Weather in May?

I know that nobody can predict what the weather will be like with 100% accuracy, but was wondering if anyone had any thoughts on how the weather is like in May. I have traveled to a few other islands during the month of May and experienced a lot of overcast days with no sun. Was hoping that St Croix had sunny skies during the month of May. I am looking to be there the 17th through the 24th.

As you said, no one can predict Caribbean weather. May is usually a beautiful month here.

Another good source of St Croix weather is here, www.stcroixtourism.com/st-croix-weather.htm

May has more rainfall than average. That being said, it is unlikely that there will be days of rain. The showers are just longer and a little more frequent than other months. Sept., Oct. and Nov also get more rain thaan average. But again, rarely will you have days and days of rain.
