Caribbean Climate Outlook Newsletter January to March 2017 – Caribbean Climate Outlook Forum (CARICOF), Dec. 2016

Summary:  January to March 2017: We are entering the driest part of the year (except coastal Guianas). This means above-normal to normal forecast rainfall from the Leeward Is. southward may delay the buildup of usual dry season impacts on water availability, except in areas already in drought (e.g. Cayman and Tobago). Apart from a small chance in the Guianas, there is virtually no flash flood potential in this season. Finally, with generally lower humidity and breezy conditions, and with no heat waves on forecast, we expect to feel comfortable.
