Meteorologist Dale Destin is predicting a dry spell for Antigua and Barbuda with regard to meaningful rainfall over the next two months.
He was unable to give an explanation as to what could be causing this period of low rainfall but supports his prediction with the weather data.
Destin says the year began very well with good rainfall, but this tapered off at the end of March.
He says the MET Office has recorded only about an inch of rainfall within a two-month period.
Destin says the outlook looks grim, since the Caribbean is expecting lower than normal rainfall for the next month and a half.
Destin says it will take a considerable amount of rainfall to ease the current dry spell; but he adds that things will improve going past July.
As a result of the current moderate drought conditions, many water catchments have dried up, including the country’s main water source, Pots Work Dam.

In 2020 we still have to deal with no water in our taps, but when we’re referred to as a “third word country” we get offended…SMH. It’s not a novel problem & many other countries have solved it. It’s time we stop talking & actually implement effective lasting solutions.
We are suppose to have the smartest leader in the Caribbean. The Bahamas does not depend on dams and rainfall for their water supply. Maybe our PM should speak with the Bahamian PM.
Imagine we are still depending on pond water like VC Bird time.
Didnt werl boss determine he would solve the water problems in 28 days or something along those line?
