The climate of Montserrat (United
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.

Climate tables are useful but they don’t 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.
