Whether you plan to vacation in Montego Bay or not, you will still need to know the weather forecast because this is the main gateway to Jamaica for tourists.
On this page I have provided information on Montego Bay Jamaica weather conditions that you can expect to experience while on the north coast.
Before we look at the seasons in Montego Bay, let us look at the overall climate in Mobay.
In the early morning, from about 6 am, the temperature is slightly cold. As it approaches 10 am, the temperature starts to feel warmer. The afternoon to evening is the hottest. The nights are very cool with little or no rainfall.

Montego Bay averages a high of 86°F and a low of 75°F throughout the year. These temperatures are pretty good for taking a vacation and getting away from the cold.
Spring is immediately before summer and this is the time of
the year when the temperature begins to get warmer. As it relates to weather and money, this is a good time to travel to Montego Bay.
The hotels have such good discounts during these months that you will find it hard to refuse coming here in spring.
During spring, the average temperature is 79 °F.
At nights, you can feel the tropical weather in Montego Bay Jamaica when temperatures drop as low as 75 °F.
As far as rainfall, March and April are the best months for traveling in Montego Bay primarily because there is little or no rainfall.
When the month of May approaches, the chances of experiencing rainfall will triple the chances of rain falling in May when compared to March and April.
Overall travelling to Montego Bay in the spring is a good idea. The sea temperature is lowest in spring time, even lower than winter.
The months of July and August are when you experience the best summer weather in Montego Bay.
Even though these months fall within the rainy season, you will hardly experience any rainfall and when the rain does fall it will only be for a few minutes because in Mobay, the sun is always shining.
Besides, the rain that falls during this time is really just cooling you off.
If you plan to travel to Montego Bay in the summer, and you want to avoid as much rainfall as possible, visit in July.
At nights, temperatures will reach s high as 88 °F and as low as 77 °F in the nights. This is the best weather for outdoor activities and enjoying your vacation.
Don't worry about the temperature being too hot because the average temperature is really about 81 °F.
If anyone tells you that autumn is the best time to travel to Jamaica it must be because of the low prices on flights and the heavily discounted hotel rooms because you should expect a lot of rainfall.
