Caleta 07:30

A clear sky with the exception of some early morning haze.

Temp 18 C

Wind 3/5 MPH

Visibility  Fair

Humidity 60%

Sea 2/4 Ft swell.












Forecast:- a mix of sun and cloud with the chance of rain.

It is now 09:50 Temp reached 20 C, haze is burning off nicely, it is hard to sea where the rain is going to come from, although the wind is forecast to move Easterly then S/Westerly before returning N/easterly early evening so I suppose any thing can happen, but at this moment there is no wind whatsoever.

No where near, more of a nuisance than any thing else, it seemed to get everything wet, then as it started to dry it would rain again ::)

Strange place Antigua, I was there last Wednesday and it was trying valiantly to rain, I think its because its sandwiched between two lots of hills, I do not know about sun shining on the righteous it is more likely The Devil looking after his own.
