The climate of Grande-Terre (Guadeloupe)
Grande-Terre is, as far as size is concerned, the second island of the French overseas department of Guadeloupe, which is only separated from the island of Basse-Terre by a salt water river. Grande-Terre lies in the Caribbean Sea. In the south-west lies the capital of the island , Pointe--Pitre, which at the same time is the largest town in the island. Point--Pitre has the most important sea-port of the country and at the same time the international airport is situated next to this town. Totally a little less than 200,000 inhabitants live in this island. Nowadays tourism is the most important source of income in the island Mant tourists yearly travel to Grande-Terre. The islands are particularly popular with walkers and divers.
Grande-Terre has a tropical climate with here and there a micro-climate where the average amount of precipitation is somewhat smaller than in the rest of the island. These micro-climates in the island are easily to be recognized because of the other vegetation that occurs there. The island has a wetter and a drier period. The drier period for the greater part falls together with the first months of the year. In the second half of the year it is somewhat wetter here and because of that the average air humidity in this period is a lot higher. Then tropical storms and hurricanes can occur here. The temperatures by day are here around 30 degrees centigrade throughout the year and the temperatures by night are only a few degrees lower.

Climate figures are very useful but dont present a general impression of the climate and the eventual weather circumstances within a certain period. The figures dont always reflect the chance of wintry weather, extreme heat or hurricanes. That is why we offer useful extra climate information for each month of the year:
