    Default Punta Cana-Current Weather

    here we go with the actual weather reports form Punta Cana.
    while we passed today,
    tuesday september 9th 2008,
    with high 80'sF/32C, high humidity
    very light winds from the SE,
    few clouds been around.
    -------
    right now,
    tuesday eve 8PM,
    still 82F/28C, 80% humidity,
    some clouds over the coastline will in some parts provide again some nighttime showers, short ones, no windy ones,
    breeze is very light from the SE, not measureable.
    the clouds still passing by the last 2 days are a rain area which been NNE of Venezuela a few days ago but got sucked upwards to the NNW by the tremendeous powers of Ike, so for the next 2 days i expect the same weather on the east.
    high temps, high humidity, partly cloudy,
    few short showers in some areas,
    mostly caribbean sunshine.
    i expect the wind to stay very low, max of 5-7 knots til the weekend,
    then that stuff will be passed by.
    for the rainfalls in santo domingo our 'great' Marina de Guerra prohibited yesterday on one of the calmest september days i ever faced here on the east all watersport activities, time that our own "people in charge" learn about the differences of climate/weather/Sea conditions in the different areas of our huge Island. i can not count how often every year we do not work offshore because Sea conditions are dangerous, but we would be allowed to do so, because it's sunny in the Capital City in the morning, so the weather on the Island is just fine.
    a lot to improve.
    even within the 50 kilometer Punta Cana Beach Strip we have areas which are dangerous for rip tides aso on some days while most sections of the area are just perfect for a Fun in the Sun Day.
    i hope one day we get authorities with knowledge about conditions present at 'the area' and the power to make decisions the right way, locally, right where needed.
    have a great eve everybody
    cheers from the East

    10:20PM the former described little 'extra tail' arrived with his last fight.
    temps raised by 3-4F, even the breze feels nice cool on the skin,
    clouds coming in from the Mona Channel, but then the wind turned one moment to an other coming from the north east, running a 10-12 knots steadily, gusts of 18-20 knots, rain set in a 15-20 minutes later, but not strong. right now, 40 minutes after the first drops felt down it starts to stop, will be over fast.

    the rain came down last night,
    so everything is ready for a beautiful beachday on the east.
    wednesday morning 9:30AM
    81F/27C
    sunny, humidity 85%
    few clouds around, most time of the day will stay sunny
    wind is dead
    inshore sea flat like a lagoon, no waves around,
    the water from last night is now located near Samana.
    there is still more rain located in front of Punta Cana,
    but no fast movements, doesn't look like a windy formation,
    so i would expect a shower or two partly over the area during afternoon
    and some more tonight.

    PC passed the whole day sunny and dry,
    high 80's, high humidity, no winds,
    inshore and offshore waters flat.
    6:30PM
    81F/27C, 84% humidity,
    very low wind from the southeast,
    a rare constellation, because i am watching the whole day with my own eyes not so friendly looking colors in a dark sky over the far Northeast offshore waters, but we are here in the clear with a light breeze from the southeast.
    i don't trust the quiet calm eve hours.
    around the Northeastern caribbean we have heavy rainloads all around, around Puerto Rico, around PC, but we stayed completely dry today, no drop of rain felt down in PC. on the sat shots i can not really see a accurate movement towards any side, maybe they just rain down over those far open waters.
    for tomorrow i expect again a quiet morning with a light breeze,
    but by the look of the skies over the Ocean in front of my house right on the beach, i do not believe that the breeze stays from the southern or SE side, i expect a change towards NorthEast tomorrow or tomorow night, that will change fast and like always unexpected, i think we will get some of that rain over there in within the next 24-48 hrs. wind will not be much strong, just blowing up with some higher gusts while showering, back down afterwards right away.
    will be back for a update thursday morning

    PC still completely calm,
    the clouds around do actually not promise rain,
    no winds in vicinity.
    12:20AM still on 80F, not so bad for the outlookfor tomorrow.
    i await a sunny hot day and no remarcable rains.
    the cloud formations been watched on sat shots and even within eyes visibility since wednesday morning here are mostly gone,
    looks like they loaded their rain down far offshore our coastline,
    good like that.
    actually i would say we can take a nap and nothing coming upfrom the eastern side of the Atlantic.
    i hope all the guys on the Texas Gulf coast are still there for the weekend.
    take care over there,
    we are nice and quiet over here.

    thursday sep 11th 12:15PM
    86F/30C
    perfectly sunny, very hot since early on,
    wind a light breeze of just 5 knots,
    nothing in vicinity which could bothere a perfect caribbean sunshine.
    looks like the weather frogs get bored before Ike is gone,
    they putted the number Invest91 on the cloud formation north of puerto rico,
    it a rainfront, it is nearly stationary,
    moving on slow 2mphr northwards.
    nothing to worry about.
    happy travel

    Friday morning
    WEEEEKEND!!!!!!
    11AM
    86F/30C,
    not a single cloud around,
    a nearly non existent breeze from the ENE,
    humidity fels a bit higher than yesterday,
    it will all stay dry for a caribbean sunshine weekend.
    Dave,
    welcome to the bord.
    about the november weather we will write in November.
    basically the end of the year provides it's showers once in a while,
    winds 10-12 knots, enough sun for a caribbean Tan, Sea usually on 5-6 ft offshore, a bit 'moving' on the inshore depending at which area exactly someon stays. that would be a ususal november day without anything like a tropical storm or such nearby.
    happy travel
    Mike

    it's weekend,
    no changes in the perfect caribbean sunshine wather we have here since days, so i missed out on a tdays morning report and spent the day with the family on the beach.
    we had highest 80's, no clouds, humidity in the medium, i would say high 70's% somewhere there but did not check a instrument today, 'cause that's not necessary, weather could not be more perfect for a beach day than today.
    wind nearly dead, inshore and offshore waters are flat.
    no changes expected soon,
    have a pleasant stay
    Mike
