weather forecast for 11/5/10 for 1 weeks holiday

The forecast for when we are due to arrive next week gives rain on more than 3 days - some forums have said that the rain is just showers. Does anyone know if this will be the case next week, we don't want the weather to spoil our holiday!

We are staying just outside St Lawrence Gap.

There are numerous posts on here re the weather - if you do a search you will find hundreds of them.

It rains almost everyday somewhere on the island - doesn't mean you will see it. The forecast is just that, a forecast, and no one can possibly tell you with 100% accuracy what the weather will be like next week so stop worrying about it, get on the plane and enjoy your holiday!

Have a lovely time!

As Scary has just said, if you study the Weather for Barbados you will always see some mention of rain on most days. But the rain could be a little shower which ten minutes later has completely gone and all dried up again .

Its such a small island that the trade winds usually blow any "bad stuff " away very quickly. And if it does rain ...its nice and warm rain ! .

You have paid your money ...so get on the plane ..... I am sure you will be fine !

Have a good one !.

Dont look at weather forecasts!!! It'll be sunny when it says rain and could rain when it says sunny.

We are in Barbados at the moment and it is absolutely boiling hot. We've had rain but it's brief and warm and very welcome. You will be praying for clouds once you're here.

Footychick has given by far the best advice

You could look at 5 forecasts and they will all in some way be different ...forecasts do not control or affect the weather ..it will be what it it will be ....chill out and enjoy whatever you get

...it is after all a tropical island ...some rain is inevitable and at present badly needed by the island ...if you wanted to have guaranteed dry sunny weather you should not have booked Barbados ...especially in May

No matter where you are weather can always spoil a holiday ...as already mentioned it is at present probably too hot for some in Barbados

This post just HAS to be a wind up ! Can the OP catagorically state what the weather will be like in her home town in a certain week ?? Is she intending to cancel her holiday if it rains ?? If so, I suggest she cancels, because no one can forcast the weather with such precise certainty, and we are all praying for rain so the Island can return to it's customery "green".and water won't need rationing as was previously anticipated.

Having just returned I must say that we had the hottest weather for April/May that I have ever experienced. In three weeks there was only one day that was a little overcast with a few showers ... which was a nice relief!

If this is your first visit to the island it can be a little worrying looking at all those weather forecasts that are predicting downpours of rain. As others have said, don't look anymore, get packed and have a wonderful time. You may have a few odd showers ( its called 'liquid sunshine!') but really nothing to worry about ..... believe me!

Have a great holiday and let us know how it was!
