Cuba has a very nice climate, you can go in any season because
it is almost sure that you will find sunny days and a warm beach,
bad weather is no longer than 3 days.
The mos important fact to be afraid of are hurricanes, lets talk
about this meteorological event..
Hurricanes - called typhoons or
tropical cyclones in some parts of the world - form over all of
the world's tropical oceans except the South Atlantic and the
Southeastern Pacific. In all parts of the world, a tropical storm
has 39 mph to 73 mph winds. When the winds reach at least 74 mph
the storm becomes a hurricane, typhoon or tropical cyclone, depending
on its location
Most storms come in summer, early fall
Tropical storms begin during and just after
a region's summer when the ocean is warmest. Most basins can be threatened
by tropical cyclones for six months of the year, but the largest numbers
of storms are usually concentrated in a two or so month-long period. Similarities
in each region such as warm ocean water, light winds aloft and days of
warm temperatures and high humidity help create tropical cyclones over
more than 60 percent of the world's tropical latitudes.
Tropical storms and hurricanes do not form from about
5 degree north of the equator to about 5 degrees south of the equator.
At these low latitudes the Earth's spin has little effect on organizing
clusters of thunderstorms into whirling tropical cyclones.
The official hurricane season begins May 15 in the eastern
and central Pacific basin and June 1 in the Atlantic basin, which includes
the Gulf of Mexico and the Caribbean Sea. But the early part of the season
normally brings few storms.
September is peak season in Caribbean, Bahamas, Mexico,
The odds of a hurricane forming and striking land in
the Caribbean or northward along Mexico's west coast increases as the
season unfolds in July and reaches a peak in September. Mexico's Baja
California peninsula also becomes increasingly vulnerable to hurricanes
beginning in July. Cabo San Lucas at the southern tip as well as La Paz
about 100 miles up the eastern coast face a July hurricane about every
The biggest threat to the Caribbean and the Bahamas,
the U.S. and to eastern Mexico begins in August and lasts through October.
In general, places in the southern Caribbean have fewer places than in
the northern Caribbean.
Everywhere in the Atlantic basin is fair game for hurricanes,
including Bermuda, especially during September when the season reaches
its peak. Long-term records show that four times as many storms have formed
in the Atlantic Basin in mid September than during mid June.
While September is the peak of the hurricane season
in the Atlantic Basin, storms don't hit every year. Typically, several
years can go by without even a close call. Table 3 lists 15 places around
the basin where storms have hit in the past, showing just how rare they
Curiously, the eastern Pacific's hurricane season peaks
sooner than the Atlantic's, then trails off rapidly by late September.
Most storms head to sea in August and September, leaving just a few late-season
storms roaming closer to the coast.
Forecasts for more than 2 or 3 days ahead are not possible
Don't expect any forecasts of how likely a hurricane
is to hit any particular place more than a couple of days before it hits.
While it's possible to say that some years are likely
to breed more hurricanes than others, hurricane forecasters have no way
of saying a week or two ahead of time that a hurricane is likely to form,
much likely where it's likely to hit. Forecasters hope to some day be
able to give the odds of a particular place being threatened a week or
two before a storm hits. But for now, such forecasts are only a dream.
This means that for years to come, anyone planning a
tropical vacation has only the odds, based on history, to go by. These
odds tell you that a hurricane is more likely to disrupt a August or September
Caribbean vacation than a June vacation and that you don't have to worry
about hurricanes from December through May. But, August or September is
a better time than December or January for your dream trip to the Great
Barrier Reef in Cuba.
