Happy New Year from the Phuket Weather Blog!
Just a quick update... Weather in Phuket - hot and sunny with hardly any wind. It was a bit windy around Christmas but that has gone now. We did have a rather grey New Years Day, but New Years Eve was perfect. Our family (11 people) headed to Cape Panwa, a restaurant called The Beach Bar for New Years dinner and party. Good food, all the family, football on the beach, and fireworks too!
HAPPY NEW YEAR!

The photo above was taken on New Years Eve. A "Kom Fai" lantern drifts up into the sky, the moon just about peeping out from the clouds. It did not rain, but the clouds did come in, and January 1st was rather cloudy all day. We took a drive over the Sarasin Bridge to Phang Nga province, and had prebooked lunch at Samchong Seafood restaurant. Weather was not the best, so we decided against a boat ride out to Koh Panyee and James Bond Island. Just enjoyed lunch in a quiet local environment ...
I was working yesterday, had a day off today (3rd January) and the weather today was HOT HOT HOT, enough to give me some nice red skin after working around our house. Yesterday started very wet actually, but the afternoon was nice. No major rain here, but in case anyone is reading the news, there is some flooding on the east coast of Thailand, especially in Chumphon and Surat Thani provinces. Nothing *too* serious .. but my wife's family live in Chumphon and their drive home from Phuket yesterday took 11 hours. Normally would take about 5 or 6 hours. Here in Phuket, no rain, hot, sunny. And long may it continue! Perfect weather. See you soon!
