♪ Stormy weather ♪

Forecast for next week isn't good. Tropical storm Ileana or Hector or something. We don't mind swimming during some drizzling but other activities might be limited. Any alternative activity suggestions? I have 2 game-for-anything kids, ages 5 & 6.

Those are storms in the Pacific Ocean. Playa del Carmen is on the Caribbean.

This forecasting tool correctly predicted the current precipitation that hit Playa today. http://www.nco.ncep.noaa.gov/pmb/nwp...p_m_loop.shtml

If it continues to be accurate the next five days will be perfect.

Forget your umbrella, but don't forget your sun block.

Whew!

Whew! Thanks, Michael.

We can live with 20% chance of rain. Still, any dry ideas?

In the Yucatan it does not rain like it does in Southern Cali. Unless there is actually a tropical depression (or hurricane) the rain that you might get includes a hot sunny day and with a 20-40 minute down pour to cool you off.

Being the rainy season means you can expect mixed weather (sun/clouds).

Most of the time this means it's hotter, more humid and we have a lot more cloud around than other times of the year. There are occasional heavy showers/lightening storms and spots of rain which are often welcome to break the heat. They rarely last long and everything dries off very quickly.

But we still have plenty of dry sunny days and quality time on the beach. Of course the water is very warm too

No, you need to embeed the idea in the middle of the registration process. Instead of just clicking a "I agree" button, they should type manually: "I understand that is nicer to use the search tool before... bla bla bla", "I take notice that a lot of the oldies will answer crazy things if I ask about the weather"... kind of thingy.
