Deep Freeze in Canada but Hot in the Caribbean

Posted on: January 27th, 2014 by paul

Just because it’s minus ten degrees pretty much everywhere in Canada doesn’t mean that it’s not warm down south. This week’s Caribbean weather forecast may not make it warmer north of the border, but booking a vacation down south could bring some reprieve from this nasty weather.

Beach in Miami


In Nassau, this appears to be a good week for travelers with expected highs ranging from 26 to 28 degrees and low around 20 degrees. There will be some clouds but the only day for rain will be Thursday so stay out of the rain and take the family to the National Art Gallery of The Bahamas.


It looks like a rough week for travelers heading to Montego Bay Jamaica. Expect warm weather accompanied by thunderstorms on the horizon. It appears warms temperatures ranging between lows of 26 and highs of 31 degrees Celsius are causing conditionally unstable weather with high winds and chances of thunderstorms. Looking for something to do in the rain? Visit the Rose Hall Great House and take the tour. It’s highly recommended and said to be ‘eerie and entertaining’.


Always a popular spring break destination, Cancun just happens to be warm and toasty this week with forecasted highs of 27 or 28 degrees every day. Although there will be some rain, it will most likely have little effect on the spring break festivities.

Always a popular destination for the budget traveler, Cuba will also be very warm this week but experience variable cloudiness and some rain. Temperatures ranging from lows of 16 degrees at night will be topped out with highs of 27-31 degrees during the day. Expect rain from Wednesday through Friday. Take that opportunity to take in Havana’s rich cultural history. Start in old Havana and before making it to El Capitolio, the Havana Cathedral, and the Museo Nacional de Bellas Artes de La Habana.

Dominican Republic

This week’s weather in the Dominican Republic mirrors that of much of the rest of the Caribbean. Expect warm days between 29-31 degrees while nights will drop down to the low 20’s. It is likely to rain throughout the week with a chance of thunderstorms.

Even though this doesn’t appear to be the best week to travel, the weather still beats being stuck in the cold in Canada. A bad day on the beach is better than a day battling the commuter traffic in the snow!
