Average daytime and nighttime temperatures

All climate diagrams on this page come from the collected data of 2 weather stations.
All data correspond to the average monthly values of the last 20 years.

Back to overview: Guadeloupe

Climate zone: tropics

High humidity and hot temperatures make the weather in Guadeloupe pleasant at times but also tropical humid. It is warm to hot all year round, inviting bathing at average water temperatures of 27 degrees. Due to less rain, the best time for traveling is in March.

Temperature records of the last 65 years

The hottest temperature measured from 1958 to January 2023 was reported by the Le Raizet Aero weather station. In July 2001, the record temperature of 34.2 °C was reported here. The hottest summer from July to September was recorded in 1998 with an average temperature of 28.5 °C. This average temperature will normally be measured every four to six hours, thus also including the nights. Normally, this value is 27.4 degrees Celsius. The average maximum daily temperature at that time was 32.3 °C.

The coldest day in these 65 years was reported by the Le Raizet Aero weather station. Here the temperature dropped to 15.6 °C in February 2000. Le Raizet Aero lies at an altitude of eight meters above sea level. The coldest winter (January to March) was in 1968 with an average temperature of 23.1 °C. In Guadeloupe, it is usual to have about 1.4 degrees more at 24.5 °C for this three-month period.

The most precipitation fell in September 1958. With 20.0 mm per day, the Le Raizet Aero weather station recorded the highest monthly average of the last 65 years.

Long-term development of temperatures from 1991 - 2022

In contrast to single record values, long-term development cannot simply be brought about by all weather stations in the country. Both the number and the locations are constantly changing. An average value would give a distorted result. If several measuring stations in particularly cold mountain or coastal regions are added in one year, the average would decrease as a result of this alone. If a station fails during the summer or winter months, it does not provide any values and distorts the average again. The subsequent long-term development was therefore reduced to only 1 measuring points in order to have comparable data over as long a period as possible.

In the years 1991 to 2022, there were only these 1 weather stations in the whole country, which reported continuous temperature values (Le Raizet Aero). From these weather reports, we have created a long-term development that shows the monthly average temperatures. The hottest month in this entire period was August 1998 at 28.7 °C. January 2008 was the coldest month with an average temperature of 23.7 °C.

The average annual temperature was about 26.4 °C in the years after 1991 and about 26.1 °C in the last years before 2022. So it has dropped by about 0.3 °C. This trend only applies to the selected 1 weather stations in Guadeloupe. A considerably more comprehensive evaluation of global warming has been provided separately.
