Hurricane season in Jamaica starts on June 1 and ends on Nov. 30. Satellite weather forecasts work to allow tourists and island dwellers adequate time to take precautions when hurricanes approach during those months.
Information services associated with the Weather Channel and the National Weather Service offer up-to-date reports on severe weather developments in Jamaica, including hurricanes or tropical storms. Many tourists choose to avoid traveling during Jamaica's hurricane season, taking advantage of off-season prices and less crowded beaches. In addition to the hurricane season, Jamaica also has two rainy seasons, which occur during the month of May and October through November.
