The Turks and Caicos Islands have a tropical climate, hot all year round, with a hotter and muggy season from May to October, and a relatively cool season from December to March.
The temperatures are high throughout the year: the daily average is around 23.5 degrees Celsius (74.5 °F) in winter and 28 °C (82 °F) in summer. From December to March, sometimes the cool wind from the United States can lower the temperature by a few degrees, so that the minimum can drop below 20 °C (68 °F). Summer is sultry, but the heat is tempered by the breeze.
Here are the average temperatures of Cockburn Town, on the island of Grand Turk.

In the period from June to November, tropical depressions and hurricanes can hit the Turks and Caicos Islands, as is typically the case in the Caribbean. However, hurricanes are more likely in the period from August to October.

Best Time

If it were not for the risk of hurricanes, the Turks and Caicos could be visited at any time of the year. The period from May to October is the most hot and humid, while the period from September to December is quite rainy, even though the rains occur mostly in the form of downpours or thunderstorms in the afternoon or evening, and do not last long. From December to March, some days can be a bit cool and breezy, but usually not to the point of disturbing those who are on the beach. So the best time is from January to April, and April is probably the best month overall.

What to pack

From December to April: pack light clothes, a sweatshirt for the evening.
From May to November: pack tropics-friendly, light clothing, and possibly a light sweatshirt and a light raincoat for thunderstorms.
