    Just so folks know I don't pull this info out of a hat.

    The paper breaks the rainy seasons down as:
    February to May is dry season.
    June to September is the "small rains" season.
    October to January is the rain season.

    A lot of rain showers occur over night and early morning. During the day you may have a passsing shower, it may be "showering" down the beach and sunny on the part of the beach where you are standing.

    I posted this in response in another thread, but thought this was good info for this thread.

    Aruba is a semi-arrid island which receives 21 inches of rain per year.

    Probably this forecast
    http://www.weather.com/outlook/trave...r/tenday/AUA:9
    There may or may not be a shower on any given day but it will not be a long one and most of the day will be sunny and beautiful. weather.com shows the rain icon any time there is a 30% or greater chance of rain.

    Do not worry about rain, when it starts you might not make it under cover before it stops!
