The Weather in Jamaica!

by Anna

QUESTION:


Hi, My boyfriend and I have planned a trip to visit Ocho Rios on June 13th, through the 17th. I have checked the weather every day and it seems to be quite rainy.

I know hurricane season is in bloom but I didn't think to check for weather this early in the month! If you have any encouraging words about the chance of it still being sunny for our trip, please, share!

Thank you so much,
-Worried Traveler

Hi Anna,

It would really be unfortunate if the weather continues as it is this this week. The truth is that even in the hurricane season we still have beautiful sunshine and very few hurricanes affect us.

Yes we get rains, but it is not prolonged for a long period of time. Perhaps around early to mid September is the exception, recently.

June historically is quite a favorable month, so I don't expect the weather since the last few days to continue for long.

A background on our climate here

I did a quick forecast for you at accuweather.com
This is the forecast today:

And this is the forecast during that time

Notice the difference?
Basically it will not all be sunshine then- some winds and stuff, but it should not be anything to stop you from having a grand vacation.

Stay in touch

Rain, rain go away!
by: Jean

When we stayed in Ocho Rios there were a few days when it rained all day, and we were stuck in the resort, not happy I can tell you.

Then one of our friends from the Reggae Beach (a couple of miles out of Ochie) came up to see us and said it had been a beautiful day there.

So the next day we opened up our umbrellas and got a taxi to the Reggae Beach where it was glorious sunny day.

On returning to Ochie we were informed that it had rained there all day!

So from then on if it rained we went to the Reggae Beach or Robins Bay (loved it there) etc ... Learned that because Ocho Rios is so close to the hills (and also true about Montego Bay and Black River etc) it can rain quite a bit.

Motto of the story - if it rain MOVE!!
