Yeah, persons are searching for information on the Jamaican temperature by month.

ANSWER: by Wellesley

Straight to the point, I'll share the average of the highest (or hottest) temperatures in Jamaica here, by month.

Great! So did you notice a trend here?

Oh yeah, July and August are the hottest month in Jamaica now, with January and February the coolest.

By the way, did you know that on Thursday, August 3, 2019, Jamaica (via Kingston) recorded it's hottest day in 24 years! Sigh

The following graph, courtesy of Jamaica's Met Office, also shows temperature trends in Jamaica.

BUT not that this time, these are straight averages of high and low temperatures, NOT an average of the high temperatures as indicated earlier.

Also, note that this was reported in Celcius. If needed, simply do the conversion to get to Fahrenheit (F=(C × 9/5) + 32).
