Weather

For the most current weather conditions, click here. Note: The summertime rainy season is here. Don’t let those precipitation numbers fool you: it won’t rain everywhere or every day, but always be prepared for a sudden downburst of sometimes severe weather. Also heat can be dangerous–stay hydrated, take breaks, and wear your sunscreen.
