Well, I don't know about the rainforest, but we didn't see any rain in Frigate Bay. Blissfully, the winds did kick in though. On the Caribbean side, it was almost chilly (almost) and the waves were pretty choppy (photo from Shipwreck on Friars Beach). 


This morning, it's been misty-looking out there, but still no rain. There's a slight breeze, so a nice day.

Well, so far we haven't had squat for weather. Tuesday, it was silvery in the morning, cleared up, and then got cloudy as the sun set. This morning, we had a very calm (meaning no wind whatsoever) sunrise.

The Nevis Disaster Management Department Facebook page has posted a flood warning from 2pm today (Wednesday) through 8am Thursday:

Synopsis: The interaction of a tropical wave with an upper level trough will continue to generate cloudiness and showers across the Leeward Islands and British Virgin Islands today and tonight. As a result a flash flood watch is in effect until 2 pm today Wednesday, as rainfall totals of 1-2 inches are possible. This watch may be upgraded to a flood warning later today.

Wx: Skies today will be cloudy to overcast with scattered to numerous showers. Some of the showers could be moderate to heavy at times and accompanied by isolated thunderstorms. Tonight, a gradual improvement is expected and skies will be cloudy with a reduction in shower activity.

Winds: SSE-SSW at 3-7 kts but becoming lighter and variable at times.
Seas: Moderate waves 1.5m/5ft.
Barometric Pressure: Near normal
Sunset today: 5:41 pm.
Sunrise tomorrow: 6:08 am.

Looks like we've got a tropical wave passing by today. We've had rain the last couple of nights, but forecasts are for thunderstorms this afternoon and shower activity through Thursday.


There are puffy, silver clouds out and about right now, so I guess I better get out there and get some exercise! Here's a rainbow from yesterday (Monday).
