Haiti Climate & Weather

Haiti Climate and Weather


Haiti enjoys a tropical climate and the weather is generally hot and humid, with sultry, warm nights. Rainfall is quite variable region to region but two rainy seasons can be identified: April to June, and October to November. There are often severe storms during the hurricane season, between June and October, when there is the risk of flooding and hurricanes. Haiti is mountainous and weather varies according to altitude, with the hilly regions always a bit cooler than the coast. The mountains can get cold at night so no matter what time of year you explore these areas be sure to have some warm clothes. The seasons are not particularly distinct but the best time to travel to Haiti is between November and March so as to avoid the rainy periods. Between November and March, which is technically winter in Haiti, daytime temperatures range from 70°F to 80°F (23°C to 32°C) and nights are cooler at 60°F to 70°F (15°C to 27°C). In the summer months it is significantly hotter. Partly due to its problem with deforestation, Haiti can experience extremes of weather, particularly battling with flooding but also occasionally with severe droughts.
