Weather in October
lies in the eye of the wet season in the United States Virgin Islands
with at least 15 rainy days. The average precipitation is to the tune of 5.4" (137mm), with periods of heavy rain.
Day temperatures drop slightly, to register a high of 89°F (31.7°C), while nights dip to 77°F (25°C), on average. Local storms in the Caribbean add to the possibility of hurricanes and often throw a spanner in planned vacations. Showers are intense during the storms, but it is uncommon for them to last over several days. The sun is always looking for an opportunity to break the cloud cover, and the sunshine averages a healthy 8 hours per day during the month. The usually calm waters are prone to waves of unusual height, which makes water activities risky.
Wear a jacket or carry an umbrella during outdoor visits. Cruises receive a lukewarm response during October in the United States Virgin Islands.
