Eastern Caribbean Jan. Weather?


Recommended Posts

We leave Saturday for our first cruise and will be porting in Grand Turk, St. Maarten, Tortola, and HAL's Half Moon Cay. I've just checked the weather for these ports for next week and I see that every day we are suppose to be in a port it looks like a 20% chance of rain. Is this common Caribbean weather for January or is it just my typical luck? HAHA Thanks!

We leave Sunday for a similar cruise and I have been wondering the same thing. Some of the days even have a lightning bolt in the picture. Are these quick showers or are they storms that last awhile? Thanks to anyone who can help! Just trying to figure out how accurate the weather websites are.

20% chance of rain in a tropical area is generally no big deal - a possibility of a brief shower here or there.

Obviously I can't predict for sure, but if this is the forecast you are probably good.

20% is not bad going.

What are you expecting? absolute perfection? Guarantees?
