Default Weather question

I am little concerned about the extended forecast next week for the caribbean, it shows 40 to 50 % chances of rain each day of our stops in St. Maartin, St Thomas, & Nassau. I assume since we will be in the tropics that this is normal & rain in those parts is simply an interruption & not an all day event. Any insight would be greatly helpful.

We live in Florida, Andy, and frequently these '% chance of rain' forecasts can mean anything from scattered showers to thunderstorms to day-long rain. But this is not the 'rainy season' in the tropics and I wouldn't expect anything more than occasional shower during December. But it never hurts to bring along a collapsible umbrella.

Thanks for the info., I don't know what I am worried about it. We live in Illinois & today our high was a balmy 27, so anything above 60 I would take rain or shine! Have a good week & Thanksgiving.

Hi also from Fl.
Our forecast for next week is cooler but clear which means it is only a chance. Nothing brewing out there. Showers at this time of year are usually in the late afternoon. Usually don't last long. Doesn't look like anything too bad.

While in St Thomas in February we were told by the taxi driver that it rains EVERY day there....mists really and it didn't mess up our day at all! Keeps the islands tropical I guess
