Weather in Cancun

Weather in Cancun

Wow, just checked the forecast and it's 80% chance of rain and thunder and a few days were 100%! We will be in Cancun May 12-19. Then I checked this forecast and it looks much better.


Looks like the actual rain measurement isn't much, so is that promising? I'm pretty bummed to be honest. :( Someone tell me some good news. Haha.

We're in Cancun now. I worried about the same thing because weather for this week said 80-90% chance of storms. It hasn't rained at all--not even a sprinkle. There have been a few clouds, but mostly sun. Bring sunscreen. We're getting nice and tan. Weather is fabulous.

"It hasn't rained at all--not even a sprinkle"

Always what can happen. Which is why you should never cancel unless something is for sure.

We just arrived 3pm local time and its been sprinkling and overcast. However, there is a lot of lightning and thunder. Hoping it gets it out of its system and we get some sun for our first full day!

It's the big picture you need to look at. Check the NOAA website; caribbean satellites, etc. Tropical Storm activity will bring 100% rain. Right now according to NOAA everything is fine in the caribbean except for a trough heading north--Low pressure will develop along the trough W of Florida on

Mon and move NW, moving inland over the SE United States by

midweek. Showers and thunderstorms will affect the Gulf waters

near and E of the low.

I was there from the 6-12th every day of the forecast on the weather app showed the dark thunder cloud & everyday was beautiful & sunny (except the end of yesterday it rained as we were going to the airport)
