Does Aruba Get Hurricanes?

Aruba, Bonaire and Curaçao are located in the southern fringes of the hurricane belt, not outside of it as some may say, located in the southern Caribbean dry zone. The weather is defined as being in a tropical steppe, semiarid hot climate with a discernible dry and rainy season, and having sustained moderate to fresh easterlies.

Aruba's dry season runs roughly from February through June, and the rainy season starts in September and ends in January. Rain showers occur more often in the early morning hours, and during our rainy season it can be in the early morning or early to late evening hours. The lowest average cloud cover is in the month of February and the highest average cloud cover is in the month of May, mainly due to upper-level clouds. On daily basis the average cloudiness of the sky is the highest in the morning hours and the lowest in the late evening.
