And here is latest Tropical Weather Outlook from NHC at 2pm EDT:

"An area of low pressure is located over the southern Gulf of Mexico just north of the Yucatan Peninsula. This system and a broad trough of low pressure over the western Gulf of Mexico are producing a large area of disorganized showers and thunderstorms extending from the northwestern Caribbean Sea northward over the eastern Gulf of Mexico. Upper-level winds are expected to be only marginally conducive for development while this system moves northward toward the northern Gulf Coast during the next couple of days. Regardless of tropical cyclone formation, this disturbance is likely to produce locally heavy rainfall over portions of the northern Gulf Coast and southeastern United States during the next few days. The Air Force Reserve reconnaissance aircraft that was scheduled for today was canceled, but another mission is scheduled for tomorrow, if necessary. For additional information on this system, see High Seas Forecasts issued by the National Weather Service and products from your local National Weather Service office.
* Formation chance through 48 hours...low...30 percent
* Formation chance through 5 days...low...30 percent"

If the 10-day weather forecast on wunderground.com can be trusted at all (probably not!) we may be coming into a rainier period here. But we'll see. We had a major deluge last night, but it was short-lived. I wondered what all the tourists on La Quinta did when it started pouring in sheets. I guess the bars do a good business then -- and the many waiting taxis finally feel some love.

Has rained everyday since Sunday. We walked into Plank just before 10pm and the skies let loose for awhile! At Xpu ha yesterday morning it had poured for awhile as the standing water was everywhere, but the beach was incredible! Almost as good as ever. Water was beautiful too!

X marks the spot!

This is probably the worst weather for any one week in the past year .
We needed some rain but I am not sure that we needed this much rain.

The port was closed down yesterday at noon and might be closed today.

Yes, last 3 days have sucked. Sun-wed it was spotty. Looking at the sattelite it reminds us of Wilma and how it grew to our south very quickly. Doesn't look like we will see much sun through the weekend.

Ideas

We've been here since Wednesday and that first day was the only one with sun. We are staying right in town off of 5th in Luna Encantada. My boys are 5 and 9 and I would appreciate any advice on what to do in all this rain. We've sucked it up and played in the rain in the ocean but my wife didn't really have fun with that. Thanks for any advice.

A planetarium was scheduled to open this month. Maybe your hotel staff can help with hours, etc.

PS: Please be careful about using the beach in stormy weather. Two girls were struck by lightening recently, one fatally.

bo4, did you bring any games with you? WahWah's (beach between Juarez and Calle 2) has a HUGE palapa and covered area, yet you are still on the beach. You can park at some protected tables and play games, and/or the boys can build sand castles in the protected area. You still have access to great food and drinks, and at least a view of the ocean. When the rain stops, you can run outside and play, and when it kicks back up, you easily move under the palapa. We don't have kids with us, but it is our go-to place to ride out the rain.

Bad timing

I find it really hard to believe that the atmosphere could possibly hold this much rain. I'm pretty sure someone here pissed off some Myan god but since the rain came when we arrived and it's going when we leave on Tuesday, I can only assume it's all my fault. We're riding out the rain as best we can but this can't be typical for down here right? We were used to a little shower here and there but this all day rain is crazy right?

It's definitely typical for this time of year.
September and October - - huge opportunity for days on end rain.
We were saved this past September regarding rain. Just super hot and humid.
