Does it RAIN all day during the rainy season?

We are leaving for PC on June 24th and the weather network shows rain and thundershowers for the entire week. Normally I wouldn't be concerned, but because it is rainy season I'm actually starting to worry about this. Any thoughts?

we have been 2X at the end of June and had awesome weather.................dont mind the weather sites, there may be rain but it is usually brief unless a tropical storm is passing by. All that said its still better then being at home

If you look at any on line forcast it will show rain 90% of the time or more. IF that were really the case all of us living here would have gills.

You will see much more sun then rain so pack the sunscreen. The online forcasts have no clue.

You should be looking at the percentage chances of rain not the pictures. Only be concerned when it's showing 80% or more chance of rain. Even then it can be spotty depending where you're staying in PC. Even a few miles either way can be the difference whether you get wet or stay dry.

The next week looks pretty good to me. :-)

You might get a shower early in the morning, but it will have dried up and sun will be out before you head to the beach.

15 more sleeps for us

Soooooo excited.

It usually rains at night or for about 20 minutes early morning or afternoon.

Hawaii is the same way. When I went to Maui is showed rain everyday on the forecast but it didn't rain once while we were there.

It will be fine for you!

what would you consider the rainy season for PC??

because I would not know of any Rainy Season to exist in Punta Cana, at no time of the year.

rainy seasons are times when specific Regions of the Globe get every year again at the same time periods full water loads of rain, such as the well known Monsun or such,

but Punta Cana??, one of the Dryest Areas of the DR/Caribbean??

no freakin' way do we have any Rainy Season.

Happy Travels

As mentioned, PC is very dry. In any case, the daily forecast for low lying areas in the Dominican Republic is partly sunny, hot with a chance of a thunderstorm.

Rain here is passing and most Dominican do not even own umbrellas.
