Wondering what St. John weather is like? For a small island at latitude 18°N, longitude 64° W, what can you expect when you visit?
Although St. John sits close to the earth’s equator, a steady stream of easterly winds (aka the trade winds) keeps us relatively cool throughout the year. While our cousins up north swelter in the summer, the leeward islands of the West Indies are blessed with a blissful breeze. When winter hits up north, St. John remains relatively cool. Average temperatures range from a low of 78 to a high of 86, twelve months a year.
Foders tells readers “the constant trade winds help keep [Caribbean] temperatures bearable all year even when the weather is hottest.” It is not unusual for St. John weather to be cooler than a stateside city in summer.
Since two-thirds of St. John is preserved as national park, you’ll have plenty options for enjoying the great weather. Prized beaches, historical ruins, hiking trails and park events to keep you busy every day of the week.
St. John also celebrates Carnival in the summer, culminating on July 4th with a big parade and fireworks. Experience St. John weather in late August and you’ll be treated to a nighttime light show known as the annual Perseid meteor shower.
Accommodations are also significantly less expensive during the summer months, with most vacation rental villas renting for 30% less than they do in high-season.
