The weather will vary depending upon where you are located on the island. Typically the winward side get more wet weather than the leeward side. This is because the mositure laden clouds come from the northwest, hit the mountains on the island and then drop the moisture as rain. So on the other side of the mountain it would stay dryer. This process reverses when the clouds come from the south east and the leeward side gets the rain while the winward does not.

In other words the north and east shores will typically have more wet weather while the south and west have more dry weather. If it is raining one place on the island then it will likely not be raining another place.
