September is statistically the time most hurricanes are about in the Caribbean generally so there is always a risk but actually Antigua has escaped many in past years. We were hit by a small fast moving one in mid October last year ( all over in 6 hours and would have had little effect on most people on holiday here) but before that you have to go back to mid and late 90s for the previous two, both of which were very destructive and disruptive.

The last two Septembers have been unusually nice with lots of sunshine and little rain but nobody can knows for sure what will happen.this year, there only has to be one passing by a couple of hundred miles away and you might get 3 days of torrential rain. Even if there is no hurricane , a tropical wave crossing the area can bring several days of poor weather.

The upside? September usually offers really good deals on flights and resorts because it is quiet season, but that does also mean some resorts and many restaurants, bars and attractions are closed or running limited opening hours. Probably a good time to choose an all-inclusive.

Very wise to take out hurricane insurance just in case your holiday does get badly affected - though I don't think the insurance will go as far as covering grey wet days- only actual travel delays and cancelations.
