july squalls

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!
