Barbados is usually warm and sunny throughout the year. The average temperature during the day is usually in the 85F range. At night you can expect the temperatures to reduce the substantially cooler levels.

Despite the fact that Barbados is mostly sunny, the northeast tradewinds which criss-cross the location, ensure that it does not become unbearably hot for its visitors as well as its inhabitants.

The dry season exists from January through to June; when the rains come they often do so in quick short showers. Tropical rainstorms however, tend to occur in hurricane season which comes in between the months of June to October.
