Bahamas weather is agreeable year-round, but it is most pleasant in the winter when many North Americans head south to escape the snow and frost. The hottest and coldest periods of Bahamas weather are only separated by about 10 degrees Fahrenheit, a result of both its latitude and an area of high atmospheric pressure hovering over the tropical North Atlantic, but the summer feels much hotter due to the humidity. Visitors should expect the Bahamas weather to reach upwards of 85 degrees in the summer, which is also its rainy season. During the winter in the Bahamas, weather hovers in the low to mid 70s and includes much less rain and humidity.
Bahamas weather is also tempered by gentle trade winds that consistently blow inland off the water. These breezes both warm and cool the islands, depending on the season and the ambient Bahamas weather. Staying close to the coastline is the best way of taking advantage of the trade winds, which grow more noticeable as you approach the water.
