paradise island weather..sept/nov?

I'm planning a trip to Bahamas this year, at the Atlantis. Based on the price of flights, I will be going the last week of September or the last week of October. How is the weather during these times? Is one of these times better than the other?

Thanks for all input!!

Hot and humid. It's also the more active period of hurricane season...hence the better rates. A daily chance of thunderstorms, but not a rain out.

The peak of hurricane season is the first week of september so statistically your chances of a tropical storm lessen as you move later in the year from that date. Theoretically late october should be better than late september. We have visited a couple of times in late October. As bev indicated , it can be humid and rainy but we have never had a total washout and we have had a couple of trips with very little rain.. We had a near miss last year as we left the island a couple of days before hurricane sandy hit.

We are making the trip the last week in October this year.

Hi Cakez4 - Welcome to the Forums!

I'd go with the last week of September - because the water is likely to be warmer (and I like warmer water) & also it's not a busy time. Late Oct. isn't so busy a time either, but maybe there are USA schools with breaks then, it usually seems a little busier then, than Sept.

Have Fun Deciding!
