Weather next week in western Caribbean

Recommended Posts

We are on our first cruise leaving Sunday! Doing the western Caribbean on the getaway. I googled the weather and it's looking like rain most of the week. Anyone been down there recently? Has it been rainy?

Doesn't matter what it has been lately but in the Caribbean it may have a forecast for rain but very often it's hit and miss and may only rain for a short time.

Yep, it'll likely be spotty rain on one part of an island, but not the other. Or last just a few minutes. It's not considered the rainy season in the Caribbean this time of year, so you'll likely see sunshine most of the time and possibly a quick-moving rain shower or two. Enjoy!

We were there December 9 - 16. In spite of what others have said it is is rainy season. We had bad weather all day for four days. It rained off and on but was cloudy and cool all four days (both sea days, Roatan and Harvest Caye). Don't count on hit nd miss showers, this is the time of the year that it rains all day.

 

Keep in mind it is the weather and mother nature does what she wants.

Ask Siri. She'll tell you to bring an umbrella. Looks like a good chance of rain next week.

Unless Siri is actually in the Western Caribbean at the present time I wish she would tell you to take an umbrella.

The forecast this far out won't even be close Lol. Our last Western two years ago out of Tampa had rain the entire week, the forecast never changed the Sunday with left Tampa. Guess what, it was Sunny and 85f the entire week we only had one rain shower at night LOL

Are you departing from Tampa?  You might want to read about how the fog affected those starting and ending their cruises.  No fault of the cruise companies.
