Weather 15th on

We are due to arrive soon. Weather looks like precipitation 50-75% daily. Is this typical to have some showers each day?

Thanks

try www.weathercarib.com

Locally produced with plenty of links to satellite, radar and NWS discussions.

many of the generic weather sites use data relating to Puerto Rico, which is very close by but has quite a different weather pattern due to the size and height of the island.

www.windguru.com is another simple but fairly accurate site.

We rarely have any 50-75% POP predictions here that are not obvious on satellite with a large frontal system already formed to our east.

www.wunderground.com

Use zip code 00801

i just went to that site and they have only one 8 hr. period with more than 30% POP in the next 10 days.

Best to pack your thermal underwear and souwesters as the island coconut telegraph is hinting that the storm which recently hit the NE mainland looks as though it might do a massive turnaround and pop down here on the 15th, bringing with it a load of snow and ice followed by sleet and rain. Such a pain when that happens ...

Thanks for the sarcasm. Just asking about rain.

Travel mom check the FAQ section on the right of the STT TA site. Rain is forecast everyday. and most days it does briefly rain somewhere on the island. Don't worry about it

No sarcasm there at all - just some good hearted levity! But I'll repeat the "good advice" for the millionth time and tell you that you have nothing to worry about. The weather forecast regularly predicts anywhere from 20-60% chance of rain which translates to mean that at some point of the day or night there is a 20-60% chance that some part of the island will see a quick shower. Usually it can be raining on one side of the road and not the other. It's unusual for the whole island to have a rainy day but, if that happens, it's rare that the rain will continue into a second day and particularly not at this time of year as that's more a likely occurrence during late hurricane season when fronts pass over. Looking at weather forecasts will frustrate you no end and is a total waste of time. Enjoy your vacation and pack the sunscreen!
