Barbados weather it's almost perfect all year
Sometimes visitors seem a bit disappointed when it
rains... I know it is hard to believe that with such
perfect weather there is rain on the island... but there
is. But even if it rains while you are here on vacation
perfect weather most days is guaranteed.
The months of June thru November are the wettest months of the year although it can rain at anytime. But don’t despair these showers usually last a few hours or less and the temperatures remain warm and nice through out. You will also find that from January to June usually has the least amount of rain hence this period is regarded as the dry season.
Although some of the islands natural vegetation maybe a little dry the island still remains a tropical garden with many exotic flower gardens in full bloom. Officially the hurricane season runs from June to October 31st; however the busiest part of the season tends to be around late August thru September. As mention elsewhere on this site Barbados is the most easterly of all the Caribbean islands.
This places the island way out into the Atlantic Ocean, the theory is that this geographical position some how helps the hurricanes to avoid our island paradise. This theory is strengthened by the fact that the last hurricane to devastate Barbados was Hurricane Janet way back in September 1955. That was 53 years ago and the other recorded direct hits to the island by hurricanes were a long time ago the dates of these hurricanes are 1898 and 1931.
Now lets be clear these statistics does not make the island immune to hurricanes... So if you are planning your ideal tropical get-a-way in this Barbados weather just remember you’ll have to take the usual precautions. These include making sure that the accommodation you choose have an emergency plan....
