Rainfall for July 2022: We had quite a range of rainfall for the month on the island. The lowest reporting station was West Bay with 2.76 inches. The highest was Politilly with 7.33 inches. More typical across the island was Sandy Bay’s 5.19 inches, and that is what is going in the record book for this month. That amount is pretty typical of July. We are now entering a time period that tends to be a bit drier. August averages 4.4 inches and September 4.7 inches. Whenever anyone asks when they should visit the island, I usually recommend this time of year, partially because of less rain, but mostly because it seems to be a bit less windy, and when you want to get out on the sea wind is more important than rain (you’re going to get wet anyway). It also makes this time of year hotter, because the temperature on the island is almost always the same. The only thing that makes it cooler is cloud cover and wind, which there is typically less of in August and September.
