- Rain down O rain down

It started raining in bouts of heavy downpours early this morning, ~3:00AM (I woke up to shut the window as the wind was driving the rain inside). We got a bit of lightning and thunder late afternoon.

Several farmers and neighbours with backyard gardens or flowers in the front yard were sing Hallelujah!  This afternoon we got a constant drizzle for a solid 2 hrs. That's the kind of rain plants love, easier for soil absorption I figure.

Now with a lull in the rain I can hear happy tree frogs and waves crashing on shore unusually loud for this area. I'm tempted to venture out to look at the sea but I'm pretty warm and cozy inside so... Nope!

MeteoFrance predicts a rainy day tomorrow. TWD states "The tropical wave approaching the Windward Islands will move into the E Caribbean tonight... The next tropical wave will enter the E Caribbean on Wednesday..."

Back to wx watching. Let's see when NHC names TS Bill.

Stay safe and dry,

Experiencing torrential rain here in Marigot which has been going now for nearly 45 minutes. Flooded at the front of my house, I cant see anything towards the bay which is unusual. I am guessing that Castries is probably flooding already.

Keep warm everyone.

Only a couple of days from the start of the season, local met office saying the the leading forecast agencies have predicted below normal tropical cyclone activity in our region due to the development on an El Nino in the Pacific Ocean.

However no one really knows so residents are being urged to make any necessary preparations.

Today has been sunny and humid after a couple of days of heavy intermittent showers here in Marigot.

Take care everyone and lets hope it is a quiet season.
