I've gone to the Bahamas
that time of year. Not in my own Boat! The weather is beautiful for a few days, then windy and rainy for a few days, The rainy days may be hurricane force winds! If you watch the weather closely it can be done, but if you don't have alot of experience in a hurricane zone I would stay clear. If the storm is NOT a named hurricane, it may not be in the news, but you will still be miserable on the water
. The high waves precede the major storms by several days, and can persist for several days afterward depending on the storm track. The Hurricane season "officially" is from June 1 to Nov 30, but the bulk of the storms go from mid July to late september. Lately the major storms are later in the season, even up into December. Basically after about July 4th You will be dodging a big storm once a week or two. They are hard to predict more than a few days in advance. In Texas
we get a heads up when they pass Florida
, that gives us an additional week of warning. But in the Bahamas all you will know is that it's cloudy and wavey, and it's out there in the Atlantic, ...Somewhere.
