Doubtful too many people will be on TA while on vacation. :)

If you want to see the weather at this exact moment, then look at the webcams:

No one can predict the weather for next week. Even the U.S. meteorologists can't get it right. LOL!

Not sure the current conditions help you much.... things change quickly sometimes.

Looks like according to the above the chance of rain is waning over the next 7-10 days.

You do realize Aruba is nearly a 1000 miles from the caymans and has a totally different weather pattern, etc?

Hi Sevencostanza, yes.... I know about the difference and that the ABC islands often have better weather in the summer months than many other islands. The weather report is showing "Partly Cloudy / Wind" with no sun for most of the next 10 days... does that sound possible..?

Thanks again for any help.

Every time we've gone to Aruba, I have checked the ten-day forecast before leaving home (I don't know why I have this morbid curiosity about something over which I have no control!) and the forecast always--ALWAYS!--says "partly cloudy, windy, chance of showers."

We are always grateful for the clouds and the wind and the showers are such an aberration that they don't bother us a bit. Granted, I would be dismayed if the forecast predicted gloom and doom for the entirety of my vacation, but lousy weather is atypical of Aruba.

If you decide to go, I hope you have a wonderful time.

This http://www.meteo.aw/marckforecast.php is the local forecast from the LOCAL meteorological service on the island.

FWIW, the island has been dry the 2 weeks. The last week especially has been most clear with some puffy white clouds. Today is the first day which is cloudy and the weather service is saying,

"tropical wave located this morning over the

Eastern Caribbean area moves Westwards. This system is

expected to move South of the local islands during Saturday.

Most of the weather activity related to this wave are to the

North and South of the islands. However, due to increase in

lower level moisture some local showers are expected over the isle of ARUBA.

Otherwise, the present strong wind flow results in a higher wave action

over the exposed waters."

Having said this, there is no where in the world where you can go where the weather is guaranteed ;)
