Koh Samui, Thailand daily weather update; 27th September, 2016

Koh Samui, Thailand daily weather update; 27th September, 2016


Today's weather;

It's cloudy over Koh Samui with a little bit of rain thrown in and a few very small blue pockets. Most likely it will remain cloudy for the remainder of the day. Current temp at 7am is 27C

On Phuket in the Kata area we also have a very clouded and grey sky with plenty of early morning rain and it looks like it may stay like this for a while today. Current temp at 7am is also 27C

Koh Samui, Thailand daily weather update; 27th September, 2016

This box jelly fish washed up on Bophud beach, between the Anantara and Zazen Resort yesterday. If you see one of these animals on a beach, don't teach them with your bare hands, the stingers from a dead box jellyfish can still shoot off their venom after around five years. Be careful when handling it and ideally burn the dead body

Yesterday saw a partially cloudy day over Koh Samui with a few bits of sunshine and it stayed dry. Max temp reached 32C

Koh Samui, Thailand daily weather update; 27th September, 2016

A life guard on a Phuket beach is holding a bottle with a Portuguese man o'war or blue bottle jelly fish. They washed up on four Northern Phuket beaches, Layan, Nai Thon, Nai Yang and Mai Khao and which were consequently closed for one week to all public. There were also washed up box jelly fish found on the same beaches. Both jelly fish are potentially deadly, hence the closure of said beaches to all public, a wise decision (read the article here).

The ten day forecast for Koh Samui predicts strong wind until Friday night with heavy clouds until Monday, after this it should clear up and we might get to enjoy a lot more sunshine. Be aware of the chance for a relatively rare tropical shower.

Koh Samui, Thailand daily weather update; 26th September, 2016


Today's weather;

On Koh Samui we have a fairly cloudy sky with a light wind but the sun is trying to peak through the cloud cover and may get the overhand at some stage, later today. I do expect it to stay dry today. Current temp at 7am is 28C

Back here on Phuket, at the Kata area, it's also partially cloudy, with a mix of light, white clouds and dark, grey clouds and a few open spots where the blue sky can be spotted. Current temp at 7am is 28.1C 

Today I will start a PADI IDC Staff instructor course, tomorrow followed by the actual PADI IDC on Phuket.

Koh Samui, Thailand daily weather update; 26th September, 2016

Some of the trails of yesterday's X Terra off road duathlon and trail running races in the Bophud and Maenam hills. It was hot and partially sunny yesterday which made it tough for the participants

Yesterday saw a partially cloudy sky over Koh Samui with the sun breaking through many times, which made for a warm and sticky day. Max temp reached 33C

Koh Samui, Thailand daily weather update; 26th September, 2016

The thru way behind beach road in Patong on Phuket, the last section before you hot a small roundabout, among others connecting to the road heading for Karon. This last section has many bars for local Thai people. Patong is my least favorite part of Phuket, too touristic, too much hassle but a great beach nonetheless. There are much nicer spots and locations around Phuket, especially if you look just that much harder

The forecast for Koh Samui over the next ten days sees strong wind popping up from Wednesday to Friday and cloudy skies until the weekend. After next weekend it might clear up and give way to sunnier skies. Be aware of a rare, tropical shower.

Koh Samui, Thailand daily weather update; 25th September, 2016

Koh Samui, Thailand daily weather update; 25th September, 2016


Today's weather;

We have a nice mixed bag on Koh Samui, with a partially cloudy sky but the sun unleashing it's warmth and/or heat! At 10.30am it's already 33C, it's looking like it's going to be a hot day today!
Also cheers out to the X Terra participants who raced today on Koh Samui!
The late update today is because I participated in the Khanom full marathon and now have time to update the blog.

Now it's off to Phuket to start a PADI IDC Staff course tomorrow and the PADI IDC on Tuesday.

Koh Samui, Thailand daily weather update; 25th September, 2016

The beach at Khanom yesterday afternoon, this morning I ran a full marathon (although the race course was one kilometer short) in 3 hours and 43 minutes, smashing my personal best with half an hour and ending third in my age group. Well chuffed with today's race results.
All the three times I stayed at Khanom, it was always at the Supar Royal beach resort, where today's start and finish line was, so very convenient this time around.

Yesterday saw a warm day around Koh Samui with a max temp of 33C but it was mostly cloudy with occasionally some rain.

The forecast for the next ten days is looking fairly good, a bit of wind until next weekend, partially cloudy with hopefully plenty of sunshine and a very rare occasional tropical shower. Enjoy!

Today's weather;

It's cloudy again this morning over Koh Samui and it looks like it will stay this way for the remainder of the day with possibly some rain at some stage. Current temp at 7am is 27C

Today I'm off to Khanom on the mainland, just around the corner of the Seatran ferry, where I participate in the Khanom marathon tomorrow morning, with a 4am start and the plan is to run it under 4 hours. A big challenge but I should be ready for it. After that I will continue tomorrow afternoon to Phuket for a new PADI IDC on Phuket.

