What’s the weather like in Antigua in October?
Located in the West Indies where the Caribbean Sea and North Atlantic Ocean meet, Antigua has a tropical climate with high temperatures all year round due to its closeness to the equator. The hot season’s from June to October while it’s slightly cooler from December to March. You’ll get more rain in the hot season and while October’s one of the wettest months, there’s much less rain in Antigua than other Caribbean islands. You’ll be kept cool by easterly winds as well as pleasant breezes if you’re on the coast.
The average high in Antigua is 30ºC in October, which is perfect for relaxing on the beach. Evenings are still nice and warm, only cooling to 24ºC, so a room with air conditioning’s a good idea. At 29ºC, the sea’s lovely for swimming, while humidity’s high. There’s 101mm of rain over 16 days, and you can expect 12 hours of daylight with seven hours of sunshine each day. UV levels will be very high so remember to bring plenty of sun cream. The sun goes down just before 6pm at the start of the month.
