Even the threat of blistering heat or heavy rain showers won't ruin the vacation of someone who has taken the time to familiarize themselves with the weather patterns of the Virgin Islands.

Average temperatures in the Virgin Islands range from lows of 73 degrees Fahrenheit in January and February to highs of 89 degrees Fahrenheit in August and September.  Knowing these facts can help you to decide which time of year you will feel most comfortable vacationing on the islands and the type of clothing you choose to pack.  View the chart below for the average high and low temperature of each month.

Taking in information such as recognized weather patterns throughout the day is the best way to determine which activities you will be able to participate in during your trip, and when the past time to do them would be.  Early afternoon, for instance, is when the islands see a spike in temperature, so this time of day is the best for a dip in the pool, or a walk through of a local museum.
