someone reassure me about the weather!

my husband, 11 month old, and I will be at Beaches from this Sunday through Thursday, and the weather forecast has me anxious! it's 30% chance of rain every day we are there. What does that mean there? Here in Chicago that means its going to be ugly and overcast all day, lol! But when we've been in Mexico that usually means sun all day and maybe will rain for 15 minutes...

so am I in for a mostly sunny vacation or a mostly cloudy vacation?

It's always 30% of more on every island, nature of tropics.

On top right of this page, click on "oh no" weather link.

Worse case there's tons to do at Beaches. ;-)

I am also getting to Beaches on Sunday, and I honestly wouldn't worry about the weather. This is the third year in a row I have been in November, and it has been absolutely wonderful! We barely had any rain at all. Both other times I went, the forecast looked awful, calling for rain every day, but I sure didn't see any of it! This time I know to not even freak myself out by looking at the forecast. I'm sure you will have an amazing time, and like blamona said, worst case scenario you will not run out of things to keep you occupied at Beaches. :)

I assure you that the forecast is correct. But you need to understand its meaning first. This is what 30% rain means...

30% that it will rain in the 100 mile radius of TCI

5% that it will rain in Provo

2% that you will witness the rain (it may rain at night, or during a blink)

10% that Osoleil will have a new chef that day

1% that the island will run out of Coconut Bambarra rum

100% that Ttews1 is drinking Coconut Bambarra rum while reading this

15% that Beaches introduces a new night tuck-in character. Next up, Obama, The Progressive Insurance Lady, Borat

50% that a TA regular moves to Provo

100% that Gigi is currently on Facebook

I was just there last week. Read my "notes" which include the weather and the fact that we had a 30% chance of rain the whole week. tripadvisor.com/ShowTopic-g147395-i212-k6962…

I have a friend who is at Beaches with her family this week, and they have had one day of rain the whole week, the rest of the days sunny and hot. There is some wave action, however, that's made snorkeling from shore a tad difficult and not quite as enjoyable as usual, however that could all change by the time you get there. Please go and just take the week as it comes and not worry. Enjoy!
