Well Folks did we get rain last night or what?
Heavy down pours all night for a total of 3.20 inches in approx. 7 hours.
Not complaining though. Better then using cistern water to keep plants watered.
From NOAA images more is heading this way. Big clouds with cold tops.
Be Well

Hi Folks,
Sorry about the late posting of this info. Thought & rethought about "should I post or not". My wife said she felt it while sitting at Nisbet Plantation Beach  Club enjoying the food & lovely weather. Her remark was "it felt like someone grabbed the back of my chair & gave it a small jerk" I was sitting across from her but felt nothing.

Cool meaning temperature wise! 72.9 outside air temp at 12 noon. It's a cloudy, rainy day today with .35 in. so far. GEOS8 images suggest a day of rain.

We just can't seem to get away from the constant rain. OK a nice shower at night is fine with me but cloudy rain/shower filled days are getting to be the norm around here.
I know avg. annual rain fall= 48" for us & we're very near that. Just seems it all came in Oct-Dec. Talk again some time.

It's Official.....the nice weather is back!
After about 2 weeks of clouds & rain the "stuck" wave is gone. This is more like the normal weather we've grown accustomed to. Vacationers come on down.

Title: Clear Day
Talk about wet !! Three Inches of rain so far this month & looking at the weather pattern it looks like the mass of rain producing wave just off to the right of the islands will linger for a few days keeping up in the wet pattern. Thank you but all the cisterns are over flowing & everything is green & bright. Tourists here in Nevis are depressed....returning home with NO tan? Sorry folks I'm just the messenger. I'll report when the fair weather returns.


- Beautiful Day

Today on Nevis, just doesn't get any better. Sunny, dry, slight breeze, crystal blue sky. Picture of our sister island of St.Kitts from the house. Be Well Everyone.

With all the rain this month things certainly are green, green, green to the max. This month, so far, is the winner for total monthly rainfall. Weather is just great here. Did some sailing around Booby Island this afternoon & waved to the passengers on AA on final approach into Nevis. Gee no one waved back must have been more interested in the view of Mt. Nevis.

Gotta love those guys & gals at the National Weather Service Hurricane Center. Their model is proving out. Fabian has turned from Lat 15.5N to Lat 16.8N (5am). Nevis weather stuff attached (if interested).


- Still on Lat 15.5N

My charting shows little movement away from Latitude 15.5N in the last 24 hrs (11:00 am)
This from the National Hurricane Center
I hope this High Pressure Ridge will force a change in it's course. Here's hoping things develop according to NWS predictions.