Koh Samui, Thailand daily weather update; 24th September, 2016

Traditional Thai dancing at Tipparat school in Maenam, where our oldest daughter is a student. Yesterday two teachers retired and our daughter preciously won a price that was handed over to her today. With two very proud parents sitting in the audience.

Yesterday saw a cloudy day with a drizzle during the morning hours and some rain at some parts of the island during the day. Max temp reached 32C

The forecast predicts a light wind over the next ten days with sunny moments but mostly cloudy skies and an occasional tropical shower.

The Phra Phuttabat Chamlong Khao Hua Jook Pagoda overlooking Chaweng, the airport and Bang Rak, during a very recent sunset

Koh Samui, Thailand daily weather update; 22nd September, 2016


Today's weather;

There's a heavy cloud layer over Koh Samui this morning and the sky is not likely to show some sunshine today. There's a fair amount of wind and you may expect some showers during the afternoon. Current temp at 7am is 27C

Koh Samui, Thailand daily weather update; 22nd September, 2016

A view on the lush green jungle and trees once you go in the hills surrounding Maenam. Last weekend I helped marking the race route for the bike and trail running events of the X Terra event, to be held this coming Sunday, 25th September. For the triathlon event, the swim part unfortunately has been cancelled due to the imminent danger of box jelly fish currently at Koh Samui beaches. The rce will now be a duathlon and two trail race courses have been set out

Yesterday saw a little bit of sunshine in the morning, escaping the clouds and we had rain during the afternoon, around 3.30pm with clouds for the remainder of the day. Max temp reached 32C

The forecast didn't change that much, come Sunday the wind should have faded and the clouds mostly disappeared. Up to Saturday expect tropical showers with possibly strong rain Saturday afternoon and sunnier skies after the weekend.

Koh Samui, Thailand daily weather update; 21st September, 2016


Today's weather;

It's cloudy this morning over Koh Samui and it looks like it will stay like this today, with the addition of rain and drizzle throughout the day and a fair breeze. Current temp at 7am is 28C 

Koh Samui, Thailand daily weather update; 21st September, 2016

Death wish at Soi 1 in Maenam (the road that connects or short cuts between Maenam and Lamai). This is one of the many off road jeeps that are being used by companies that offer trips around the island during which you visit many attractions on Koh Samui. On top of their roof they also have seats, in which sometimes up to four people sit. If the truck or jeep suddenly needs to abruptly break, the people sitting on top of the drivers cabin will be catapulted straight forward, on the road or into the back of whatever is in front of them. Each year people die like this and as far as I know, to the best of my knowledge, it is prohibited to sit on top of the drivers cabin. You don't see this anymore on the main roads, but it seems that as soon as they get off the main roads, people are allowed to sit on top again. Have you seen this? What do you think of this?

Yesterday saw a cloudy to at times partially cloudy day with the sun breaking out at times. Max temp reached 33C

The forecast predicts the clouds to break up and disappear by Sunday afternoon, the wind should have had it last breath on Saturday and up to Saturday night we may see and experience some showers. From Monday onward it should clear up and sunny skies should be ours although a tropical shower may still drift by occasionally.

Koh Samui, Thailand daily weather update; 20th September, 2016


Today's weather;

It's cloudy over Koh Samui this morning with a nice breeze and I don't expect the sun to break through today, rather be prepared for some tropical showers during the afternoon. Current temp at 7.30am is 28C

Koh Samui, Thailand daily weather update; 20th September, 2016

The iconic 'Meh Guan Ihm' statue at Wat Plai Laem or Wat Laem Suwannaram from a different angle, the back of the statue. When you are on Koh Samui, I can highly recommend visiting this temple, in my humble opinion it is the best temple to visit on our island with some beautiful views and photo opportunities

Yesterday saw a another very warm day, with plenty of sunshine during the morning and a few clouds moving in during the afternoon. Max temp reached 34C

The forecast has changed slightly and for the next ten days, expect a fair breeze until Saturday, rain between Wednesday and Friday and sunny skies as of next Monday.

Koh Samui, Thailand daily weather update; 19th September, 2016


Today's weather;

It's very hazy in the sky over Koh Samui this morning, sprinkled with some clouds but the sun is trying to burn it's way through the haze and I expect it to be sunny and warm day today. There's a fair bit of wind but as strong as yesterday. Current temp at 7am is 27C

Koh Samui, Thailand daily weather update; 19th September, 2016

A view from the hills and mountains behind Maenam, with a view towards Fisherman's Village. The last two days I was marking the race course for next weekends upcoming trail and bike races as part of the X Terra event, next Sunday, 25th September. It was the first time I hit these trails and it was awesome, first of all, I now have some good trails to run on and secondly, some of the views are just stunning!

Yesterday saw a sunny and nice day around the island, cooled off by some strong wind and occasionally some clouds drifted by. Max temp reached 34C

The forecast is looking good, we should have partially cloud covered skies until Friday. By Friday the wind should have dropped pretty much completely, and the sun should come out in a fairly strong force. Between and including this Wednesday and Friday expect some rain.

Koh Samui, Thailand daily weather update; 18th September, 2016

A dramatic sunset over Big Buddha yesterday evening
