    Uncharacteristic Weather for Aruba

    The last week and a half has been quite rainy from what I've been hearing. The kids arrived at the airport on Friday and it took almost a full hour to get to Costa Linda due to roadway washouts. I usually take weeks 38 and 39 most years but I guessed I lucked out skipping this year. In years past I have experienced the lack of wind when there are hurricanes to the north but never monsoon type rainfall. I never experienced this type of weather in years past.

    Looks like there's good weather waiting for everyone! Hope the worst of the rainy spell is over! I too love looking at the Bucuti webcam -- we had such an incredibly wonderful time there in '07!

    Although yesterday we did have some rain and one good thunder/downpour the day was not a complete wash out. Today looks promising and sun is out and the roads have been drying out which I think I should be doing after a long weekend.

    Sorry to post under the incorrect thread. The people at the Costa Linda told the kids it has pretty much rained the last 10 days. Would it seem there may be a climate change? Has anyone had the experience of this type of weather? It has always been steady sunshine in years past, it seems uncharacteristic for Aruban weather.

    Exclamation Blame if on La Niņa

    Increased rainfall is attributed to La Niņa

    According to the
    Meteorological service of the Netherlands Antilles and Aruba
    http://www.weather.an/forecast/sf.asp
    " The moderate El Niņo phase which dominated the weather over our islands during especially the second half of 2009 and the first quarter of 2010 is now history. It was the main reason of the below average rainfall observed during the 2009 rainy season (-74%) in the ABC [Aruba, Bonaire, Curacao] Islands. In fact, with so little rain, the rainy season in these islands was uneventful. Even the SSS [St. Maarten, St. Eustatius, Saba] Islands, which should have received average rainfall during the second half of 2009, received less than that.

    Sea Surface Temperatures (SST) in the tropical Pacific Ocean have decreased in the meantime (August 2010) to below average values and that has already lead to above average values of rainfall in the ABC Islands. In the Atlantic Ocean and the Caribbean Sea, the sea surface temperatures are already at above average levels [La Niņa]and the outlook is for these higher than normal temperatures to persist throughout the remainder of 2010. This is forecast to result in a good chance of significant rainfall for both the ABC and the SSS islands during the second half of 2010, including the upcoming rainy season (October-December).
    Last updated: August 20, 2010."

    Our family was on the island for 12 nights in December (rainy season) 2007 which was a La Niņa year. We received rain every single day, but fortunate had no days which were total wash outs.

    Last year, during the same rainy season month but during El Ni
    ņo, we received no significant rain over a 10 night period.

    With a current heat index of 96 F., today looks extremely nice!
