The Abaco Islands have a tropical savannah climate because of a warm
gulf stream and a mild trade wind. This climate can be divided into
two seasons. A rainy season and a dry period. During the rainy season
heavy rainfall is not uncommon. Rain usually falls during the late
afternoon or the evening. The dry period is the most popular among
tourists because temperatures are a little lower and humidity figures
are more pleasant. In this part of the world there is a risk of
tropical depressions and hurricanes all year round.
