T.S. Stan is currently rolling over the Yucatan now with

reported 40+ mph winds. We'll know in a few short

hours whether Stan inflicted any serious damage though

right now it seems unlikely.

As to November's first 2 weeks, it's the tail end of the

Tropical Storm season and generally a good weather

window in the region. Keep in mind, as with most things

weather related, nothing's for certain. If your

looking for a 100% sure thing, it's not available.

Well said, Dangers....

Hurricane season officially runs through the end of November...however, the odds are pretty slim that there'll be a hurricane during the month. Still, you can never be totally sure.

Stan won't do much damage at all, other than perhaps a few downed trees and some flooding. Otherwise, things will be pretty much operating normally by Monday or Tuesday at the latest.

My fiance and I are headed to Cancun 10/8 - 10/15. This will be my first trip to Cancun. I know it's hurricaine season but does Cancun get a fair amount of sun during the day on average at this time of the season. Or should I expect all day cloudy days?

There will be PLENTY of sunshine...you will come back with a killer tan, don't worry about that one bit...There are clouds at times, but very rarely is it overcast for more than a day or so at a time. This would be one of those exceptions during Stan.

Fear not, enjoy your trip!

It seems that Weatherdood may be playing down the bad weather a bit. I have been here 2 days now and it's been nothing but rain, flooding and sometimes strong winds. We stepped off the bus late tonight and the water was halfway to our knees. As we walked back to our hotel the water was 4-6 inches in most places. All the weather sites say it is going to be thunderstorming for like the next 10 days. I'm going to be super disappointed if I don't see the sun once on my Cancun vacation!!!

zzaa, thanks for the concern my dear, but we are all just wet, nothing more dangerous than that. It's the most water I've seen in a while, my house is leaking in spots I didn't know couild leak (out of the middle of the wall?) and a few streets are flooded, but overall, no damage that I can see.

I feel like I jinxed things last night when I said the rain had stopped! So, though it is raining less right now, I am not counting my chickens before they hatch.

Any other locals get trapped in the floods downtown yesterday? That was wild. I swear there were cars floating on parts of Av. Tulum and Av. Xcaret. I went out for some pozole and couldn't get back home. I was riding in the back of someone's car and water came into the car almost up to the top of the seats. The car finally stalled on Tulum and we had to push it to higher ground. I've never seen a sewer system on any of Cancun's streets. I wonder why?

Ooohh....not good having a wall leak! I'm having a deja vu of our situation not so long ago. We had a huge rain storm and saw our "wall oozing". We now have a big area of dry wall missing in our son's room, along with some carpet pad issues. The leak came from the roof flashing and soaked the wall.

Hoping your wall survives...
