ten days although I do expect sunny moments but also some tropical showers.

Koh Samui, Thailand daily weather update; 20th July, 2015

Today's weather;

There's plenty of overcast over Koh Samui this this morning with not much chance of the clouds moving away or for some sunshine later during the day. At this moment I would rather expect some early morning rain to top it off. Current temp at 7am is 23.4C

Koh Samui, Thailand daily weather update; 20th July, 2015

Fisherman's Village, opposite the Wharf, around 1pm when the rain started

Yesterday saw mostly overcast, the whole day through, the sun did not really manage to break through. Between noon and 1pm the island was struck by very heavy clouds and some very hard rain, which locally caused some serious flash flooding, like at Chaweng beach road, where at some parts the water level reached about half a meter for a short while.
It drizzled on for almost all afternoon and into the evening and the night even brought some more rain. There was a minimum of 22mm of rain yesterday and the max temp just reached 30C

The forecast predicts some rain this coming evening and night again but come Wednesday we might have the sun back for a few moments. Most likely it will be cloudy at most times of the day with a possible tropical shower but the sun may join the party as well at times.
