1. Average Temperature
According to WeatherSpark, the temperature in the capital city of Havana rarely goes below 52 degrees Fahrenheit or above 92 degrees Fahrenheit. Temperatures usually fall somewhere between 61 F and 90 F, and even though the weather is primarily hot, nighttime temperatures are sometimes cool. The warmest time of year is between May and September, when temperatures average around 87 F for a high. Things cool down slightly between December and February, with high temperatures averaging around 78 F.

2. Precipitation
Cuba rarely has the type of severe weather commonly seen in the United States – torrential rainfall and tornadoes, or blizzards, for example. However, there is a hurricane season, which lasts from July through November, according to World Travel Guide. Though the nation has been hit by several Category 4 and Category 5 hurricanes, the storms often don't produce as much damage or injuries as you might expect, with the exception of megastorms like Hurricane Sandy. According to The New York Times, the chances of surviving a hurricane in Cuba are higher than in the United States. The rainy season typically lasts from May to October, and includes light rain and occasionally thunderstorms. Days are rarely overcast but are sometimes partly cloudy.

3. Other Factors
Even with its sometimes sweltering atmosphere, Cuba's climate is mild in many ways. Winds, for example, are usually light, typically staying under 17 miles per hour and only occasionally reaching higher than 25 miles per hour. Even at their highest, they're still classified as no more than a strong breeze.
