The trade winds that blow almost continually throughout The Islands of The Bahamas give the islands a warm, agreeable climate which hardly varies all year round.This is weather that you can quickly get used to with January lows averaging a comfortable 72 degrees Fahrenheit and summer highs at around 80–90, with a gentle dip at night of just 5 to 7 degrees. The result? A climate where you can have fun anytime of the day, any season.
The climate in The Bahamas consists of just two seasons.
Summer is from May through October when rainfall is higher. The Summer months are ideal for a vacation too. The ocean is warm and most of the time it's calm. It's an ideal time for snorkeling and swimming.
Winter is from November through April and are pleasantly warm. Cold fronts sometimes bring strong winds from the north, a bit of rain, and lower temperatures and humidity, particularly from mid-January through February.
Rain mainly comes in short-lived, intense showers accompanied by strong winds which are then followed by clear skies. Even paradise needs to cool off with a little rain now and then. May and June are the months with most rain. During wetter months the weather forecasts consistently say there is a 30% chance of rain almost every day, but don't be alarmed as squalls and thundershowers pass through quickly, so the rain never has to ruin your day.... and it often doesn't rain.
The official hurricane season runs from June to November. But the probability of hurricanes striking the Bahamas in June, July and August is relatively low. All hurricanes we have gone through from 1997 to 2010 occurred in September/October, with one in early November
Enjoy your island's weather. The sun shines about 340 days out of 365...
You can't expect the Bahamas climate to get any better than that!
