General conditions
The trade winds that blow almost continually throughout The Bahamas give the islands a warm, agreeable climate, which varies little year round. The most refreshing time is from December through February when the temperature averages 70–75°F (21–24°C). 
The rest of the year is a bit warmer with temperatures between 80–85°F (27–29°C).
The weather at this base is comparable to Miami, Florida; mostly sunny with some clouds. We advise that you dress for sun and sand and bring a light jacket for the evenings when it's cooler.
