It totally varies. But we had something like 47 nortes??? starting in November and ending in March this last season. Which is a huge amount more than normal. There is simply no way to predict them. You could get a week of perfect weather -- indeed, my parents were here for 3 weeks in December two years ago and not a single norte -- or you might hit a rough patch with some wind and a bit of rain.

if anybody can predict the weather, could you lay down some bucks on roulette for me in Vegas?

I truly do not understand, why ask 5 months in advance what the weather MIGHT be.

It might rain today (I can hope) and if it does, it will spoil somebody's vacation.

We go every year in December. I always take a couple of leggings and a light sweater for the evening just in case. If it is too cool to lay out rent a car and go to the wild side of the island. That is what we do.

I don't see anything wrong with you being excited about your trip and wanting to know about Nortes. That type of weather, though unpredictable, is seasonal. Nortes are fronts that result from cold fronts passing down from the North American continent. They are really usually moving out of the NNE, but can be directly out of the North. 2010 the entire month of January was just about one big Norte. However that does not mean that there will be any Nortes this Jan.. Accu-weather has great information on frontal systems moving across the USA. Whe your trip gets close you can follow this systems and with a weather map it is very easy to see the systems moving towards the island (if any). My facebook page also has daily weather and port conditions, including hurricane and winter storm information.
