Barbados Weather in January

Barbados weather in January like most of the year is just perfect… Actually the ideal conditions presented by this weather is loved by both visitors and local alike. Mainly because the nights are especially cool and the daylight hours are warm but not overwhelming with the heat.

This is the result of the bitter cold winters often experience up north, the winter months have a cooling effect on the North Easterly trade winds that blow across the island. So cool are these winds that some January nights can see the temperature drop as low as 19 degrees Celsius…

Now you may think that’s nothing but believe me that is really cold for most born and bread Bajans.
