Looks like skies will stay cloudy on New Year's Eve and New Year's Day. The chance of rain today is better than even money.
So, if you were to head to a beach this weekend, chances are it wouldn't be so beautiful.
But thanks to Chase and Maria, a couple who toured the island with their video camera, you can sit here and visit three beaches, Coral Bay and Miss Lucy's. Their user name at YouTube is Marchasia. It appears they uploaded these videos just a day or two ago – well before the rains and the heavy surf began.
