weather in january/february

Can someone tell me what to expect for weather at the end of January or early February on Grand Cayman? (Temperature, wind rain) Does it tend to be windy, and if so is there one side of the island that would be more affected since one of our main activities would be snorkeling? We would likely be staying at the Reef resort.

Our trips are during that time period. When we have been there, we have always found the weather to be perfect. We are thankful for the ocean breeze, it helps to keep cool and comfy. Have not experienced winds that make the sand sting you, etc. We usually divide our trips (because of conventions) between the Cayman Kai area and 7MB. We prefer the East of Boddentown part of GC.

Hi LvSun - Quick follow-up... what is the water temperature like in Grand Cayman in late Feb? I'm planning a quick two-night getaway from NYC there and am afraid that I may need to head even further south for warmer climes! Thanks!

It will typically be a bit breezier than in the summer, but in summer it can be totally still and so very hot, so the breeze cools things off nicely.

It can indeed be a little breezier still in the Eastern part of Cayman, but given that it is so quiet out East that you have easy access to the N, E and S coasts, if the wind is a little high out of one direction, you can simply scoot round a few minutes to a snorkelling spot (there are many in the area!) which is on a lee side.

Weather in Jan/Feb is typically well nigh perfect, unless we get one of the occasional cold fronts that may sweep down from the northern winter... when that happens the sun gets hidden, we can get some rain.. and the wind chill may even drop down to... the 60s

We were in GC staying on the East End in Feb. 2005 and found it a little cooler than we expected, but mainly because we were diving and spending a lot of time in the water or on the boat. We're used to being there in the spring or summer when the water is bathtub warm, so for us it seemed cold (water temp was high 70s, I think).
