Barbados weather in August
What weather to expect
August is in the middle of Barbados' rainy season and there's likely to be some showers during the month. The good news is that the rains are quickly driven off-island by the constant tradewinds, so that sunny weather is soon restored.
August is also within the Atlantic hurricane season. Again there is good news, as Barbados has not been struck by a major hurricane since 1955!
