Weather in October


How is the weather at Providenciales in the first week of October ? We are considering visiting but not sure if it is going to be raining.

Impossible to predict if t's going to rain during any given period of time. While October is one of the "wetter" months it's all relative as the T&C's are pretty arid. On average there are 6.3 "rain days" (i.e. days where there are some measurable rain somewhere on the island) in October vs. 2.1 "rain days" in the driest month (March). Suffice to say, all day rains are rare anytime during the year - most rain lasts minutes rather than hours.

I see inundating rains, whipping winds and high seas in my crystal ball.

I've been going in both October & May for the past 4 years, in that time it rained 2X for about 30 minutes. Believe me when I tell you it will not matter, you are in PARADISE. Enjoy, go, no worries. Liquid sunshine. :)
