Anguilla weather varies little between seasons because of its tropical location. Though rainy days may make up a small part of Anguilla weather, the climate here is more arid than you would expect for the Caribbean. Any showers are usually short-lived, a result of the building humidity, and are replaced quickly by a fresh sunny blue sky.
