Should we worry about the rain???

We leave in 3 days and couldn't be more excited, but I have to say that I'm nervous about the possibility of rain! It shows that there are chances for thunderstorms by the end of the week and I don't want our trip to be ruined by rain. What is Jamaica like when it rains? Are they quick showers or does it rain constantly throughout the day? I've been worrying about the weather conditions since I booked our trip considering it is the rainy season...

been to places tons of times during hurricane season where the weather reports called for rain every day and usually that means ...if anything ...a few minutes of rain and only MAYBE... then the HOT HOT sun comes out out and 20 minutes later you would never know there was even clouds.... hopefully tho no hurricane does show up because although it would be excitement...it would be something to not have to deal with if you could avoid it

LIke Oxforddawg said, you can do nothing to control the weather, so don't worry about it. Go and have a good time. If it does rain, guarantee you'll find ways to still have fun.

Forecasting weather for Jamaica is nearly impossible 12 hours out and absolutely impossible several days out. What is forecasted as rain might be a 20 shower in late afternoon.

Looking at the rain systems currently in the Caribbean, nothing seems important enough to generate island-wide rain.

And so what if it does rain -- time for a 'nap.'
