I'm flying out on Tuesday, and after reading this 10 day forecast, I'm panicing!
temporaltoothfairy, can I quote you from 7th June:
"Thank you for clearing that up for me. I was starting to worry. I shall stop now"
Please stop worrying!! ;-)
Have a look at :
Weather.com always show the weather in puerto plata as rain/storms.
Have a look at:
That's a Infrared radar image. No cloud near the DR.
Scroll down this link below to the first table. This is the weather for the past 14 days. Look at the Events column on the far right.
There were 2 days with rain/thunder. If you actually click on those two days (click on the date on the 1st column) you'll see that these storms happened between 12AM and 6AM.
keep scrolling down...there has never been 10 consecutive days of poor weather as weather.com is suggesting!
The weather will be great! If the above hasn't convinced you then I doubt anything will! ;-)
How do you find all this stuff out? You're a fountain of knowlwdge.
If u look hard enough its all there!!
this link shows that actual weather in puerto plata every hour 25hours (every 3-4 hours at night, been looking for week now i think it has showed rain (light rain) during about 3 hours all week!!!
I am dreading what happened last time i tried to go, Hurricane Ivan but that was september not july and i been convinced by what i have found and read on t'internet!!
temporaltoothfairy, as Steven pointed out its there if you look hard enough.
I hope that we have eased your concerns.
Thanks, you have eased my mind too!!!!
I was alittle concerned...
Toothfairy...no worries. Stew UK 1 is correct w/ info of that website. It is very accurate. Being from West Palm Beach I have used it very much the last few years to prepare for our hurricanes. It is aways right on the marker...(unfortunately it always hasn't been good in my Floridan case=(...anyway...your wedding will be fabulous. We will be looking for you in your wedding dress when we arrive to the resort. I will be the one screaming Oh my god I can't believe I am turning 30=).... and embracing it with several cocktails!Have a good travel, and relax.
temporaltoothfairy, just to ease your concerns about the weather once more, you posted your original message on 16th June. The forecast on weather.com at that point was rain and storms for days ahead.
The following link is the past 7 days. As you'll see (right hand column):
there has been no rain or storms....Just as I predicted! ;-) Have a good trip!
We leave in a few hours to stay in the airport hotel. We fly at 9.45 GMT tomorrrow morning.
packing is underway and there are no long sleeves or jumpers or umbrellas in there!!
Have a safe trip. I have 1 week to go!
see you there!!!
