St Vincent and the Grenadines enjoys a hot, tropical climate year round and the average hours of sunshine are fairly consistent for each month, with temperatures reaching average highs of around 30°C. However, the climate does vary between the Grenadines as the southern islands are slightly drier and warmer than those in the north.

The driest months are usually February to April. In June to November, the rain usually falls in brief, very heavy showers and it is also the official hurricane season; although the islands' southerly location means that hurricanes rarely have a major impact. This period does also see tropical storms in the region.
