So what weather can you expect on your July vacation in Exuma?
As the calendar moves from June to July we are into the height of summer and also statistically, we are in hurricane season. In the 20 plus years we have lived in Exuma I do not recall experiencing a hurricane in July, that problem is usually threatening in September.
So back to the weather. Our temperature statistically shows highs of 87 degrees F ( 30 C) during the day and 78 degrees F (26 C) at night. But, as a believer in global warming, and someone who has just experienced one of the hottest Junes on record, I suggest that you can add a couple of degrees to have us hovering around 90 F.
While June is statistically one of our wettest months, July offers us up to one inch of rain for the month.
Humidity has by now soared into the high nineties with a 13 knot breeze providing a little cooling effect.
Now to the good news ! The Ocean has really warmed and is now a toasty 84 F (29 C) degrees, Yippee ! So no excuses for missing that dip.
So July is on our doorstep, it’s going to be hot and humid, so keep hydrated, loads of water, loads of sunscreen.
So why not picnic on a soft sand Exuma beach, choose one with shade and exposure to the East to get that cooling breeze, and spend your day in and out of the Ocean till you become all wrinkly !…. Enjoy
