Weather in Samui today (quote) "plenty of blue with the sun currently beaming down but there are loads of big and (some) dark clouds looming everywhere". I could write exactly the same for Phuket! Some sun, some dark clouds and plenty of heat!

Finally... I was reminded today of a great song which has a "weather related lyric". You don't need a weatherman to know which way the wind blows...

And then by the power of YouTube, the Weird Al version...
