Climate and Weather of Guadeloupe

Guadeloupe consists of several inhabited and uninhabited islands and experiences a tropical monsoon climate. The location in the Caribbean ensures that the weather is almost constantly influenced by the eastern trade wind, which brings rain from the east, making the western side of the islands somewhat drier.

The temperature in Guadeloupe remains fairly constant throughout the year, with the warmest month being August with an average temperature of 31°C and the coolest month being December with an average temperature of 29°C.

Guadeloupe is among the wetter areas within the region, with even the driest years still receiving around 1000 mm of precipitation, and the wettest years receiving up to 2500 mm of rainfall. While the first few months of the year are drier, there is no truly dry season, and precipitation increases from April onwards, with September, October, and November being the wettest months.

The hurricane season in Guadeloupe begins in early July and ends in early December. While the islands are not hit by a hurricane every year, they are vulnerable to this natural hazard due to their location.

The best time to travel to Guadeloupe is from January to March, as these are the driest months of the year. December and April can also be good times for a vacation, but the weather may be less stable.
