Hope Town Weather and Climate


Weather and Climate

The weather in Abaco is generally consistent throughout the changing seasons.  The summer months consists of gentle trade winds, but warm temperatures.  It is common for isolated thunderstorms to come and go quickly during the months of May through September.  The winter months are quite comfortable and generally pretty warm, with the exception of cold fronts, which make their way over from Florida.  March is great for sailing, as it is breezy throughout the entire month, and  accompanied by great weather.  The island's climate can be described as “Tropical Marine,” with the temperatures averaging mid 70's in the winter, and mid 80's in the summer.  The climate in Abaco is   definitely an attraction in itself, but it is just an added bonus when considering the spectacular sun, sand, and surf.
