The hurricane season in Jamaica officially runs from June 1 to November 30. The Caribbean and the Atlantic region generally experience few or no storms during the first two months (June and July) of the season. However, the latter portion of the season is regarded as the most active part of the season. The most active months are September and October. This is also Jamaica’s primary rainy season, with monthly average rainfall generally exceeding 200 mm. During the hurricane season, we provided accurate and early forecasting of storms and their impact on the region. The island weather service also issues adequate warning messages, so that the necessary precautions can be taken. However, if you are heading to Jamaica during the hurricane season for that perfect Caribbean vacations, you should always visit our web site Jamaica Weather for the latest storm forecast.
