What was the weather REALLY like last week?

I'm trying to put the 10-day forecast in perspective. I was watching it last week and it pretty much said 50% change precipitation (thunderstorms) every day. It looks like this coming week, too (we arrive tomorrow afternoon). During our past trips, that kind of forecast could mean BEAUTIFUL weather every day OR it could mean rains and dark skies. I'm hoping that if last week was a nice week, I can feel optimistic that the currently dismal forecast means nothing about the first part of our trip!

We had a wonderful rain storm one morning for an hour or so, with clouds for a day. Otherwise, it was hot and beautiful!

If you've been here before, you will know that our forecasters here don't know any better than those in Boston!

You can't correlate the forecasts you read online with actual weather conditions - they ALWAYS predict rain so the only times they are "correct" are the few times it might happen to rain.

First of all, the entire week was very windy. Sunday and Monday, there were bright skies. Tuesday and Wednesday had high thin clouds. Thursday, it rained off and on but began to pour in earnest at 5:00 pm. It continued to rain through the night and stopped around 11:30 am on Friday and then it was a sunny day until 5:00 when it poured again with a thunder storm offshore. It was raining heavily when we left on Saturday. We had a great time! Be sure to visit Pinel Island and Friars Bay Beach....beautiful!

Yesturday was a washout from 1:00 on. Today was nice. Few clouds and no rain in Simpson Bay area. Not sure about other areas on island but I can't complain after two rainless previous weeks.. Island needs the rain so let it come.
