Puerto Rico's Weather & Climate

Puerto Rico (USA) is made up mostly of mountains with a coastal plain belt in the north. The mountains jut out to the sea on the west coast, there are sandy beaches along most coastal areas. It is cooler than many other Caribbean islands due to the northeast trade winds, heavy precipitation, and altitude of most of the island. The trade winds also bring in showers from the Atlantic and make the northern coast of Puerto Rico wetter than the south.

Puerto Rico is fairly constant of mountain breezes and hot sunny days and the organically rain   the temperatures in and climate is fairly stable year-round, with an average temperature of 76 degrees Fahrenheit (24 degrees Celsius).
There is no significant difference between the wet or dry season, however August is said to be the wettest month.

Puerto Rico like most other Caribbean Island lie in the hurricane belt, and the official hurricane season runs from June 1 to Nov. 30, with August and September being the peak months. However, the Caribbean region is more vast than most people think, and the chances of any single island being hit directly by a hurricane are very slim.
