    Weather/Tropical Storm Ana

    Any idea what the weather is like currently on the island, seeing that a tropical storm is brewing?

    The hurricanes are still in the mid-Atlantic and are expected to stay well north of Aruba.

    Today the weather is fine and so is the forecast

    Monday midday through the evening: Mainly partly cloudy.
    Forecast high will be 33C and forecast low, 26C.

    Synopsis:
    A persistent Easterly moist airflow will still induce the development of cloudiness and possible shower activity across the region during the next 24 hours.

    I don't think you would want to be heading to Bermuda next weekend.

    Had a 1 minute shower today - besides that has been sunny and pleasant.
    This time of year the winds are a little slower - so it's hotter - but no problems
    at all.

    Just bring the bug spray - they are starting up again (esp. w/ the slower wind)
