CLIMATE

Clear Weather Curaçao lies well below the hurricane belt, so the climate is sunny and dry. The average temperature is about 28° C (82° F). The daily changes in temperature (an average of 26° C (78° F) when the sun rises and 30° C (86° F) one hour after the sun has reached its highest position) are bigger than the difference between the coldest and warmest season. It doesn't rain very often on Curaçao (an average of 574.4 mm (23 inches) yearly), and if it rains the showers are short and heavy. The rainy season occurs in November and December. Therefore, the sun shines 80% of the time. Humidity is low for the tropics, and the north-east trade winds blow constantly, keeping the island cool all the time.
