Anybody who's been to Antigua lately....what was the weather like? It is showing rain/showers almost every day right now....
We spent 10 days in Antigua over the holidays. Returning on 12-27-08. The weather during our stay was great. It did rain almost every day, but it was a quick 5-10 minute tropical storm. I think the day we left it was raining the entire morning and finally brightened up around 12pm.
That's reassuring - thanks! I always thpought this time of year was the best for caribbean weather _ am I wrong? Have been on other islands in the past and experienced those rain showers that dried up pretty quick so would not be too concerned once it doesnt impact ur hooliday too much!
Were the temperatures good while you were there?
Yes, the temperatures were good. Great even. I would say low 80's in the day and cooling a bit at night. But I really didn't feel the heat that much, b/c the ocean breeze was constant at the resort. (Sandals). Very pleasant weather.
You can check the weather from the live webcam at the cruise ship dock. You may have to refresh the screen though.
I love that link - thanks for letting me know about it!!
I am interested to hear more about the weather in late May. Thats when we wil be going. Celebrating our 25th.
I was in Barbados in early May and Cuba in late may/early June and the weather was fantastic! I am assuming that it would be comparable in Antigua but am open to correction! May till October is considered rainy/hurricane season, however, my experience was that if it rained, it was at night or at most for 10-20 minutes during the day.
