What is the weather like today?

What is the high temp & how does it feel? We arrive on Friday and will be there for a week. I am so worried that we are going to have an awful heat wave...

Why worry about weather when it is something you cannot control. The weather today may be different from the weather on Friday anyway (although on Aruba, the weather does not change too much.)

Weather is basically quite consistent all year long, water temps do change a little bit. At certain times the winds aren't as strong, making it feel hotter. In all my years, I hadn't heard about big "heat waves" until this past summer when a FaceBook friend posted that it was 100.

As Amy said, there is nothing you can do about the weather, so please don't worry about it. :)

Weather is what it is. When vacationing anywhere you just need to go with the flow and not let it "break" your vacation.

Above is live camera at Bucuti Tara Suites. As you can see, lots of folks enjoying the beach. (if it works - having some tech difficulties)

At 2 pm, 18 MPH winds, hazy, temperature 89 F, heat index: 100.6 F ... sounds like paradise to me!

Like Amy said, though, no sense fretting over something you cannot change. Our first Christmas trip I worried incessantly beforehand about rain during the height of the rainy season. Oh it rained plenty, but it was all at night or early in the morning. Did not ruin one day or one activity and I worried needlessly.

Besides the local forecast http://www.meteo.aw/marckforecast.php looks terrific! 10% chance of showers on Friday means a chance of a cloud passing overhead with a bit of a rain shower in it. There have been quite a few times when we were on the beach under brilliant sunshine and it was raining down the beach from us. It never lasts but more than 10-15 minutes. A great time to slip into the ocean or read under the palapa ;)
