The French island of Guadeloupe has in the past been in the track of very violent tropical hurricanes, which are most likely to develop between August and October. The temperature and humidity throughout the year in Guadeloupe are very similar to those in other Caribbean islands. Guadeloupe is the more mountainous of the Leeward Islands and on the windward slopes is exposed to the constant and moist northeast trade winds.

The perfect sunny weather in Guadeloupe is mixed with refreshing breezes by the trade winds to the island, making this French Caribbean island a little piece of heaven for your tropical getaway. Guadeloupe’s highest temperature is 92 degrees Fahrenheit, with a low of 54 degrees Fahrenheit. However, it averages temperatures of about 74 degrees Fahrenheit during the winter months and 87 degrees Fahrenheit during the summer.

The seasons of Guadeloupe are not very noticeable, but the wet seasons are between July to November and remains mostly humid for the rest of the year. Unforeseen rain showers can happen any time of the year in Guadeloupe, but for most part, the showers are short lived and give way to sunshine within a few minutes. In the rainforest, the air tends to be much cooler due to plenty of rainfalls. The months of December to June are regarded as the dry season, but the summer is the best time to visit Guadeloupe since it is the low season for tourist arrivals, and the accommodation rates are very low at this time.

The most popular time to visit Guadeloupe is during the winter months of the north, to avoid the hurricane months and to celebrate the holidays. When packing for a trip to Guadeloupe ensure you carry light weight clothing made of linen and cottons and also your umbrellas.

Vacationers can expect beautiful tropical weather in Guadeloupe almost all year long, with average monthly temperatures on the island that are normally constant throughout the year. You, however, should be prepared to enjoy a tropical paradise on this beautiful island, but be aware of surprising weather conditions that may occur.
