Koh Samui, Thailand weekly weather update; 20th March – 26th March, 2017
Today it's partially cloudy over Koh Samui and it looks like it's going to be another very warm or rather hot day. Current temp at almost 9am is 30C
Koh Samui, Thailand weekly weather update; 20th March – 26th March, 2017; Up in the Maenam hills near a waterfall, with a lovely view over the ocean towards Koh Phangan. The waterfall can be found at the very end of Soi 5
Last week it was gorgeous and really heating up as well. Most days it was sunny with a few clouds in it and some days had a few more clouds, but it was very hot all week long. Friday actually saw a light shower at various places around the island, except where I happened to be, there it was dry all day long, although I moved around a bit that day. Max temperatures ranged from 31C to a whooping 34C
Koh Samui, Thailand weekly weather update; 20th March – 26th March, 2017; Last night saw the 5th edition of the Koh Samui Midnight run, a charity event, in which I placed second in my age group of over fifties and sixth all over. The fourth time I participate and the fourth time I place second in my age group, despite the fact that I become faster each year. This year I was two and a half minutes compared to last year. The person who won my age category was however four minutes faster than me, so a fair win and he placed third all over.
This week I have received many question about the weather coming op next week(s), The forecasts are working with precipitations, which means that even if there's the slightest chance of rain or a thunderstorm that day, the icon of rain or a thunderstorm will show up. This doesn't mean at all that there will be either rain let alone a thunderstorm.
For our next week on Koh Samui, it's looking good, considering there's a real heavy rain and storm over Central Thailand (around Bangkok) and the North and North East of Thailand. The South may get some rain but nothing compared to the line North of Bangkok.
Expect some rain on Monday evening and throughout Tuesday and the rest of the week should be lovely, with a the odd chance of a shower.
The end of March and April are considered to be the hottest time of the year on Koh Samui and any rain is actually nice and will cool things down a bit. Enjoy next week and no reason to panic, there will be plenty of sunshine laying ahead of us.
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,
