While Antigua Guatemala prepares for Semana Santa the weather for the last week in Antigua has not been the normal weather. Rain came during last Sunday’s San Bartolomé Procession.

The Bartolomé Procession is considered the largest during lent as part of the build up to Semana Santa in Guatemala. Late afternoon rains caused problems for supporters building carpets or alfombras as part of the Processions events. On the 6th avenue in Antigua Guatemala a large group spent most of the dat building a complex Carpet. Rains came and the supporters had to cover the carpet with plastic to protect it from the rains.

As the Bartolomé Procession made its way through the streets of Antigua, alfombras or carpets are laid before the float passes over the route. Although the rains came the supporters of the Bartolomé Procession continue the procession match through the streets of Antigua.

Monday in Antigua Guatemala saw heavier rains hit this Central American Tourist destination. The afternoon thunderstorm was a surprise as March is more of the dry season then the rainy season. The afternoon thunderstorm lasted a few house with some flooding on the streets of Antigua.

The long range Antigua Guatemala Weather forecast for Holy Week and the official start of Semana Santa indicates a 60% chance of rains again for Antigua Guatemala over the weekend. With Sunday indicating a 80% chance of storms. The week of Semana Santa shows chances of rain with Partly cloudy conditions through the week of Semana Santa in Antigua Guatemala.
