The St Maarten Met Office Newsletter for May has been released.
In summary it says:
"Most of the islands in the Caribbean have experienced low rainfall activity over the past six months to a year. Severe drought has developed and water rationing has begun in Antigua and St. Eustatius. Severe drought has also developed in Aruba, Barbados, Northern Guyana, Martinique and St. Kitts among others. The alert level for St. Maarten and the most of the Leeward Islands has been upgraded to Warning. A drought warning means drought is evolving therefore management plans should be implemented and water should be conserved and/or recycled. "

Good Morning
St Maarten is dry, dry, dry. We need rain badly. 
The attached image shows climate information for March.
Rainfall was below average and so far April is looking like it will be the same.
