Antigua Weather in April

Antigua’s weather in April historically has been much like every other month on this southeastern Caribbean island.

In fact, Antigua has some of the most consistent weather in the entire Caribbean.

Average temperatures vary only a few degrees each month and range from the low 80s to upper 80s Fahrenheit all year.

Rainfall also follows a more narrow range each month than most destinations.

April is about average for rainfall and slightly better than average for daytime temperatures.

Average Rainfall

Over a 30-year period, Antigua has averaged 2.7 inches of rain in April, which is slightly above the 1.5 to 2.2 inches for the driest part of the year in January through March, according to the Antigua and Barbuda Meteorology Service.

The average also is better than the 4.4 inches in May, which is a brief rainy season for much of the Caribbean, and even better than the five or more inches in September through November during the main rainy season.

(Another brief dry season arrives in June, when average rainfall drops down again to about two inches a month.)

It rains on average about nine days during the month, again slightly higher than the eight days in February, March and June.

Average Temperatures

Antigua has an average high temperature in April of 84.6 degrees Fahrenheit or 29.2 degrees Celsius. That temperature is about two degrees higher than the lowest of the year and three degrees below the highest point of the year.

The average low is 73.9 degrees F or 23.3 degrees C, which is only two degrees above the low point of the year and five degrees below the high of the year.

Whether to Go

April weather in Antigua provides a combination of warming temperatures with lower risks of rain.

The island receives more visitors from December through March because of eastern Caribbean cruise visitors who want to get away from northern winters.

As a result, crowds will be lighter, which in combination with better weather make April one of the better months to visit.
