Weather for next weekend trip


I am taking my wife to St. Martin for her birthday next weekend. Neither of us have ever been to the Caribbean before and I understand that this is considered the rainy season. Taking a look at the weather forecast shows "Rain, high 86" day to day to day between now and next weekend.

So my question is, what is the rain like? Does it rain at the same time every day for a certain length (like some places in Mexico) or is it an all day kind of rain?

Just trying to get an idea of what to expect.

There is always a chance of brief rain showers (20 min) in the summer but the last few days have been nearly perfect. It is hot and humid but also sunny. Every once in a while a large front comes through and we get rain for a few days in a row but that is rare.

St. Martin gets more rain than some other islands because the clouds are forced up by the mountains and it rains.

Thanks, that helps. I was hoping it wasn't an all day type thing!!
