- I hesitate to add my two bits ...

Today is a total washout, the first this Hurricane season!  There is always a 
thunder storm before the arrival of intense rain and sure enough there was a 
cough and a rumble and the heavens opened and remained open.  Sounds rather 
biblical, don't you think.  
Himself -what -does -the -garden turned up bright and early to collect his pay 
cheque ( it's his day off ).  He was anxious to buy his melon seeds to plant so 
I suspect the farmers knew the rains were coming.  
The two Grans staying with me from UK post exams are a bit glum.  There is a 
heat wave in the UK and everyone's tanning beautifully.  One of the Grans is 
still milky white and the other has a built in tan but is usually very dark by 
the end of week one.  I am a bit reluctant to send them back like this, their 
embarrassment will be intense!
This must be a tropical wave passing through, it is very stormy up here.
I hope all your boats are shipshape and safe for the season and that you had a 
super sailing season....there you go!

- 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.

- Congratulations to both Grenada and Barbados at Chelsea.

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.
