- Could we see some rain in next couple of days?

Looking at the Synopsis chart, radar and satellite images it does seem that there is a weak tropical wave out to the East of Grenada. The radar is showing what, to me , looks like some rain between Grenada and Barbados and a larger area of cloud further down to the SE. Unfortunately it seems to be moving from the SE towards the NW, currently missing Grenada. But hopefully the wave will continue to move westward? Maybe, and with a bit of luck, Grenada could have some well needed rain over the next couple of days - well the garden needs it.

Sent from afar. Therefore no eye witness report but I am happy to hear first-hand reports, especially if there is some decent rain.

Both received GOLD at Chelsea Flower Show, well done. Just caught a (too small) glimpse of the Grenada display, on the TV.

Well done - I am sure the climate of the SE Caribbean helps, despite the dry patch we are going through!

I am currently in the UK watching Grenada weather from a distance. I can't see any real rain on the horizon, unfortunately for our garden. Some high cloud drifting off of South America.

Here in the UK it is quite chilly, with some heavy showers between some sunshine. Rather breezy, but warming as the week goes on. Good for Chelsea.

- A couple of blips on radar?

Don't hold your breath, but I see a couple of small blips on radar, which could bring a small shower soon. The Martinique radar shows tham approaching, but Trinidad radar shows them just passing South. I have always suspected Martinque radar is slightly adrift.

But we do seem to be in an area of slightly more cloud streaming across the Atlantic. But it may not have much, if any, rain for us.

But is that a small shower half way between here and Barbados, and heading our way?

Don't hold your breath. It is tweeny weeny, but is it possible there are some more showers possible tomorrow?

The garden and the water tank needs it.

Believe it or not, I typed this 5 hours ago but forgot to send it! The rain did come. Not enough yet though.
