In the Köppen climate classification, Aruba has a tropical semi-arid climate. Mean monthly temperature in Oranjestad varies little from 26.7 °C (80.1 °F) to 29.2 °C (84.6 °F), moderated by constant trade winds from the Atlantic Ocean, which comes from north-east. Yearly precipitation barely exceeds 470 mm (18.5 in) in Oranjestad.

Of all of the Caribbean islands, Aruba has the best history of dodging damaging tropical storms and hurricanes. In fact, only as few as 6 have reached 62 miles or closer since 1877. This helps keep the island and their residents free from calamity and destruction.
