If you’re looking to plan a trip when the weather is more stable and the temperatures are pleasant, you will want to avoid planning your trip to the Bahamas during hurricane season, which runs from June 1 until November 30. The period from August through October poses the greatest risk for hurricane activity. Throughout the rainy season, the Bahamas typically experiences around 12 to 20 tropical storms annually, with an average of six developing into hurricanes. Direct impacts from hurricanes are uncommon for Caribbean islands, however, they usually pass nearby, causing significant rainfall. If your travel plans involve visiting the Bahamas during hurricane season, make sure to stay vigilant and keep a close eye on weather updates.
