Temperatures are usually warm in Antigua. Daytime readings range 75-80°F (25-30°C) and nights are cooler by about 10 F (5°C). The islands' tropical climate is moderated by fairly constant northeast tradewinds and there is little precipitation because of the islands' low elevations. In general, the wettest period is September through November. The low rainfall and constant easterly breezes create one of the most pleasant climates in the West Indies. An exception is July-October, when it's cloudier, hotter and more humid. However, even that season can be very pleasant.
