Paloma has been downgraded to tropical storm and it will continue to weaken as it departs from Cuba today. Meanwhile, a storm will move through the interior West before bringing messy weather to the Plains early in the week. Paloma entered Cuba as Category Four hurricane. However, very quickly it weakened to a Category 1 hurricane thanks to mountainous terrain. When the storm made a landfall in Santa Cruz del Sur, Camaguey, it tied the record for second strongest Atlantic Hurricane in November. The strongest was Hurricane Lenny in 1999. Today also marks the anniversary for a devastating hurricane with wind gusts of 200 that plowed into Cuba in 1932. The monstrous storm killed nearly 3,000 people. A couple more inches of rain will be possible over eastern Cuba as Paloma departs and moves northeast toward the Bahamas. Life-threatening flash floods and mud slides could still impact Cuba today with the additional rainfall. Nuevitas, Cuba, has received 3.57 inches of rain into early this morning from the dangerous hurricane, and even higher amounts fell in the higher elevations. Destructive winds have also been blasting Cuba. Paloma will be steered to the northeast over cooler water north of Cuba as wind shear strengthens. Both of these factors will lead to more weakening. By Monday morning, the system is expected to weaken to tropical storm strength about half way between Cuba and the central Bahamas.

The storm has weakened from Category Four to One after making a landfall and it is expected to continue losing speed as it crosses the island. Tens of thousands of people have been evacuated from low-lying areas in the south and the country has been lashed by heavy rain and strong winds. Initial reports from Havana said that there has been some interruption of electrical and phone services. Due to well-trained and experienced civil defence in Cuba, there has been no reports of any human casualties. Paloma is the third hurricane and fourth storm that has hit Cuba this season. The previous hurricanes (Gustav and Ike) as well as tropical storm Fay have caused billions of dollars worth of damage, destroying thousands of homes.

Tourist Advisory
The weather is hot and sunny all year round. April and May though are especially good. Then you have the most sunny days, low rainfall, low humidity, hot, but not too hot and no hurricanes. In addition, and rather perversely, generally this time, except the Easter week, is low season. So, you should see that flights, hotels, package holidays and car rentals are at the lowest rates but with relatively high availability. Please note some Hotels and Car models are popular all year so bookings are advisable as far in advance as possible.
