The Bahamas at a Glance
Isles of Perpetual June
The Bahamas islands enjoy what is known as a tropical maritime climate, meaning that the weather is influenced by the sea. There are two seasons: wet and dry.
The wet season takes place between the summer months of June to October, when the atmospheric condition is not stable, causing what is known as tropical disturbances. The region experiences the most rainfall during those months, and it can get hot and ‘muggy’.
The dry season takes place in the winter, from November to May, and the days are comfortably cooler than the summer months. Nevertheless, there is little difference in temperature between the two seasons. Aside from the amount of rainfall, the islands are typically enjoyable throughout the year.
Although the Bahamas is located in the “hurricane belt”, which covers most of the Caribbean, many storms bypass the islands. Hurricane season is from June to November.
