St. Kitts Weather and Climate Overview:
CLIMATE: St. Kitts-Nevis has a tropical climate influenced by the NE trade winds. There is a steady cool breeze for most of the year and humidity is low at 71%. Average annual precipitation is 1,375 mm (54 inches) and from May to October rainfall is heavier while temperatures are a little hotter. Average temperature ranges are from 24 degrees Celsius (75 degrees Fahrenheit) to 27 degrees Celsius (81 degrees Fahrenheit) all year.
Endowed with beaches, scenery and a warm sunny climate which gives it great tourist potential, it is, however, also vulnerable to hurricanes.
Light summer clothing may be worn all year. Dress is informal, even at elegant hotels and plantation inns, though you may want to dress up a bit for a nice dinner. Nudity is not permitted at any beach. Swim wear or scant clothing should never be worn in towns or villages.
The best time to go is the summer low-season (June to August); but keep in mind that, if you plan to travel to other Caribbean destinations, some of them are appreciably hotter than St Kitts and Nevis during the summer.
