The climate of Turks and Caicos Islands (United Kingdom)
The Turks and Caicos Islands are an archipelago situated off the coast of Haiti and the Dominican Republic. The islands used to be part of Jamaica and are still part of the United Kingdom. The capital of the Turks and Caicos Islands is Cockburn Town. The archipelago has a total population of more than 36,000. The archipelago consists of 8 islands of which 2 are uninhabited. More than 22,000 of the inhabitants of the Turks and Caicos Islands live on the island of Providenciales which also has its own international airport. This area attracts the most tourists. On the Grace Bay several beautiful resorts with white beaches and palm trees can be found. Swimming with dolphins is a popular activity. The Turks and Caicos Islands have a tropical climate with two distinct seasons, a dry season and a wet season. During the last two months of the year precipitation figures are highest; the rest of the year is fairly dry, especially by Caribbean standards. During the wet period humidity figures may rise. Temperatures are constant all year round. However, the difference in temperatures between day and night may be more than 10 degrees. From July till December there is a risk of tropical storms and cyclones.

More climate information

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 the Turks and Caicos Islands. Please, note that local deviations may occur.
