Barbados Weather in September

The Barbados Weather in September is rainy, sometimes torrential, but if you had to choose between rain and a hurricane, I think you would pick the former.

The Caribbean Hurricane Season in Barbados

The Caribbean hurricane season starts in June and ends in November.  However, there is a higher probability of several snowstorms hitting the Eastern United States in one winter season than a hurricane hitting Barbados in hurricane season.  

Why?  Barbados lies outside of the hurricane belt but inside of the Caribbean archipelago.  As a result, there is some residual inclement weather.

Is it Wise to be Prepared?

Absolutely.  In Barbados, there is some preparedness, but it is “business as usual” as hurricanes in Barbados are rare.  In most cases, the island experiences inclement weather (gale, rain) from neighboring islands affected by hurricanes.    

The consensus is that hurricanes will spare the island, and they usually do.  The last major hurricane was in 1966; the last minor was in 2009.

Barbados Weather in September - Rainy Season

September through mid-November tends to be the wettest period in Barbados, but just to be clear, this does not mean it will rain every day in the rainy season.  In fact, some seasons can be dry with minimal rain.

Air Travel to Barbados in September

Barbados weather in September brings rain (and sometimes, torrential rain).  

Nevertheless, if low airfares to Barbados, fewer tourists, and great hotel deals are more important than rainy weather, September would be the perfect time to book travel to the island.  You will notice a drop in airfares after Labor Day when the kids are back in school.

The start of the school year signals the slow period in Barbados’ tourism industry.  

Many hotels undergo renovations in September to gear up for the upcoming winter season, but if you think that the island comes to a screeching halt, think again.  In fact, if you were in Barbados in the month of September, you probably wouldn’t notice the difference.
