7-Day Forecast for Antigua and Barbuda

3 10 2014

Here is my first 7-Day forecast for Antigua in over a year. It was postponed due to my pursuit of advance studies in climate and society. However, I am back, and from here on in, the forecast will be issued (for now) twice weekly – Mondays and Fridays.


Mostly fair and hazy skies will take place for the weekend. The chance of showers is near 0%. This is excellent weather for outdoor activities but very miserable weather for the agricultural community and water resource managers among others. It is very unusual for October, the wettest month of the year to be having this many consecutive dry days. However, the same atmospheric conditions suppressing the hurricane season also cause below normal rainfall.

The rest of the forecast calls for a moderate chance of showers, day or night.  Notwithstanding, these days will be fairly dry as not more than one mm is anticipated for each day.

Seas are going to remain excellent for sea bathing, power boating and most marine activities but perhaps less than ideal for sailing. Waves will be less than 1.2 m or less than 4 feet while the winds are going to be moderate through Sunday and light thereafter. Light winds will generally allow for a bit warmer days and cooler night, particularly on Tue, Wed and Thu next week.

Enjoy the weather and have a great weekend!
