Grenada has a tropical wet climate with warm temperatures and relatively heavy rainfall, and like most islands in the eastern Caribbean, conditions are cooled somewhat by the northeast trade winds.
Yearly precipitation varies from more than 3,500 mm, (138 inches) on the windward mountainsides, to less than 1,500 mm, (59.1 in) in the lowlands.
Grenada receives its greatest levels of precipitation from June through November, while rainfall is less pronounced from December through May.
Temperatures averaging 29°C (84.2°F) are constant throughout the year, with slightly higher readings in the lowlands. And as is the norm, temps lower in the upper elevations.
