Weather Overview for Ocho Rios

Ocho Rios is located on the north coast of Jamaica about 100 miles to the east of the island’s other most popular holiday destination, Montego Bay. It’s a fast-growing town, thanks in no small part to the tourist trade, and now has nearly 100,000 inhabitants. Ocho Rios is a popular stop-off for cruise ships meandering through the Caribbean.

The climate of Ocho Rios is tropical. This means temperatures are warm year round with only small fluctuations and two distinct seasons – wet and dry. The average temperature varies just 3°C across the year – from its lowest of 26°C in January and February to its highest of 29°C around August. Ocho Rios sits within the Atlantic hurricane belt and is at risk between June and November.

The wet season varies in length: it begins around late May or early June and runs through to late November or early December. It is the hottest time of year; most days get up to 31°C and nights stay around 26°C. Making the heat that little bit more uncomfortable between June and September is increased humidity. The rain normally falls in short, heavy showers. September and October are the wettest months of the rainy season. Statistically, October has the highest monthly rainfall average with 171mm, although this does vary year to year. The intensity of the wet season also varies, depending largely on hurricane activity in the vicinity. Hurricanes rarely hit the resort, though it was subject to Hurricane Ivan in September 2004, but if one of these cyclones even passes nearby it can cause violent storms.

Many people find the wet season a good time to visit as there are far fewer tourists and it is generally much cheaper. You must remember that visiting at this time of year is running the risk of bad weather at this time of year – no one wants to be stuck in a hurricane on holiday - but equally you can be lucky; the rains often fall at night and showers are normally brief, leaving plenty of time for sunny weather.

For the rest of the year - the dry season - sunshine prevails and rainfall is much lower. However, this is a tropical location so showers are never out of the question; it rains quite regularly but showers are lighter and shorter, and clouds rarely linger for long. The coolest weather comes in January and February when the average temperature is 26°C. These months are arguably the best time to visit as the temperature is a little more comfortable and sunshine is guaranteed. Temperatures range between 23°C at night and 29°C in the day. Low humidity stops the heat from being uncomfortable, though most will still take some time to acclimatise.

In general, Ocho Rios enjoys a fantastic, hot, tropical climate that can be enjoyed at any time of year – the climate is one of the main reasons the Caribbean is such a popular holiday destination. Just prepare to get wet if you visit during the rainy season.
