Whats the deal with current weather questions ??

Patong ,Karon and Surin beaches all have live web cams. There you can check current weather .....real time. This may save 20% of the questions asked on this site.don't you think ?

Yeah its there but still travelers prefer reviews from people living there or from peoples who knows the weather condition of that place.

I've checked the camera two days in a row and it looks the exactly the same. Doubt it is working.

As soon as the weather turns the forum becomes inundated with weather questions, it's always the same every year, at the moment it's the Phuket forum then in November/December it's the Koh Samui forum, I think people just hope somewill who lives there will have some inside info on the upcoming weather because people that ask are usually travelling a week or so later that's why the live webcams don't interest them.

Just to add I think we're all guilty of this as everyone wants good weather when they go on holiday after you've been planning and looking forward to the holiday for months so when you read about bad weather you hope it will pass before you arrive.

What does it matter if people ask questions about weather or any other matter. Last time I looked this is a forum for everybody not just the select few that think they have the right to personal attack forum members for their questions. Lighten up
