Please tell me it is not true!! Scheduled to arrive St.Barts 1/26. Every forecast, I mean every forecast says rain, (some days at 50%)

What happened to "it never rains, just a passing shower, etc. !

Sincerely, "feeling like a drowned Rat!

Anyone there now, that can give an honest snapshot of what weather's actually occurring?

Hey, SURFERLADY!  Welcome to the forum.  And don't you cry.  We have been to St. Barth ten or eleven times and are going back next month.  We have been in January, February, March, June, July and August.  We have never had a trip ruined by rain, even though almost every forecast I have ever seen for SBH calls for rain.  Our experience is that there may be a shower that lasts for a few minutes, but it is almost always a short time, followed by sunshine.  Don't worry about the weather.  Your job is to have fun!

General forecast-
 
Forecast high will be 30 C, 86 F. and low about 25 C, 77 F.
Sunrise will occur at 6:46 A.M. and Sunset at 6:01 P.M.

Winds:
Today: South-Southwesterly, light to gentle, 5 to 12 miles per hour.
Tonight through Sunday midday: North-Northeasterly, gentle to moderate, 8 to 18 miles per hour. Higher in gusts up to 22 miles per hour.

Synopsis: A strong surface low pressure area located Northwest of the local region continues to move in Easterly, Northeasterly direction across the Central Atlantic. This will cause the wind to gradually veer from the South-Southwest to a North-Northeasterly direction. Furthermore, relatively dry air aloft is moving across the islands, hence expect fair weather conditions to prevail through the weekend. 

Sea conditions: Seas will be tranquil to moderate, 2 to 4 feet. Marine conditions will remain excellent for boating through the weekend, but are expected to deteriorate by Monday due to North-Northwesterly swells.


Special Features: There are continuous emissions of gases and ash from the Soufriere Hills volcano in Montserrat. According to the latest advisory ash clouds will be staying well South-Southeast of our area.

Outlook until Monday midday: Partly cloudy with no significant precipitation.

Forecaster: Thomas/Girigori.

The next weather forecast will be issued on Saturday at 17:00 A.S.T. (21:00 U.T.C.).

I agree that you shouldn't probably worry about it, there is always rain forecasted and in the 7 years I've been going, we had rain that lasted more than a few minutes only twice. 
 
That being said, there does seem to be a lot of rain, high surf, etc there this year.  The St Jean webcam has not been very sunny a whole lot.  :(

A strong exterior reduced force locality established Northwest of the local district extends to move in Easterly, Northeasterly direction across the Central Atlantic. This will origin the breeze to gradually swerve from the South-Southwest to a North-Northeasterly direction. Furthermore, relatively dry air aloft is moving across the isles, therefore expect equitable climate conditions to prevail through the weekend.
