rough weather?

as our trip to Krabi comes closer my thoughts are turning to out snorkeling and camping trip.

I've had a look at the extended forcast for the Krabi area around the time we will be there and they are looking at 15-35 knot winds and a 1-2 metre swell. along with thurnderstorms.

Can anyone tell me what that means in relation to boating and snorkeling? Will it be rough or will it be ok? is seasickness something I need to consider !

Also had to smile when the weather page had a picture of a person in trousers and a sweatshirt/jersey with a prediction of cool weather because it got down to a low of 21C !!

Cheers for any info :)

We had no rain the entire week and the sea is calm and sometimes getting rougher in the later afternoon. Long term weather forecasts are like roulette. But the weather for a week ahead will stay as it was this week.

If you are sensitive for motion sickness, better take a tablet prior to the boat trip.

oops 15-35 km/hr winds not knots per hour

Thanks klongmuang I'm not a sea going person so I wasn't sure if that was a big swell and strong winds or just a normal everyday day at sea :)

Have been watching weather forecast daily as was worried about weather for our trip in January/February. I am pleased to say that it seems fairly settled at moment with no mention of rain. Hope this continues.
