Weather in Antigua in Dec

I'm going to Antigua next Fri - Dec 9. Staying a week. Is it really going to rain the whole time??

No!!!! Don't know where you are getting your information but it's wrong.

If you scroll down and/or use the search feature to bring up ALL the weather related threads (someone asks this question at least once a week) you'll find the same answer repeated over and over. Basically on-line weather forecasts ALWAYS predict rain and they are ALWAYS wrong. If you checked them everyday for a year for every island in the Caribbean you'd swear the sun never shines.

Weather fronts move fast in the tropics and rain if it does come is mostly in the form of very localized and very brief showers lasting mere minutes not hours. It's not unusual for it to sprinkle in one area and there be bright sun less than 1/4 mile away. All day rains are rare - there's nothing major showing on the the weather satellites at the moment.

WT - check out this weather site...timeandate.com....we found it to be very accurate when we were there.

Don't worry it will be fine.

Here right now and yes rain is forecast all week, but we had a good 3 hours of sunshine today so take the forecast with a pinch of salt and get back to the rum punch!

Yes, it rained most of the day today on our island (40 miles away) too but OP is asking about next week and it's difficult to predict weather that far in advance.

The weather pattern we are in now is very unusual - hopefully it will pass soon.
