This time of year, as the Caribbean continues to warm up under the intense summer sun, atmospheric instability results in squalls that pass over the island once or twice a day (and also at night). The squalls only last about thirty minutes and are usually followed by sunshine and blue skies. For some reason these waves of short-lived, mini-storms occur primarily in the month of July. They make for great nap weather and the parched plants love the rainwater they bring!
