The forecast here in the summer is always for rain every day.

It's the tropics during rainy season ... it rains at some point every day.

This time of year, one can't really accurately predict more than a day or 2 in advance.

I mean the maps are showing hurriacane and tropical storm watch ALL week long. Is that normal too. I go to the carribean for a week each year (first time to PR). I know the rains usually last for a short time, then suns out. The maps for next week in PR seem so severe. Has it been a normal week so far?

Thanks.

depending on where you are on the island there are storms that 'pop' up and dissapate...almost everyday at some point or another. it passes most often in a short time UNLESS it is a tropical system that is larger and more developed. check out the satellite maps on http://www.srh.noaa.gov/sju/

and take it all with the understanding that things can and do change frequently here on an island surrounded by water and at the hottest time of year! You will still have a great time with the trip.

There are currently no hurricane nor tropical storm watches nor warnings in the vicinity of Puerto Rico. There haven't been any here yet this season.

Here is the National Hurrican Center web site ... http://www.nhc.noaa.gov/

The ten day forecast from Weather.com is for scatter T-storms or showers over the next ten days. These forecasts usually mean blue skys mixed with short bursts of rain. It has been sunny all day here in Rio Grande with the exception of 3 or 4 5 to 10 minute rain bursts passing by. This is typical of the weather here.

Everyone always seem fixed on the rain percentage and do not look at the UV index (the other side fo the story), Next week is 10+Extreme all week. That says something.

Weather forecasts, whether % chance of rain or UV-index, should be used as rough guides as to what to expect, not gospel.

Looking back at historical data ... in 2010, we had 201 "extreme" UV-index days (…noaa.gov/products/…tjs_10.png), and yet we had the most rainfall -- 89.51" measured at the SJU airport -- we've had since 1898 (http://www.srh.noaa.gov/sju//?n=rainfall2010).

Moral of the story ... stop looking at weather forecasts, bring an umbrella or poncho, plan "rainy day" activities (museum, movie, mall) just in case, and hope for the best. Chances are you will not get "rained out" (unless there is a "tropical weather event" ... then all bets are off).

Or ... visit the island during "dry" season (Feb/Mar).
