Climate and Average Weather in Cuba
In Cuba the local climate is tropical with temperatures that are between 25 and 32 degrees Celsius (77-87.8 degrees Fahrenheit) during the day throughout the year. Because there is almost always a reasonable amount of wind, the tropical temperature is tempered a bit. In the period from November to May it can even feel quite fresh in the evening, which is quite rare for a tropical climate.
In general there is a drier season from November to April, and a rainier season from May to October. However even during the rainy season, the sun shines for much of the day and 6 to 9 sunshine hours are recorded daily. Most of the time within half an hour you see a dark grey sky break open, after which a clear blue sky remains.
If you look at the temperatures and amounts of rain, you can say December until April is the best travel time. It is not too hot and the chance of rain is considerably smaller in this drier period than in the wetter period. Another great period are the months of July and August. These months fall into the monsoon period, but during these two months there will be less rain than during the months of May, June, September and October.
The country is prone to frequent hurricanes, these are most common in September and October.
