    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

    Weather forecast for the ABC islands valid until Monday evening 18:00 AST, August 17, 2009.
    Last updated: Sunday August 16, 2009, 17:00 AST (21:00 UTC).


    Weather:
    This evening till Monday morning: Partly cloudy, briefly mostly cloudy with a chance of a local shower.


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

    Sunrise will occur at 6:24 A.M. and Sunset at 6:54 P.M.

    Easterly and gentle to moderate; force 3 to 4 (12 to 30 km/h, 7 to 16 knots). Mainly during the day fresh to possibly strong in gusts, force 5 to 6 (31 to 50 km/h, 17 to 27 knots).

    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)
