WARM AND BREEZY
Antigua and Barbuda is warm all year round with soothing south-easterly breezes. Temperatures do not vary that much throughout the year – they are generally between 24 and 30 degrees in the daytime. The coolest night time temperatures can drop to as low as 20 degrees which can feel very cool and in the summer can be as hot as 27 degrees.
If you check the weather forecast regularly you will see that the forecast is often for cloud and rain. This is usually fluffy clouds which pass through quickly. It does rain and for most of the year the rain is short bursts of tropical rain which are over in 10 minutes. If a tropical wave is passing through during the hurricane season, this can last on and off for a few days. The worst months for heavy rain are historically October, November and December.
The hurricane season is June 1st to November 31st, that said the highest risk months are Mid august to Mid October. The last hurricane to hit Antigua directly was in 1999 and in 50 years there have been only 6 direct hits.
