- Culebra Rainfall Data & Observations
  • By William Kunke <wkunke787 at gmail.com>

Good Morning,  Culebra's total rainfall for July was 2.6 inches.  This is below our average by an inch.  We seem to be having quick sprinkly type showers this month, just enough to keep things green, but the soils are very dry at this point.  As the attached chart shows, we are at 18.2 inches of rain for the year.

The attached photos are some weather related observations and other things observed this month on Culebra:  The rainfall data chart, Peaceful anchorage, ISS flyover of Culebra, Saragoss invasion, Conjunction of Moon & Venus, Rainbow, Flounder, Turtle, Fish & Coral, and a Balancing Sea Gull.

Enjoy,  William

Good Morning,

Culebra's rainfall for the month of May was 3.3 inches, bringing our yearly total up to 13.2 inches.  This is a bit below normal as the attached chart over the past 30 years will show.  The first part of the month was dominated by Sahara Dust, as experienced by most islanders.  This past week brought some clearing and showers which cleaned out the air also.

I also attach a few snorkeling photos, Enjoy,  William

Good Morning,

Culebra received 4.6 inches of rain in April, almost double our monthly average.  This brings our total to 9.9 inches of rain for 2017 thus far.  We have had good rain over the weekend, mostly soaking in and giving the island a thick green look.

I attach the rainfall data chart, and some  recent snorkeling photos.

Good Morning,  Culebra recived 2 inches of rain last night (see attached photo) and it seems to have soaked in well.  Our grasses, trees, and flowers will really benefit from this.  It certainly has been a cool spring time here.  We wish all you islanders well as we prepare for the "H" season.

Enjoy,  William

Good Morning,

Culebra had a very dry month until a week ago.  For the month we received 3.8 inches of rain, at the end of the month.  It's been five years since we received any amount close to that, our average for March is 1.7 inches.  Our year total is now at 5.3 inches

Yesterday was a clear, bright morning for snorkeling.  We saw the usual tropical fish along the reef, a large Atlantic Sting Ray and then as we came ashore, a big surprise.  4 deer grazing on the grass on the beach.  They just stood there watching me for a bit and then went back to the fresh green grass from the recent rainfall.  A really exciting morning for me,  Enjoy,  William

- Culebra's Old Year Data & Happy New Year
  • By William Kunke <wkunke787 at gmail.com>

Good Morning,

Culebra finished 2016 with 1.5 inches of rain for December and total of 33.8 inches for the year.  A very average month and year, with the "Christmas" winds showing-up right on schedule.  We had a very pleasant and safe year with no major storms coming our way and just enough rain to keep the cisterns full and the island green and growing.

We thank Storm Carib for keeping us all connected with information, data, and island living around the Caribbean.

Attached are the rainfall data chart for Culebra, and an under/over water photo,  Enjoy,  William
