Can you guarantee weather in Iowa next Thursday.

You CANNOT here

I show no RAIN or a little and I still DO NOT trust these sites

myforecast.com/bin/expanded_forecast_15day.m…

I DO TRUST Webcams

Would this be maybe your 1`st time here??

Use the link vansundog provided and look at the pop number. Ive found that if thats over 35% youre most likely getting wet. For how long who knows....could be a 5 min shower or it could be torrential downpour all day. In years past was a quick shower...this year/fall has been kinda different and very wet.

Didnt you just finish writing you dont trust the site?

The Pop number is the only column that matters on that chart

here is a good website lisa...

timeanddate.com/weather/…playa-del-carmen

very , very accurate 48hr forecast , if you look at the bottom of the 48hr column % and amount is given, you will notice even though there may be a 10% chance there is no amount given - that's a hint.

click the tab at the top to get a two week forecast its still pretty accurate and will a least show you the trend.

have fun watching the weather and a fun trip.

We stayed Sept 20th week & read that it rained everyday. It rained one afternoon. Stop worrying about the small stuff & have fun.

Honestly, weather questions should be banned for the Mayan Riviera. We do have tropical storms that can morph into a hurricane, and folks who travel to this area should purchase travel insurance during those months, but most weather forecasts are a nuisance. It's the tropics, it can rain, but it is very localized and spotty. If it rains where you are standing, move.
