Not an expert by any means but I was supposed to be there now and weeks ago when I checked weather it shows all clouds and storms every day.

When I checked ysterday shows chance of rain only which I hear is normal.

I had to reschedule for beginning of December and I am not even going to check the weather.

Don;t worry about what you can;t change - if you look on this forum you will see many posts about the weather and that the occassional daily rain is quite normal.

Dont know which forecast you are looking at so far ahead ! We go Sunday same time as last year -( when one site said rain every day and we were just as concerned.) Yes we saw some rain for the first few days - 10 minutes here, 20 minutes there. A downpour or two overnight -tip -dont leave beach towels on patio chairs overnight -oops!! Longest period was one lunch time -lasted 2 hours, we made new friends over our extended lunch.

The day we did the Island safari the showers followed us around and we managed to outrun them until afternoon ! Honestly, it didnt impact on our trip at all, the rain freshened things up and you appreciate thats why there are some wonderful tropical gardens. Enjoy your trip and dont worry.

If you want to check the weather NOW, have a look at the webcam at Mullins Beach - looks great !

Because of the islands close proximity to the equator,it makes forecasting the weather very difficult.Rain is normally forecast every day although usually your unlucky if you get a shower lasting more than half hour.As the Bajans call it,its only liquid sunshine anyway!!

We leave for Barbados this Saturday. We were there last November and had glorious weather every day. I don't usually pay much attention to the weather reports for Barbados. Most times we've gone, we may get 20 minutes of rain here and there. Only one time, which was a February, did we have a lot of rain for sveral days in a row. The forecast I looked at for the coming week said 20% chance of rain. I'll take that. Don't fret over it, since there's not much you can do about it.
