OK: last night we had an early start to the rainfall for Summer 2014. 0.4″ in Southern Bucerias. (Only 0.1″ in Nuevo). This is 2 – 3 weeks earlier than the rainfall recorded here since 2011. (Despite the dog eating the other logbook for the previous years, ahem, the 2010 summary still remains – that was the big one when part of the Nayarit/Jalisco bridge (& many others) were washed out in September.)
This year is an “El Nino” year – and they are already forecasting 5 hurricanes for this side of Mexico. Right now Amanda is huffing and puffing (actually nowhere near us realistically) but – hence the rainfall last night, and the overcast skies today. First thing this morning it smelled so green! And so much cooler and less humidity! This late afternoon and it’s black skies over PV, a good breeze but…
For that certain person who was out doing the rain dance – be careful what you wish for !! Remember our recycling team go out in (almost) all weathers!
Remember: sometimes what you see on various sites are NOT what we are experiencing here – inside Banderas Bay we have our own system – We are so protected by the Sierra Madre mountains! Not tempting fate on this one, but – so far so good.
Weather updates will continue on here – keep watching!
