The weather in Anguilla
Every Caribbean island is unique, and that applies equally to annual weather patterns that you will want to become knowledgeable about in planning your Caribbean wedding. The weather conditions on a flat island will be quite different than conditions on a mountainous island, where moist air can be held over the island for hours.
Many say that Anguilla has the best weather in the Caribbean, a boast that might be challenged by some other destinations for a Caribbean wedding, but the fact is that the island's weather is almost perfect year-round. The island should certainly be high on your list when ranking destinations based on weather.
Anguilla is very flat and, accordingly, does not attract rain clouds. The island's annual rain fall is only 35 inches, so even during the rainy season of September and October, it is mostly sunny.
Just like in your home town, there can be rain on one side of the town (island) while the other side is sunny and beautiful.
December is thought by many to be one of the best months because it is cooler than other times a year and, because of this, it is generally the beginning of the "high" season, in a tourism context. From January to March, which is the end of the high season, the weather warms a little until April when the heat picks up until it peaks in the Summer months. August brings Carnival, but it continues to be one of the hottest months. The heat continues during September until the rains come and run through October. The cooling trend starts all over again in November.
Bear in mind, the differences in temperature at different times of the year are not great and, as stated earlier, even when there is rain it does not linger over the island long enough to seriously interfere with your Caribbean wedding.
