    Default "How's the Weather?"

    I thought I 'd start a thread for weather related general questions, as we seem to get a lot of these each week. As even meteorologists are about 50/50 on accurate weather forecasting, we're probably as good at doing it since many of us go year to year, different months, etc.

    Here are a few helpful links to kick the thread off:

    Current weather in MoBay:
    http://www.wunderground.com/global/stations/78388.html

    Weather "through the year" based on averages, patterns...a general "what to expect":

    http://jamaica-guide.info/weather/
    http://travelwithkids.about.com/cs/j...icaweather.htm
    http://www.southtravels.com/america/...a/weather.html

    Helpful tip (of the day?):

    Yes, it does tend to rain almost every day, so that forecast on your IPhone isn't wrong...just incomplete. The rain usually lasts only an hour or so, happens mostly in the afternoons, and the sun comes back.

    Itís pretty much boring all year around. Rain in the afternoons that makes beautiful sunsets and HOT, HOT, HOT.

    Thanks for the links. I look at the Caribbean satellite loop almost every day.

    Life is good

    When we were there is September it rained everyday but one. As stated above, maybe for an hour. Usually around 3:30 to 4:30. In this general area. I think one day out of the rest it rained longer. But we just sat in the pool or hut tub and had fun.

    We got married in Negril May 10, 2010 at 10:00 a.m. at Couples Swept Away and watched the weddings (our room was right above where they did the weddings) all week.
    10:00 a.m. is the perfect time.
    The lighting is best for the photographs.
    It is the COOLEST part of the day.
    Good luck!
    Our wedding was perfect!

    Iced Coffee -

    We have been to Jamaica and Couples for a total of 40 days and it only rained hard on two of those days...once for 45 minutes and once for a little over an hour. Then the sun comes out and in an hour everything is dry again. About 4 other days it was cloudy and sprinkled a little, but never really started raining. We spent 8 days at CSS in March of '09 and it never rained once. Always sunny too. But, you must remember, you are going to the tropics where it can rain anytime. I would just be prepared to postpone the wedding an hour or so if it does rain.

    Fake it if you have to so you don't worry too much. The important thing is that you and your future spouse are going to get married and the other important thing is that you will be in the tropical beauty of CSS for at least 3 nights. If it happens to rain on your wedding day, enjoy it for the special ceremony that it is and then the next day, throw the dress or suit back on and snap some pictures...no one will know the difference and you can think of it as two wedding days...for my wife and I, every day at Couples is like a new wedding day anyways...it just has that effect. Enjoy your wedding days!

    No fear, May is a fabulous time to be there. We usually travel up to mid-late June and in 10+ years have never any total wash outs. Just the opposite, great days and maybe a late afternoon shower, perfectly refreshing. Sometimes we be beg for them and they never come.

    we have great friends that went to CSS last year to get married. it was raining that morning. it rained all the way up to 30 minutes before the ceremony which was plenty of time to get everything setup and ready to go for the wedding. the skies cleared and they had a wonderful ceremony.

    hope your special day is wonderful as well.

    we are getting married at cti in September, we have booked a 4pm slot, but worried it is likely to rain at that time? Would we be better with a morning time for the wedding?

    I have been obsessed with keeping an eye on the hurricane potential as my husband and I are leaving tomorrow for CSA. I just checked and Earl and Fiona will miss the Caribbean. I'm a little worried about TS Gaston, which just formed. Here is the latest info from NOAA.

    Let's all pray it turns north.

    When we were at CN in April, there was one day when it seemed to rain very, very heavy for about three hours. Very unusual, compared to the other four times we'd visited. Even so, I was amazed at how low all of the ponds were. If they weren't experiencing drought conditions, it had to be close. Remember, everybody, you can't have wetlands if you never get wet!

    And we're generally in swimsuits all day long, so what's the problem?

    We are coming to CTI this week from AZ. Should we bring raincoats? umbrellas? I understand that I have to expect an hour or two of rain a day but what do people bring?
