    Should I be concerned?

    I just checked the weather and it looks like there is high humidity and scattered showers all week. What is that all about? Will we still be able to do outside activities, or are the scattered showers going to prohibit that?

    Thanks

    ---- Never had high humidity in my many trips to Aruba as usually a nice breeze to cool you off. They(???) are always calling for scattered showers. Some are so short you can just stay under your beach hut as they go by. Once went for beer and was told by wife it rained.
    Once at a beach restaurant/bar it rained so just took plate over to bar which was under cover. Aruba is a desert type island so rain happens but not that much.

    that is the standard forecast for aruba
    yup the huidity is always high, 'cept we rarely notice it due to the comfortable trade winds.
    also too, ignore the rain drops on the forecast
    the showers are typically on the forecast
    rarely is there a washout
    a shower here and there, but usually nothing to ruin your day

    lack of tradewinds is more of a concern.........when there is no wind, the air is very hot and humid

    Whew. Thanks everyone, that really sets my mind at ease.
    Here is the news I have heard this last week:
    Shark spotted. (leaves everyone alone)
    Oil slick on beach. (not on my beach)
    Trade winds stopped. (restarted)
    High humidity. (always)
    Rainy forecast. (always)

    Sometimes there can be too much info. I am just a bit high strung I think.

    Two years ago it rained on us everyday, but not once after 9am and before sunset. And it's always hot 'n humid; you just don't know it unless the trade winds stop. The only time I've experienced a prolonged lack of trade winds (and higher heat/humidity index's) was when a hurricane went thru the northern Caribbean and the trade winds were gone for several days. It still beat the heck out of being at home!!!
    Aruba where the toughest question each day is "where to dine tonight".

    I am here now and it is HOT. A lot of the locals even mention it. In spite of that, we are having a blast.
