The climate in Guadeloupe

Average daytime and nighttime temperatures

All climatic diagrams of this site are taken from the collected data from the official weather station of Guadeloupe at an altitude of 8m above sea level. All data correspond to the average monthly values of the last 20 years.

Back to overview: Guadeloupe

Climate zone: tropics

High humidity in Guadeloupe and high temperatures are causing a pleasant weather at times, but also and partly tropical hot and humid. It is warm to hot all year round and invites to bathe at average water temperatures of 27 degrees. Dued to the lesser rain the best time for traveling is in March.

Long-term development of temperatures from 1991 - 2019

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

In the years 1991 to 2019 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 1998 with 28.7 °C. 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 26.3 °C in the last years before 2019. So it has hardly changed at all in the past 29 years. This trend only applies to the selected 1 weather stations in Guadeloupe. A considerably more comprehensive evaluation of the global warming has been provided separately.
