The climate of Montserrat (United Kingdom)
Montserrat is located in the Caribbean Sea and is part of the windward islands. Montserrat is a British overseas territory. The island has a population of 6,000. The capital of Montserrat is Plymouth. However, this city has been uninhabitable for several years because of volcanic eruptions. Brades is the unofficial capital now. In the years prior to the volcanic eruptions Montserrat had a population of 15,000, most of them have fled. The airport which was situated in the vicinity of the capital in the southern part of the island was destroyed and replaced by a new airport in the northern part of the island. Montserrat has a moist tropical climate strongly influenced by the Caribbean Sea. The year can be divided into two parts; a wet and hot period and a drier and cooler period. From February till May both precipitation figures and temperatures are lower than the rest of the year. In short, the climate is warm and very wet. An ever blowing sea wind offers some cooling and causes average humidity figures to be slightly lower. During the second part of the year there is a risk of tropical storms and hurricanes. Please, bear in mind that volcanic eruptions have been occurring on a regular basis over the past few years.

More climate information
Climate tables are useful but they dont give an overall picture of the climate and possible weather conditions during a period of time. How high the chances are of hot or cold weather or hurricanes can often not be found in these tables. This is why we offer extra climate information per month. The figures below are for Montserrat. Please, note that local deviations may occur.
