Daily maximum temperatures
The highest daytime temperatures in Barbados are reached in September with an average of 31.2 °C. The coldest month, on the other hand, is January, with an average of just 29.1 °C. In the United States, July is the warmest month, with 30.8 °C. There, it is coolest in January with an average of 6.0 °C.

At night, it cools down to varying degrees depending on the country and altitude. In Barbados, temperatures drop as low as 23.1 °C in February. The warmest nights are in June at 25.3 °C. In the United States, it is coolest at night in January at -4.2 °C and warmest in July at 18.8 °C. This corresponds to a cooling of 5.5 to 6.4 °C in Barbados and 9.8 to 12.5 °C in the United States.
Rain days per month
By definition, a rain day is a day on which at least 0.1 liters of precipitation per m² fall. This corresponds to a 1 square meter puddle in which the water stands 0.1 mm high — insofar as the water does not seep away or evaporate. So it does not have to rain all day long. August brings the most rainy days (16.3) in Barbados. With an average of only 7.6 days, March is the friendliest. In the United States, it rains most often in May with 8.3 days.
Precipitation amount per day
Depending on the season and the location of a country, the wind brings a varying amount of water with it. As a rule, the water evaporating in the oceans is absorbed and then transported inland. The greatest amount of rain (hail or dew are also forms of precipitation) in Barbados occurs in November, when about 6.7 liters per square meter fall per day. In the United States, the average amount of precipitation ranges from 1.9 liters per day in January to 3.1 in June. However, these are average values. If you consider that there are only 14.1 rainy days in Barbados in November, each of them accounts for about 14.4 liters.
Sunshine hours per day
With 2,957 hours of sunshine per year, Barbados is in the lead. The most hours of sunshine (8.7 per day) are in February. The United States falls into second place with only 2,628 hours. There the sun is visible in December for only 4.3 hours per day, so not hidden behind clouds.
Hours of daylight
The length of a day varies throughout the year and depends on the distance from the equator. In December, the day in Barbados is only 11.4 hours long. In June, on the other hand, it is 12.9 hours. In the United States, it is 9.2 hours in December and 15.3 in June.
