When you think about Curacao and weather, you rarely think of hurricanes. This is because hurricanes are few and far between when talking about weather in Curacao. There have only been 5 direct hurricane hits to this island in the last 138 years, with one striking the island every 27 years or so on average.
This is because Curacao is located outside of the hurricane belt. As a result there is not much to worry about at any time of the year when it comes to tropical storms interrupting Curacao weather. However, on occasion a tropical storm in other parts of the Caribbean will cause a few scattered days of cloudy weather in Curacao. This is very rare though, and occurs mostly in late summer through fall.
