Trinidad and Tobago
Trinidad, and the neighbouring small island of Tobago, are the most southerly islands of the Lesser Antilles. At two points Trinidad is only a few miles from the coast of Venezuela, and its climate is very similar to that of the northeast coast of that country. The table for St Clair shows that rainfall is well distributed throughout the year with a definite wetter season from June to November. Temperatures are a little higher in Trinidad than in the Caribbean Islands farther north. Trinidad is too far south to be affected by violent tropical storms in the form of hurricanes, which pass to the north of the island.
