 Barbados Weather & Climate


The weather in  Barbados is sunnier and drier than that of many other islands in the Caribbean. On the southern edge of the Atlantic hurricane belt, Barbados is not as arid as Aruba and has a slightly higher chance of hurricane contact, but it is far from the dense forests of Puerto Rico or the misty jungles of the Dominican Republic.


Hurricanes, however, usually miss Barbados, but tropical rain storms are prevalent. The best season for visit Barbados is winter or spring.


Winter in Barbados is like May in much of the North American Southeast, with balmy temperatures. Most people visit in the winter, getting away from the freezing temperatures of their home towns in North America.

The weather in Barbados It is generally warm and sunny all year round with an average daytime high of 75 - 85 F. The nights are usually slightly cooler.
The prevailing northeast trade winds blow steadily so that although it is bright and sunny, it is not unbearably hot.
The rain usually comes in quick showers. The dry season lasts from January to June. 

During the summer months June to October Barbados does experience an increase in rainfall. Barbados' tropical climate must be its leading attraction - hot and sunny all year round with enough rain to ensure that the island also retains beautiful plant life and an abundance of flowers

The weather is at its best during the high season - mid-December to mid-April with rainfall low and the heat tempered by cooling trade winds. Central Barbados has a rolling terrain of limestone hills and amid this lush scenery are fascinating survivors of the colonial past. Summer brings slightly hotter weather, and in summer and fall there's a greater chance of rain. The dry season spans from December to June, and during the so-called wet season July to November some brief rain showers are likely.
