The weather for October 2010, from the Klong Prao Meteorological Office, i.e. outside my window. Normally the first half of the month is much wetter and cloudier than the end of the month. Last year was the opposite. This year it has just been very wet for the first couple of weeks, with a few more days of heavy rain forecast. (This isn’t limited to Koh Chang, it’s been raining heavily across Thailand recently.) But entering the last 10 days of the month, the wind has switched direction and cooler, hazier weather is here – indication the dry season is on the way. And the final few days of the month saw very strong northerly winds and cold temperatures – 20C before you factor in wind chill but very little rain – just a few light showers.
