Barbados Weather in May

Barbados weather in May… like the other months of the year remains near perfect. This means the usual clear blue skies and spectacular turquoise waters… But unlike the earlier months in the year you’ll find that the temperatures are getting progressively warmer as the island gets ready to welcome the summer heat.

May is the last month of the dry season before the much wetter hurricane season begins. You’ll notice an increase in rainfall over the month of April. There are also 9 hours of wonderful sunshine per day with average high temperatures of 88°F.

The cooling breezes in May compliments the rising temperatures so it isn’t too hot and sticky, despite the increasing humidity.
