Turks and Caicos Weather | Villa Capri

We get asked this question all of the time; "What's the weather like in the Turks and Caicos?"

Great question and the hated answer we give is "it depends!"

   turks and caicos Weather brought this to Villa capri!

 

turks and caicos Weather brought this to Villa capri!

It depends on:

  • The time of day
  • The day of week
  • The part of the island you're on during any of these times
  • The month of the year

Whew! I can tell you that most of the year the weather in the Turks and Caicos is beautiful. 

Turks and Caicos Rainfall

The islands get little rainfall during the year, just 33" in an average of 43 days  and that's compared to the average 149 days of rainfall in the Caribbean overall. There are 350 days of sunshine during a year which is awesome. April - July has more small showers than other months but most of the rain comes in larger storms during hurricane season.

Turks and Caicos Hurricane Season

The hurricane season is officially July 1-November 30 and most have hit end of August to mid September. The TCI usually receives a minimum of four days warning that a storm may be headed our way, and often as much as two weeks, depending on its actual path and speed. TCI has been hit with hurricanes 5 times since 1960 but we're also affected by tropical storms in between!

1960: Hurricane Donna - September

1985: Hurricane Kate - November

2004: Hurricane Frances - September

2008: Hurricane Hanna - TWICE - September

2008: Hurricane Ike - September

Hurricane Matthew missed Turks and Caicos this past year. 

Turks and Caicos Temperatures

The temperatures are lovely. Over the course of a year, the temperature typically varies from 71°F to 89°F and is rarely below 68°F or above 91°F.

Warm season is June 9 - September 30 - Daily high is 87 degrees.

Cool season is December 3 - January 22 - Daily high is 81 degrees.

Water Temperature

Water temperature in the summer is 82 to 84 degrees (28-29 degrees celsius) and in winter about 74 to 78 degrees (23-26 degrees celsius). This makes it optimal for enjoying the beautiful sandy beach, then taking a dip, snorkel or dive!

Turks and Caicos Wind

Wind speeds vary from 4 mph to 20 mph, rarely exceeding 29 mph (strong breeze).

The highest average wind speed of 13 mph occurs mid July, at which time the average daily maximum wind speed is 19 mph.

The windier part of the islands are Long Bay Beach, no wonder it's a kite boarding dream. Chalk Sound (no wonder the restaurant is called "Las Brisas").

So what are you waiting for? Get down here, the Turks and Caicos weather can't be beat!

Epic Sunrises From the Deck of Villa Capri, Turks and Caicos

There is SUCH a value placed on sunsets, but what about sunrises? Often forgotten they can be one of the most beautiful things to watch...ever! And what better place to watch some amazing sunrises than at Villa Capri in the Turks and Caicos?

These photos were taken right from the deck of Villa Capri, facing the amazing waters of Chalk Sound.

On our last visit we slept with the curtains open so we'd HAVE to wake up and see them. 

Without further adieu, here they are, hope you get to see them too!
