The skies cleared within half an hour of my last report. Blue skies were the 
order of the evening as TD2 lost steam east of the islands.


Tridents Vs Zouks is on at the Oval. Tridents are in in strong position at the 
moment.

TD#2 has reached Barbados. Current conditions are cloudy/overcast. Bridgetown 
and the South Coast have now disappeared under what looks like heavy rain from 
this vantage point. We have not seen the thunder storms or high winds as 
forecasted but the CPLt20 match scheduled for Kensington Oval at 4PM maybe 
affected. More reports soon...

with our Doppler showing plenty rain just south of us,Grenada looks to be

It's raining, it's raining and no-one is complaining.  We have waited so long for this.
Hopefully all day...

I can't believe that the tropical wave that we were all looking forward to for some relief in the rain department has passed under us, through us and around us and given us not one drop. Long range our next chance is next Friday.  This is awful - I cannot remember in all the years I have been in Barbados going this long without any rain at all. Everything is looking so wilted and dried up.

Hello from Barbados.  We are currently experiencing a drought.  It really hasn't rained per se for weeks and weeks.  Every day just strong winds and sunshine.  Everything in my garden is looking very sad although I try to put some water on the root systems late in the afternoon. The next 10 day forecast is looking almost the same as we have had. Just sunshine. Here's hoping we do have a very quiet hurricane season with no surprises.
