Dominica Climate & Weather
Dominica's tropical climate has plenty of sunshine, humidity and heat all year round; the island has an average year-round temperature of 81F (27C) and the seasons are not very distinct, with little temperature variation. Hot days are interspersed with frequent rain showers, which dampen the intense heat and nourish the island's extensive rainforest. The island is very susceptible to tropical storms and hurricanes, usually between June and November.
Some say the best months in which to visit are February and May, as they're safely out of the hurricane season and experience less rain. They can be very hot and humid, though. Others insist that despite the dangers of hurricanes, the best time to holiday in Dominica is between October and December, when the days are slightly cooler and less humid.
