Sahara Dust isn't anyting new. We had that while we were there in May and most every year we're there.

To bad it does not hang around until October. Hurricanes hard to form with dust in the air.

It appears in this SAL loop that the Sahara Dust moves south of SXM on Sunday?

Ok, I didn't realize it had been dry here, as the foliage looks fairly green..

When we were there it rained just about every night while asleep or first thing in the morning. Can't say it's been too dry.

Yep, here too. Not sure I've seen this much heavy rain in all my trips. It's poured several times this week.

Linda--I remember one trip a few years ago, that it POURED probably about 4 days in a row.

Anyone know what the forecast is for tomorrow?

Sunshine with mixed clouds. 17% chance of precipitation.
