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.
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.
