    All I can say is that we arrived the day of Tropical depression Olga this year and were worried about the weather. We’ve been here since Dec. 13th and have not had one day of bad weather. I wouldn’t worry too much about the reports. Sometimes, However a northwester comes in and if you are divers, that could put a damper on your activities—Some of our group loved it when there were storms and big waves for jumping and surfing in on.

    Hi thanks for the encouragement! I guess I’m just worried because we only have three full days on the island and last year the weather was too rough for snorkeling. We did rent a car for our entire stay, so we can go where we want.

    If the forecast is for North East winds (25 – 30), I’m hoping that it won’t effect SMB too badly. Any opinions on that? We almost changed our plans, but our 8yr old daughter said that she would rather go to GC with bad weather than St. Thomas with good weather! So, I guess we go back to GC. We’ll be at the Marriott Beach Resort Wednesday afternoon! Wish we could schedule a month too like Shelly – maybe in the future!

    Don’t worry so much since you are staying on SMB. You will be leeward of the north to northeast winds

    I will be on North Side, and facing the big breeze, but not to worry. Been vacationing there since 1975, so I know how to fill the hours!

    Again – thanks for the positive thinking. Maybe we’ll have a drive around to the North sound to see the big breeze. I’m packed (almost) and excited since it is now sleeting outside. I guess alittle wind and 80 degrees won’t be so bad!

    Well, you must be just about home by now and it appears as though you arrived just in time for the northwester-which started kicking up on Wed. and Thur and Fri were cold and cloudy. If we’d been on SMB we would have been jumping waves

    We’ll have been here for 4 weeks and sad to say for you those were the only 3 days that the weather was not perfect. Hope you managed to find something to do. We went to the Botanic Garden and the Pirate Caves with the grandkids to keep them occupied for part of the day.

    You’ll have to try Cayman again—couldn’t possibly happen to you 3 times in a row.

    shelly ?

    Hi Shelly – all I can say is thank goodness it was 5 degrees and snowing in Connecticut while we were in Grand Cayman. The weather was not ideal while we were there, but a heck of alot better than home. We keep up a good attitude and had alot of fun! We got home last night and on the way home decided we needed to spend a least a week next year on the island instead of just a few days – so we’ll be back! My hubby wants make alittle money off of our bad luck and sell our vacation days to people who want good weather – we’ll tell them when we are going to be there so they can avoid those days! Think it will work?

    We went to the gardens too (Thursday) and also made our daily trip to the butterfly farm. We did alittle wave jumping at Smith’s cove too. We meet a bunch of great people at the hotel and had a few good meals (Pappagallo’s & the Wharf). Having a car the entire time also made a big difference, especially when the weather was bad.

    Wanted to extend the visit for a day, but couldn’t get the flights changed to today! We definitely learned our lesson that three days is not enough. We’ll be back for a week next time! Enjoy the rest of your stay! Deb

    Hi Deb

    Glad to hear you made the best of it—yes-a week would probably be good. Even if you hit bad weather, it wouldn’t last that long. I agree-it’s always better down here, no matter the weather, than it is at home.

    Did you leave on Sunday? Our son left then too, but his AA flight was delayed about 3 hours and he missed his connection and had to spend the night in Miami-I hope he got home today-haven’t heard from him yet. Of course, the airlines said it was weather related, so no compensation I would guess. Can’t wait to get a full report from him

    Better luck to you next year!

    Shelly:-)

    Yes, we left Sunday via Delta to Atlanta. We heard about alot of problems with people on your sons flight. The huge lines in Atlanta made a few people on our plane miss their connections, but we had an uneventful trip home. It’s not even too bad here – 50 degrees! I’ll take that in January in CT!

    Well I’m unpacked and the wash is done, but my daughter and I are going to Disney for a long weekend on the 17th, so I just have to repack. Maybe the sun will shine on me then! Shelly – have a safe flight home and maybe we’ll run into each other next trip! Thanks – Deb

    Funny that you’re off to Disney next week. Last year I went to Disney for a long weekend with my daughter’s family-got home on Monday and left for 3 weeks in Cayman on thursday—I’m not the greatest traveler, and amazed myself with 2 trips so close together. It was cool when we were in Florida last year, but I had taken enough layers so I didn’t freeze. Actually I thought it was better to do Disney when it was cool-I’ve been there when it’s hot and it really wears you out.

    Have fun with Mickey and Minnie!

    It appears on the map to include a lot of rain in the near future but seasonal averages for the amount are low. What does it look like in the extended for the 15th-22nd? My last trip to the Caymans was also a wash out a it rained for the last 5 days we were there.

    #49589

    It always appears that way. They don’t get much rain this time of year and when they do it only lasts for a few minutes.

    I’m trying not to panic as I look at the 10-day forecast for the week of 5/24/08. It starts with 20% chance of showers and works it way up to 60% by Wednesday. Are we doomed for dreary weather?

    if you check the other topics in weather, you will find that we ALL have seen the weather forecast for almost that exact prediction……..no matter when you go! IF it rains, it is almost always of short duration, and if it should prove longer, many times you can just go to the other side of the island and find sunny skies there! Do NOT worry………nothing you can do about the weather anyway, but I’m sure you will have many beautiful, sunny and warm days if not all!

    Hi, we’re coming in next Tuesday for 8 days. What has the weather REALLY been like and what are they predicting? The weather predictions on the internet aren’t too promising. We want to relax on the beach…any chance? My husband is thinking of cancelling and rescheduling in a few months because he won’t be able to golf…?

    I’m leaving for Grand Cayman this Saturday, Aug. 23. How has the weather been? All I see in the forecast is rain — can I expect any sunny days?? Has the tropical storm been a factor lately? Thanks for any responses!
